Labour’s new membership leaflet shows just how unpopular even they think Gordon Brown is

It’s a membership leaflet from Labour.

One side is covered by a large photo of a politician addressing a crowd.

Gordon Brown perhaps? No.

Or even another Cabinet minister? No.

Or a popular figure from the past? No again.

Instead, they seem to have decided they’re all so unpopular that the way to get someone to join Labour is to use the picture of the leader of another country:

The reverse does have one mention of a Labour member. Admittedly it’s their General Secretary Ray Collins, and he only gets named in the imprint. But fair’s fair, there is his name in tiny print at the foot of the page.

  • Says it all really – they’re relying on global and G20 as a narrative.

    Surely that haircut, those shoulders and those ears can only be David Milliband? Brown Central will really explode when that penny drops.

  • Mike,

    presumably MC’s point is that we’ll have to pulp the leaflets next week when we depose Nick Clegg and replace him with Lembit Opik, or me, or whoever …

    Very droll!
