Dress Down Friday


Now, here’s a story which is so trivial that it merits filing under Dress Down Friday rather than UK Politics.

Apparently, this poster is offensive to jews:


Because both Letwin and Howard are jewish. And pigs are not kosher. Do you follow?

And who says that this is offensive?

Why, its Andrew Mennear, Tory candidate for Finchley and Golders Green!

Apparently, there’s also another poster which “shows Mr Howard hunched over a watch and chain, in what some say is a pose reminiscent of Shylock”

This story has only slightly more substance.
