In the hours following the Labour Party Rally in Coventry where the Prime Minister unveiled Labour’s vision for the country under the slogan “A Future Fair For All” the twitterverse was awash with the rumour that the Official Monster Raving Loony party had adopted a very similar slogan “A Future Fun Fair For All’.
The official home page for the Raving Loonies throws doubt on the veracity of the claim. There is no mention of it at all. The likelihood is that it is a product of witty twittering. It does suggest that one of the biggest effects of the social web during the election campaign will be the spoofing of parties, candidates and especially leaders. We have already seen it with the fabulous Cameron posters. We are going to see it again. And again.
