If Labour leader Ed Miliband becomes the prime minister after the 7 May elections, he will be a puppet in the hands of Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) that has offered him support, a new Conservative poster claims.
As campaigning intensifies, leaders and pundits are already drawing up contours of possible coalitions or supporting a minority government from the outside. The most likely scenario is Miliband forming the government with support from SNP and other smaller parties.
No political poster has so far matched the iconic 1978 poster produced by Saatch & Saatchi for the Conservative party, depicting a long queue of people before the employment office, with three words in lage print: 'Labour Isn’t Working'.
But the latest poster by the Conservatives has caught the attention of many for its depiction of a wily Sturgeon holding the strings with Miliband as the puppet, with the warning: ‘More taxes, more borrowing, more debt’.
