First of the election paraphernalia has arrived - and as you can see it was a bit of rush job.
The Tories very quickly turned a Labour poster - "don't let him take us back to the 1980s" - to their own advantage. But this Tory mug of the poster, with David Cameron as Gene Hunt, came out upside down.
It's like firing up the Quattro, hitting the accelerator and forgetting you left it in reverse gear. Honestly, if they can't print a mug properly...
I can see that mug making it to the Antiques Road show in years to come though.
