Well, it’s true. The logo that appeared on Iain Dale’s blog this morning is going to be the new Tory logo. Two reactions:
- Iain scanned the image from his conference pass – which arrived in this morning’s post… a full seven days before the Party had officially scheduled the launch of the logo… in Leeds next week. Another organisational triumph for CCHQ.
- How much did the party pay for this design? It looks like a child’s drawing. Someone has compared it to the coin scratch on a Lottery card. ConservativeHome welcomed the idea of an oak tree image – in fact we first proposed it. An oak tree stands for strength, patriotism, conservation and tradition. This image is ill-defined and doesn’t really communicate any of those qualities. Is it too late for CCHQ to think again? Please!
There’ll be a blogging stand at Tory conference. See here for more.
