The blurry oak

New Tory logo made by kids?

The Conservative Party has revealed it's new logo, and for my money it looks as though my five year old daughter created it with a well worn felt tipped pen. The image of the oak tree has been chosen as it represents strength, renewal, endurance, and growth, as well as the party's new softer image with greener credentials.picture, Tory Party Logo by Beau Bo D'or As a replacement to the "torch" I think it's "minging" as do a lot of other Conservative supporters who have expressed their opinions in Iain Dale's Diary.

The concept for the design originated from the grass roots when the Conservative blog "Tory Diary" asked for suggestions and the party took opinion from it's membership. In all changing the logo, developed by London marketing agency Perfect Day, has cost the party 40,000 pounds. There are separate national logos for the party in England, Wales, and Scotland

I hope that they can quickly learn not to waste expenditure so easily when in government!

My favourite satirist Beau Bo D'or thinks that the BBC may be worried about plagiarism, what do you think?
