I’M sure when Chris Philp, the Conservative election challenger in Hampstead and Kilburn, posted a billboard of himself across the constituency, this unprecedented act of local promotion drew were a few sneers from his Lib Dem competitor Ed Fordham. Did that happen? Maybe I’m mistaken, as look what’s just appeared up in Hillgrove Road… Ed on a hoarding.
People like Alastair Campbell have claimed the death of the election poster is nigh. The message clearly hasn’t got through to candidates in north Camden. Billboards for local candidates were once unheard of, now they are the fashion of the day.
