On the subject of assertive delivery I like the Guardian's (ahem) 'Special' on Gordon Brown's new alpha male electoral tactic.
One tactic (for) the three ground-breaking TV debates between the candidates... Brown, instead of responding to a point made by Cameron, would walk over from his microphone with an exaggerated silent display of self-control, bring his face to within an inch of the Tory leader's, and in a subdued voice, ask "what did you just say?"Also
Possible confrontations under discussion include pushing Andrew Marr out of the way while passing him on a staircase, or thumping the back of Jeremy Paxman's chair so hard that he flinches in shock.
It's not attributed but that's Armando Ianucci's writing isn't it?
ETA full set of new campaign posters can be viewed here. Vote Labour, or else.
I can actually see those posters working.
I always thought there would be mileage in a Lib Dem campaign along the lines of "Who would you rather have: Charles Kennedy drunk, or Tony Blair sober?", but alas it was not to be.
Those posters look like Gene Genie took up politics.
OMG you are so right. I don't have a surly enough looking icon but, yes
Oh, it was that one! I thought it might be the Anish Kapoor tower.
The perfect icon as always

I've just worked out what "Olaf Priol" is an anagram of.
Yes: 'Lo, Fairlop!'
Fairlop is the UK's most marginal constituency
Bless him, I think as hawkeye says below, the stretch would be too great
Don Draper would point out that the public will accept all sorts of thing provided that it is completely consistent wit the politician's image, but will reject for anything perceived as inconsistent with that image. So if he has always been seen as a street brawler, then this will work just fine.
I thought this one was a real winner. Very funny.
Yes. Instead of leaving it to a few staffers they got the big guy in - Ianucci I would bet my bottom dollar.
