Labour isn't working posterSo said Chancellor, Philip Hammond on yesterday’s Andrew Marr Show. You may not remember this poster from the 1979 Tory campaign.

At the time unemployment had hit 1.4 million and Saatchi and Saatchi produced this poster. By February 1984 unemployment had hit 3.28 million! Unemployment stayed at over 2 million until 1997 and fell to under 1.4 million in August 2004.

After the recession unemployment jumped to 2.4 million in 2009 and currently stands at about 1.5 million.

The Tories certainly aren’t working either and with Brexit on the horizon unemployment is likely to rise again.
