Why’s the COI pulling ads from the end of February?
In the coming weeks and months we are going to get a lot of different stories which could fuel the election date speculation.
One snippet has just been past onto the me. The government’s main communications arm, the COI, is said to be pulling all outdoor advertising from after the end of February. This could be just precautionary but the convention, as I understand it, is that there is a big restriction on advertising by government during election periods – and you can see the reason why.
Another snippet suggests that the Tories, at least, are taking the March date suggestion very seriously and have started block booking key outdoor locations for the weeks leading up to March 25th.
Who knows? If there are more polls showing Labour’s deficit in single digits then Brown Central might just be tempted.
