Arthur Balfour was the 33rd Prime Minister of Great Britain

I've seen these posters dotted around Birmingham - yellow background with black text. It has exercised a few on the net and there seem to be regional variations - Scots report Spencer Perceval, Liverpool claims Robert Peel and Henry Addington gets a look in as well.

They're all Tories - so is there going to be one for Michael Howard? I'm not sure that Perceval is a PM he'd want to emulate, as that's the only one to have been assassinated.

If anyone out there knows the answer, please put me out of my misery.

By the way, somebody has defaced one of the Tory posters in the centre of Birmingham. It now reads 'It's not racist... to deport Tories.' Raised a chuckle driving past - not that I would condone criminal damage, of course.

The Tories had a "It's not racist to be concerned about immigration? Are you thinking what we are thinking?" sat outside Birmingham Central Mosque.

Apparently it was an experiment by Clear Channel to see how well pure bill board advertising did in creating a "buzz". http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/Adverts/Question97665.html
