The posters are the work of satirist Darren Cullen, whose previous efforts include lampooning military recruitment and his ‘Pocket Money Loans’ campaign.

Cullen has also subtly corrupted the Tory logo, which features a tree, so that it resembles a mushroom cloud to highlight May’s commitment to pressing the ‘red button’ in the event of nuclear war.

“I wanted to draw attention to the dangers we face with another five years of Tory rule. The NHS certainly cannot survive another Conservative government, and the rest of us might not either,” Cullen told RT.

“But there is, and always has been, an alternative to the rapacious destruction of community, the worship of materialism and the denial of empathy for society’s most vulnerable,” he said.
It appears that members of the public are printing their own copies of Cullen’s work and plastering them around the city.
