The posters are abusive, one has photos of Tony Blair, John Major, and Paddy Ashdown with the headline " wankers", while another urged "Vote Blair for another Tory government, F*** the election".
The "wankers" poster is produced by the Committee of Public Safety. The one accusing Tony Blair of heralding another Tory government is being distributed by the Anti-Election Alliance.
But following the few clues on the material tend to lead towards a much more familiar name from the annals of British anarchism, Class War.
The Committee of Public Safety gives a box number in Colston Street, Bristol. But a trawl through left-wing agitprop groups as well as police sources led to the consensus that the committee is almost certainly Class War. Bristol is the headquarters of the group.
The Anti-Election Alliance's box number leads back to 27 Old Gloucester Street, in Covent Garden, central London. The address houses a telephone message box, as well as box number for a variety of fringe political groups including the Revolutionary Communist Party and the Revolutionary Conservative Caucus.
A series of messages left for Class War eventually led to a call from a man named Dave, who said he represented the organisation. He claimed the politicians "are taking the public for a ride" and claimed the election was a pointless, expensive exercise.
At 27 Old Gloucester Street, Bruno Waterfield, of the Revolutionary Communist Party stated it was certainly opposed to the election, but was not aware the Anti-Election Alliance was part of the RCP.Reuse content
