The classic political badge
In the year of Jubilee, a classic - if controversial - badge from an earlier Jubilee is back on the market.
And this isn't a reissue. A cache of fifty of these 1977 badges, one of the most celebrated of political badges, has been unearthed and put on sale - at a fiver a time.
A bargain - given that one of the originals was sold recently on eBay for a staggering £44.63!
The designer was Sherrl Yanowitz. Her first badge design - and in the end they shifted more than 40,000.
I tried ordering one from Bookmarks but it seems to be unavailable now. I guess they've all been snapped up ever since you mentioned them! Its a 'timeless' classic and so appropriate today!!
Where can I purchase a "Tories are lower than vermin" badge with an added picture of a rat?
