REMINDER TO POLLIES: Don’t Ever Post A Photo Of Yourself Holding A Sign

I understand why politicians go for the social media post featuring them holding a piece of paper featuring some kind of slogan. It’s super easy. It’s a nice visual way of conveying a message. I get it.

But here’s the skinny: stop doing it. Stop it. The only result will be that the criminals, cutthroats and ne’er-do-wells of the online world will take your picture, they will erase your slogan, and they will put something rude in its place. Your reputation will be in tatters. You will be left a husk of your former self.
Today’s victim is Tony Blair, who posted a photo of himself holding a sign proudly proclaiming his support for the Remain side of the Brexit vote. It took approximately one second before he was hit.

Despite Jim’s kind warning, there was to be no mercy in this life or the next.

Please. For the love of God. Don’t post photos holding a piece of paper.
