Political party slogans have changed over the years, as seen in this vintage cinema advertising slide. Showing the 'nuclear family' depicted in advertising and literature of the time, the slogan itself could easily double as a Hollywood mafia threat! 

It probably wouldn't have been read like that at the time though! This wasn't the only slogan which would be seen as suspect today- the MAVtech Kete collection has a National Party slide whose meaning might be misinterpreted...

During the 'first past the post' elections voters only elected their local candidate. As a result,  relatively few of our vintage political slides show the party leader. Most profile who was standing to be the local Member of Parliament or they showed a 'values' picture like this one.
