Colour coding

email received 28 October 2004

I realised in my perusings of Michael Moore et al that the US parties are colour coded in the opposite way to the UK ones -

ie 'paint the state RED' means voting for the Republicans and 'paint it BLUE' means the Democrats

EXACTLY the opposite to our own UK Blue Conservatives and RED Labour -

Do you think some of those at Number 10 recognised the colours of the Bush party rather than what they stood for?
