Spoof election poster showing Ann Widdecombe, with caption "Vote Labour, or next time she's naked"

There are fears today that the election could descend into a flame war after Labour Party activists allegedly sent offensive emails personally attacking Tory politicians.

The offensive and abusive emails have been condemned by both major political parties but it's still too early to say whether Tory extremists will retaliate with an equally vicious attack.

If that should happen then the e-lection could descend into a vitriolic slanging match that would even make fishwives blush.

A report by Ananova tells how one flame contained a picture of Tory MP Ann Widdecombe with the words: "Vote Labour...or next time she's naked."

Another contains two Grade A expletives that cast doubt on the electoral credibility of the Conservative Party. ®

* Have you been sent any political flames? If so, pass them on to El Reg will ya? Cheers
