That's Lara the Kampfkuh. The CVP's new mascot.

The Val d'Herens cow Laura is the new mascot of CVP/PDC party.

Re: Foreigners not the target or the latest SVP posters

And the UDC want to use THAT as a campaigning poster? The mind really boggles. No wonder young people are disgusted or totally switched off with politics, if that is the level of total c**p aimed for?

Most young people I know aren't exactly shocked by sex or by naughtiness on posters. How many young people are shocked by MTV?

It's more the older style of conservative folks who are going to be shocked by this one IMHO.

.... also the stars around her head signify their (CVP) pro-EU stance, with the SVP bull appropriately branded with the date of the founding of the Swiss Federation, as if to say:

"We've stood this long alone, and we can continue to flourish and prosper alone".
[my interpretation]

The Wallis/Valais people just love their fighting cows - so they might not take kindly to this- hopefully.

The SVP or UDC never fail to amuse. It is only a matter of time until they are treated the same as child molesters.

Unfortunately, probably not. Here are the federal election (Federal Assembly of Switzerland) results for the last 40 years for the SVP/UDC and its antecedents. There's a definite trend there ...

Election ... total votes ... % popular vote ... seats won

1971 ........ 217,908 ........ 11.1% ................. 23
1975 ........ 190,445 .......... 9.9% ................. 21
1979 ........ 210,425 ........ 11.6% ................. 23
1983 ........ 215,457 ........ 11.1% ................. 23
1987 ........ 211,535 ........ 11.0% ................. 25
1991 ........ 240,353 ........ 11.9% ................. 25
1995 ........ 280,420 ........ 14.9% ................. 29
1999 ........ 440,159 ........ 22.5% ................. 44
2003 ........ 561,817 ........ 26.6% ................. 55
2007 ........ 672,562 ........ 28.9% ................. 62

Re: Foreigners not the target of the latest SVP posters

Quite honestly, the CVP laid themselves open to this with their silly new mascot.

I know for whom I shall vote when I finally get my little red book...
