Greet the Dawn Labour tea towel
This political tea towel is based on a vintage poster design created by the Labour Party for the 1923 General Election. It requested, ‘Give Labour its chance!’, and the people listened – at 191, the election saw Labour win a record number of seats. Although this was less than the Conservatives 258, it enables Labour to form a minority government with the support of the Liberal Party’s 159 seats. There was a feeling of a radical new dawn approaching, but unfortunately, the sun never quite rose: the agreement with the Liberals prevented the party from implementing much of its promised agenda. Today, with the modern Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn similarly wishing for a chance to institute radical change, the design remains relevant.
