A large title-less poster showing Barak Obama standing outside No. 10 in a zone 3 tube station (tooting broadway) in London. does anyone know what is the purpose of this?

 

its amazing how US politics has influenced the world and how the man making history over there, across the atlantic from Britain, is asking for a chance to become one of the most influential person on the planet. A man with an ordinary history but extraordinary dream.

 

In a funny way, if Barack Obama becomes President of the US, his policies and promises will have much influence here in the UK as would the policies of labour/tories/libdems or whichever party that is in power here... the poster depicting him standing outside downing street, in a ordinary tube station platform here in South West London only goes to affirm that.

 

it will be interesting to see how the US elections plan out... and the results are still uncertain... one thing I'm certain of - there isn't a poster of Gordon Brown in a NY subway station.
