I was reminded at the weekend that Winston Churchill’s regular refrain/command during the dark days of the war was “KBO, KBO”, which apparently meant ‘keep buggering on’. Reading some of the ‘genius’ economic commentators and analysts at the weekend (the same ones who almost to a person did NOT predict any of the current financial or economic situation) I think it’s good advice to those of us with businesses to run and manage rather than just columns to fill. This poster from the same period apparently was put up around the UK by the Ministry of Information. I love it’s classic simplicity and the idea that people might actually do what a poster on the street instructed. Am thinking of having them put up at Edelman.
