Cultural Impact

In 2010, the Labour Party used an edited image of Gene Hunt on the Quattro with David Cameron's face as part of its general election campaign with the words "Don’t let him take Britain back to the 1980s" – comparing his policies to those of Margaret Thatcher, whose economic policy in the early 1980s saw substantial spending cuts and a sharp rise in unemployment.

In response to this, the Conservatives copied the image with the words "Fire up the Quattro. It's time for Change. Vote for Change. Vote Conservative." Subsequently Kudos Productions, which owns the copyright to the Gene Hunt character, wrote to both parties requiring them to cease using the image.

Famous quotes containing the words impact and/or cultural:

    As in political revolutions, so in paradigm choice—there is no standard higher than the assent of the relevant community. To discover how scientific revolutions are effected, we shall therefore have to examine not only the impact of nature and of logic, but also the techniques of persuasive argumentation effective within the quite special groups that constitute the community of scientists.
    Thomas S. Kuhn (b. 1922)

    Hard times accounted in large part for the fact that the exposition was a financial disappointment in its first year, but Sally Rand and her fan dancers accomplished what applied science had failed to do, and the exposition closed in 1934 with a net profit, which was donated to participating cultural institutions, excluding Sally Rand.
