The Politician’s Progress

I couldn’t help but notice the subliminal headline used on a puff piece about Green MP Chloe Swarbrick on Stuff. As an ex-English teacher and a voracious reader, I was well aware that both the photo and the headline were designed to encourage me to make a subliminal connection between Chloe and New Zealand writer Janet Frame’s autobiography, An Angel at my table.

It is a technique full of possibilities. Here is an example that I prepared earlier.
