So, there’s to be a general election on 8th June. Last time, in 2015, I stood for the Lib Dems in Banbury, winning 6% of the vote and just saving the deposit. I wait to see whether I will be invited to stand there again in June. Coming off the back of a real fight in my county division for this May’s county council elections, another four weeks of campaigning isn’t what I expected.
Still, time to start thinking of some new slogans to go alongside the ‘If you voted remain in 2016 then vote Lib Dem in 2017.’
I think education will play a bigger part in the sub-text of this general election than in 2015, when it barely rated a mention.
Here are two possible slogans for starters
If you want your child to attend;
A secondary modern school; Vote Conservative
A good comprehensive: Vote Liberal Democrat
Another might be
If you think children;
Can be taught by unqualified teachers: Vote Conservative
Need professionally trained teachers: Vote Liberal Democrat
Do let me know of any other such slogans that you can suggest for the campaign.
