One of the very best Conservative leaflets ever

Feeling tired as we near the end of a hectic campaign? Well, here’s something to bring a smile to your face. Quite simply, one of the very best Conservative leaflets ever (though it’s headline isn’t in this class). It’s from 2000 I believe:

    The last Great Liberal who was Prime Minister was Winston Churchill, but nevermind.

    If only everyone had a 120 year old relative I could ask about the 1906 govt, then maybe we’d do better?

  • Wonderful!

    A lot better than anything they have put up around here!

  • It reads like a Lib Dem leaflet – the others came third, they can’t win here, it’s a two horse race, blah blah blah. I’m surprised they didn’t go the full hog and super-impose bar charts onto DLG’s face.

  • I once saw a Tory leaflet in Bradford on Avon which said as the opening line “Tory candidate John Smith was born in Bradford – not Bradford on Avon, Bradford in Yorkshire!” Not a line I would have used to open with. He lost, badly, to us.

    But I did meet an elderly voter once who pointed out that last time we were in office, a world war broke out. Perhaps the Tories should use that one? “LibDems are anti-German” anyone?

  • And I thought dredging up the Winter of Discontent against Labour was spreading it a little thin… quite ingenius.

    Just waiting for someone to bring up the 1922 Chanak Crisis to say we’re hypocrits on Turkish admission into the EU.
