Quite simply, the best headline in a Labour leaflet – ever

Courtesy of the Hull Labour Party, from the May 2008 elections. You can’t really argue with that headline can you?

    As Lance-Corporal Jones puts it, “They don’t like it up ’em!”.

    The Labour “union jack” leaflet in the recent LB Lewisham Downham ward by-election was only the latest in bizarre leaflets they’ve thrown at us there, they do get rattled very easily when we’ve won wards they think are naturally theirs.

    Lesson from this is don’t let yourself get rattled, and if you are don’t show it in the stuff you put out to the punters. Revenge served cold (e.g. in the Focus you put out when they’ve gone away to wait for the next election) can work, but it must always be understated. Cllr Duwayne Brooks union jack tie at the count was a brilliant example of the subtle response to their idiocy.

    Yes….and the content of the leaflet was even better! And As for caligula, that is what some of the Labour group called their ex leader 🙂

    Ass? or mule?

  • Chris. I’ve seen “Labour promises nothing” on a Labour leaflet. Was about council tax but didn’t go down very well as few people read below headlines.
