Tory General Election Slogan:

Recommended Posts

Do you think the Tories ought to ressurect the old 1979 Saatchi billboard posters for the next General Election? Found the piccy below on the Daily Mail site, it's been updated with 'still' but I think it should be '...again'. I think it would be quite a success if they did reuse it! However, I can understand the opinions of those who hate the Tories or politics in general.

how about a repeat of 1997

Demon Eye (singular)

haha!!!!

I did like that campaign. Mawhinney did commission another ad that showed a Tony Blair character making a pact with the devil in order to gain power, however, Major thought it too negative. I think regardless of the Tory ads in the 1997 GE, they were gonna be out on their arses no matter what. But the 'New Labour, New Danger' was a good 'un especially as the chap who's eyes were used (upside down) was in fact a member of the Labour Party...well...so said The Sun back in the day!

I'd like to see the Torie's TV campaign make heavy use of the "Things can only get better" song... that'd be a real kicker.

Of course, it won't happen because they've supported the vast majority of the crap that Labour has done over the last decade... they can't even do the war angle. (remember that war thingy? Yeah, been a while hasn't it?)

Is it me or does one not hear much of that song these days? I DJ a lot at weekends and that is the one song that I turn down when it's requested. The request is met with a simple "I haven't got it"!

new defence secretary every 6 months... money printing, ponzi finance... 3 houses on expenses, half the population's data left on trains...

i'd suggest a 'Banana Republic' theme would have more than a ring of truth

Nope, because under the tories short term, unemployment would likely be higher, as they take an axe to spending. They'd rightly get torn to shreds for such a campaign slogan.

Long term gain is gonna require short term pain, not a great slogan but the truth.

Manifesto

An overview of our programme for government can be found below. As we formally launch our policy for each area, we will provide a more detailed analysis of each specific topic.

The manifesto outlined below is designed to act as a set of stepping stones towards a more Libertarian society. It is not our end goal. Unlike other political parties, we do actually have a genuine vision to pursue, which will lead to a truly free society for all. This manifesto is simply the first step on the long journey required to free UK citizens from all aspects of state slavery.

A Key Principle — The Rule of Law

The concept of The Rule of Law is distinct from just being ruled by laws. The Rule of Law encompasses, amongst other things, property rights, due process, equality and transparency. It also includes the notion that there should be as few laws as possible, and that those that do exist should be simple, clear and predictable in their application.

Property rights are corporeal (your body), intellectual (your ideas, thoughts, beliefs), physical (possessions, land) and capital (your money or other financial assets). Due process includes trial by a jury of your peers, habeas corpus and no detention without charge. Equality is where the same laws apply to all without fear, favour or special cases. Transparency is open and visible decision-making and accountability, such that corruption cannot hide.

As a Party, we feel that The Rule of Law is one of the vital yardsticks by which we measure our policies and will conduct ourselves once elected.

Economy Overview

Prime responsibility is Rule of Law, which encompasses consistent treatment, taxation and regulation for all, and respect for legitimate property rights corporeal, intellectual, physical and capital. We shall shift towards taxing spending, not income. The State has a responsibility to not destabilise the economy nor create government debt, which is both a tax on the existing population and a mortgage on our children's future.

"I am in favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it's possible. The reason I am is because I believe the big problem is not taxes, the big problem is spending. The question is, 'How do you hold down government spending?' Government spending now amounts to close to 40% of national income not counting indirect spending through regulation and the like. If you include that, you get up to roughly half. The real danger we face is that number will creep up and up and up. The only effective way I think to hold it down, is to hold down the amount of income the government has. The way to do that is to cut taxes." — Milton Friedman

Healthcare Overview

Our aim is to enable people to hold their healthcare provider to account and, if found wanting, have the freedom to take their business elsewhere. This cannot be done while the State is the monopoly provider who takes payment, commissions, runs and administers that monopoly. We will introduce measures to redress this position, whilst maintaining existing commitments in areas such as care for the elderly and the mentally ill.

[More]

Education Overview

We have a de-facto State monopoly and excessive control over education, which will be removed via the introduction of a Swedish-style voucher system. Increased parental choice will lead to schools that genuinely serve the needs of our children developing. Government interference in the curriculum and examination system will be removed, as will all centrally dictated targets.

[More]

Defence Overview

Our aim is to ensure a strong, independent, sovereign nation. This requires a well funded, trained and equipped professional Armed Forces (both full time and Reservist), geared for the defence of our nation and shipping.

"Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations—entangling alliances with none" — Thomas Jefferson

Energy independence will remove the need and temptation for the UK to be involved in many theatres of conflict around the world.

[More]

Immigration Overview

Totally free movement of people into the UK is not practical whilst we have a large welfare state and other countries are themselves not broadly Libertarian in nature. In line with the Rule of Law, a transparent, consistent points based system is one of our key proposed measures to humanely manage migration.

[More]

Welfare Overview

Welfare was envisaged as being a safety net, not the hammock it has become. We aim to refrain from nurturing dependency, while encouraging self-reliance and charitable works via a steady evolution and review of existing welfare arrangements. As with healthcare, the Libertarian Party believes strongly in honouring existing commitments, and this applies to the State Pension.

[More]

Housing and Planning

State interference in land use and housing often results in an unresponsive market or projects that suit outside interests and not the community. Our policies aim to reverse this position, and put local people back in charge of local developments.

[More]

Transport Overview

Subsidies and cartels that distort the running and creation of our national transport infrastructure are addressed by our policies, and resolved.

[More]

Law and Order Overview

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" — Benjamin Franklin

Freedoms won for us by the blood of our ancestors have been seriously eroded over the decades, and this erosion is gaining speed and must be reversed. It is a core responsibility of the State to enable the citizens to go safely about their lawful business without let or hindrance.

[More]

Constitutional Overview

"And I do declare that no foreign prince, person, prelate, state or potentate hath or ought to have any jurisdiction, power, superiority, pre-eminence or authority, ecclesiastical or spiritual, within this realm. So help me God." — from the Oath of Allegiance in the English Bill of Rights, 1689

The Libertarian Party is committed to reassert the primacy of our Bill of Rights and Common Law system over the Napoleonic system that has encroached from the continent in recent years.

And my favoured mode of transport was the space hopper, times move on. I don't think they'd be brave enough to fight on unemployment, labours borrowing whilst completely reckless long term is helping the unemployment figures. The should focus on the debt burden, perhaps a piccy of a baby tied to a ball and chain with the word debt on it.

Yes but NE and Housing Booms and Busts were a thing of the past yet here we are again! I think you'll find that people have very short memorys. Just like those who can't remember "Things can only get better..." or "24 hours to save the NHS".
