Given my long-distance relationship with UK politics—which, to be honest, has not been greatly affected by geographical distance—the upcoming general election in Great Britain would have pretty much passed me by were it not for the the Guardian plastering it all over their website like it actually meant something.
Apathy aside though, it’s worth taking a quick, virtual flick through the Labour manifesto when you get a moment. Never have so many words said so little.
“This is a Manifesto about the greater progressive change we need because of the tougher times we are living through.”
Nice one, language!
