We are like Ronseal. We do exactly what it says on the tin
Oh no he didn’t (or din’t). Yes, David Cameron quoted the Ronseal ad when referring to the stability of the Coalition today. I wonder if this will mark a trend for politicians? Will we get the likes of UKIP and BNP saying “Go compare, we are both right-wing, but go compare!” or will we get the Green party going “Look how shiny we get this new green policy” (Barry Scott fans, never fear, I got the pun in).
Let’s face it, the coalition has never been the easiest of political marriages; on the one hand you have touchy-feely, hey I’m one of you guys, but hey I’m sorry I don’t follow-through on my promises Lib-Dems, and then you have we are all in it together, except when we aren’t, you plebby lot Conservatives. To ‘marry’ (sic) these two types of viewpoints there has been much wrangling behind the scenes, so that in front of the cameras it simply looks like an equanimous front (most of the time). Add to this cocktail the dithering of Ed Milliband and the Labour Party …. well, you get my point. It is a mess.
When political leaders start using well-known advertisements to reassure punters/voters that all is well, you have to start to worry for the nation. Where is the concrete proof that the coaltion isn’t for show, and that there really is a plan to get us out of this awful financial mess?
What happened to substance over style?
