Setting the standard

Plaid Cymru, the Party of wails are to fight the General Election campaign with the slogan, "Labour lied, vote Plaid". At least it has the virtue of rhyming.

This descent into yah-boo politics so early on does not bode well for a constructive and adult disussion of the issues. Nor does the predictability of Welsh Labour's defence. They have hit back by saying that Plaid are "whingeing for Wales".

As slogans go neither come anywhere near matching that used by the Liberal Party in October 1974, when they urged the British electorate to go for "one more heave". Still at least the latter was positive and optimistic, the current crop are almost guaranteed to alienate a large number of voters.
