In the last year, I’ve brought you the best headline in a Labour leaflet, ever and one of the very best Conservative leaflets, ever. Now as a special pre-Christmas treat, it’s time for probably the best election address, ever. I’ve only got the first four lines though, as you’ll see, that is probably enough.
Step forward Dennis Skinner and his effort for the 1979 general election, written entirely in verse:
The election is here again, nine years since my first try,
How strange that the issues haven’t changed by and by,
The Tory leader then was Ted Heath, who promised you less tax
Lower prices, and civil servants to be removed from your backs
The rest, alas, I do not have.
