03:20 pm - ooh you are awful - but I like you
There was a discussion on Radio 5 this morning about using comedy catch phrases as political slogans. For example 'Britain - It's good but it's not right' or a picture of your enemy (whoever that might be) with the caption 'Stupid Boy'. You can see it can't you, admit it.



How about a sticker saying 'What do you think of it so far? Rubbish!' or 'I don't believe it!' that you could put on your enemy's posters and manifesto.

Got any more? I posted a list of catch-phrases here recently

- so many of them are strangely appropriate. 'I have a cunning plan...'

Isn't Labour's campaign slogan 'Don't mention the war'?

And for the Lib Dems 'What are the chances?'

(yes, a lightening rebuttal there at only three and half hours to think of a witty retort)

The only comedy catch phrases I can immediately think of that apply are from Derek and Clive, and they aren't repeatable in polite company.

(retires from lists fondly imagining the party leaders engaged in a Derek and Clive style abuse session.. "Who are you calling xxxx, xxxx?" "You xxxxxxx stupid xxxxsss xxxx". Ah, intelligent debate is not gone)
