in the run-up to the election

As Charlie Brooker reminded me last night, it is less than 100 days till the election. But, we're not yet in Purdah, so now is the perfect time for some Friday morning fantasy electioneering. Because last night (admittedly in a montage) I saw quite a few party slogans and I can't remember a single one of them.

Help me LJ. Write me a political slogan I can really get behind. You've got two positives and two negatives, but feel free to subvert expectation (like you always do).

Poll #1998201 That gets my vote!

Things can only get....

Let's make Britain...

... isn't working

... new danger

My approach to election coverage will be:

Grab the popcorn and open a book on who gets into a fistfight
4(12.5%)
Catch up on all the best gaffes on Youtube the next day
3(9.4%)
Wearily sigh as yet another shiny-faced Etonian pontificates over my supper
10(31.2%)
Catch up on the important news via my preferred satirist
7(21.9%)
Turn up the bass and ignore; I know who I'll be voting for anyway
5(15.6%)
Same as I do for all mainstream media - ignore!
1(3.1%)
This tiny box is too constraining - I will explain below
1(3.1%)
Aim to be a vox pop at least once
1(3.1%)

I will be voting in the election

In a state of barely-suppressed excitement, and watching the all-night coverage on the BBC!
1(3.4%)
Just before my shift as a polling station volunteer
1(3.4%)
In a hurry, on the way to school/work/etc.
6(20.7%)
While holding my nose
4(13.8%)
In a state of weary indignation
9(31.0%)
With my feet
1(3.4%)
With a little dance
0(0.0%)
Late
1(3.4%)
Early
5(17.2%)
Air-punch in the booth, high-five on the way out
1(3.4%)

I will be spending the immediate pre-election period

In purdah
2(7.4%)
In bed
3(11.1%)
Out of the country
2(7.4%)
Out in the countryside, stockpiling
1(3.7%)
Dodging the news
3(11.1%)
Speculating wildly around the kettle at work
4(14.8%)
Campaigning
2(7.4%)
Doing what I normally do at that time of year, TBH
9(33.3%)
I'll need to explain in the comments
1(3.7%)


Rants, disputations with the state of my questions, speculations on the nature of modern democracy and suitable pictures -- please take them to the comments!
