Manifesto Intros Part 6: Green Party

2015 UK Election special, Green Party manifesto front page edition.

Well this is direct.


Translation: Yes, we have policies. Real ones. Look!

Then a weird thing happens.

2015 General Election Manifesto

(Soft piano intro starts up in the background…)

Imagine a political system that puts the public first. Imagine an economy that gives everyone their fair share.

Sound familiar yet?

Imagine a society capable of supporting everyone’s needs. Imagine a planet protected from the threat of climate change now and for the generations to come.

Imagine there’s no heaven. It’s easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky. Imagine all the people, living for today. Yoo-hooooo.

That’s the future we want to create and we believe we have the means to do it. Green Party membership is soaring as more and more people are recognising that the politics of the future doesn’t have to look like the politics of the past.

You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one.

Vote Green and you can help us build a society that works for the Common Good.

I hope someday you will join us. And the world will live as one.

Green out.

Summary: I have no idea why the Green manifesto opener appears to be John Lennon lyrics (actually verse 3 onwards) recast as campaign platitudes. It’s too close for it to be a coincidence, but I doubt it’s deliberate. Probably subconscious influences bubbling over.
