Scrap De­ceit­ful Slo­gans

Costa del Sol News - - FRONT PAGE -

Of all the rub­bish that comes out of many a politician's mouth the mean­ing­less po­lit­i­cal slo­gans and empty sound­bites that say ab­so­lutely noth­ing are among the most grat­ing. Po­lit­i­cal dis­course hardly gets off the ground when par­ties start talk­ing inane guff about "go­ing for­ward not back­ward" be­ing "strong and sta­ble" and of­fer­ing "lad­ders of op­por­tu­nity". In­ter­views and speeches are of­ten empty of sub­stance, just col­lec­tions of sen­tences dreamt up by fo­cus groups and spin doc­tors. So the Brit Scene wel­comes Sir John Ma­jor's re­cent broad­side at to­day's politi­cians for their use of "puerile" slo­gans.
