Why don’t the ‘Leave’ bunch post this sort of message?


If there is cash to be spent, plaster the billboards with messages like this, and see how the polls get interested in ‘Leaving’!

If you agree, or even if you disagree; instead of a pile of garbled statistics, there is an idea upon which to fix upon!

    As an ardent LEAVE supporter, I must say that I am not impressed with the efforts of the campaign leaders. I don’t see any convincing messages – only a few rebuttals of the IN campaigners. I would have expected more words from Nigel Farage – perhaps he is saying things but they are not being reported; who knows?

      A few thoughts,

      Among the leave campaign, there is no cohesion – just lots of nebulous postulation. Most of them, haven’t a clue as to what to do with the prize in the unlikely/likely event of the leave campaign being victorious, that’s not good.

      I’m not so sure that some leavers (ie Boris) actually, truly, honestly desire to leave the bosom of the Brussels Hydra.
      Additionally, it was always going to be a dirty, filthy episode, the EU has placed its extremist left wing agitators in all the offices of the various strands, in buildings of, the leave campaign HQs. Oh yes, subterfuge and dirty tricks are the order of Brussels – the extreme left reserve for the leave campaigners a special misanthropic venom, only swivel eyed Bolsheviks (the likes of Jack Strawman, Handelscrote, Kinnochio and his sprog, Ken Clarke, Tarzan) can spit.

      We’re also going up against the Wahhabists and they don’t care for Britain biting the hand that only gives and gives and more and more.

      Some of them don’t get it!

      I really do believe that, for both sides not only is this a titanic struggle, it is an existential struggle. I really do worry that some leave campaigners think, “well, on balance…….. even if we lose – it’ll still be OK” ……………and to these I shout – er NO it fekkin won’t.

      Imho, I think Mike has makes a salient point, sometimes images count for more, settle in the subconscious – sending down messages ingrained to girding the loins.

      Leavers, fully need to comprehend – just what it is that they go up against, they are a set of duplicitous bastards and will stop at nothing to get their way – there’s no Marquis of Queensbury rules in this fight, this is a duel to the death.

    The problem for the Leave campaign is that they cannot define exactly what their new world order will look like, which provides the Remain campaign with the ‘factual argument’ high-ground.
    Michael Gove made a reasonable fist of presenting the ‘patriotic regeneration’ position but he did it in long, convoluted, almost intellectual sentences which are now, regrettably, beyond the absorption-level of most current voters.
    I agree that the Leave campaign would be better sticking to simple images with simple messages – remember ‘Labour isn’t working’, that simple slogan and image delivered votes by the truck-load – Vote Leave needs a strategy of that type, keep it simple, keep it visual, keep it snappy. Then the voters can only get bored with the creative stat-fest from Remain.

    I agree with the general thrust of this & Mudplugger’s ” keep it simple, keep it visual, keep it snappy”
    To be fair to Vote Leave they have produced an excellent fold-out leaflet which is attractive and gives 5 positive reasons to vote leave etc, and it is going out in huge numbers. But the “visual” appeal a la Titanic is missing and has great potential.
    Some activists strongly suspect that there are still masses of people who are unaware that we pay the EU £350 million EVERY WEEK.
    What a potential bombshell this would be on huge billboards over the country, with just a single comment “enough to build a modern hospital every week of the year”
    (as in the leaflet). That would bring a sharp reminder that such a sum is desperately needed by our cash strapped NHS – a subject dear to the hearts of most people.

    Similarly why are the wealthy patron “leavers” not putting some ads in national and
    local papers along the same lines?
    This is a one off vital opportunity for some visionary and imaginative initiatives as our posters suggest. Blogs and web sites are no substitute for these.

    Yes, this needs to be put about. Shall get onto it at our end and shall approach UKIP and BOO on this. Also Leave. You can write to them too.
