    Maybe the press aren't reading Martin, but maybe others are?



    PS: I am also not the only poster, who feels that excluding contact with the Scottish Parliament, Welsh and Northern Ireland Assemblies, and through them, other parties, is a mistake.
    If many little people, in many little places, do many little things,
    they can change the face of the world.

    - African proverb -
  • all news coverage stinks now, so its no surprise to see the manifesto being shunted.

    if it doesnt make your eyes bleed watching the news on any channel these days, at least watch charlie brookers newswipe to see how grotesque its become and so you don't have to!

    though the sheer success of this site gives plenty of momentum to the manifesto in the face of all that indifference.
  • Having read the 50 words I cannot see why the party leaders find it too difficult. However, worse still as you mention, is the way that the media ignore news that could improve our daily life. Will you please be kind and send it to Lord Pearson of Rannoch at the House of Lords, and see if he reads it please. He is the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party. As the UK pours several thousands of pounds per person per year down the Brussels drain, and a UKIP government would stop the drain, save £Billions, and save jobs, they may well be targeting Moneysavers in due course. As so many of us are fed up with the arrogance of many of our current 'political class' politicians, and UKIP pushed Labour into third place in the European elections last year, a UKIP landslide is even a possibility. However - the media avoid mentioning UKIP like the plague just like your 50 words. They don't get it, do they?:idea:
