Election Update

If you’ve read my previous post about the elections then you know I’m not too keen on the Conservative Party well I was watching ‘Have I Got News For You’ last week and an interesting fact arose.
Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye, said that the Tories slogan ‘Are you thinking what we’re thinking?’ was infact an adaptation of the slogan used by French fascist and founder of the National Front Jean-Marie Le Pen in his 1988 Presidency campaign.

“Notre programme est-ce que vous pensez” – “Our programme is what you are thinking”
Jean Marie Le Pen, National Front Party, 1988 Election
(Private Eye, 15th April 2005)

very interesting…
