This week is all about manifesto launches in th UK as the 2010 UK election campaigning starts to ramp up. Today, the official opposition and bookies favourites to win the election, the Conservative Party, launched their manifesto 'Invitation to join the government of Britain'. I'm not sure how literally you should take that invite.
Anyway, here is the word cloud...
This is taken from their section, 'Promote our national interest'.
I don't think that we should be surprised that Conservative, security, national and government appear large. There isn't the prominence of buzz words that we saw in the Labour cloud yesterday.
Interestingly, the word aid appears larger in this document than in Labour's. However, both parties are commited to, and will legislate for keeping the 0.7% GDP aid commitment. Which is fantastic news as Britain should (no counting chickens here) keep to this historic commitment. Maybe the Tories felt the need to stress this more as this historically is seen as Labour territory.
Small words included climate, people, poverty and developing.....bit of a worry that!
As was pointed out on my last blog, the word gender doesn't make the cloud of either main parties - and neither does the MDGs.
Let me know your thoughts.
