2nd Labour Freepost in Norwich North



Labour's second Freepost leaflet is doing the rounds. This is their 4th leaflet in total, but only two of those have actually been delivered by hand (with only one going out in Taverham).

This leaflet is, quite astonishingly, only A5 in size. Have Labour got that little to say that they are now shrinking the szie of their leaflet ?

I think it's more a case of Labour not having the funds to print in A5, seeing as their corporate and personal membership is drying up.

It's a very neat leaflet. Just in terms of craftsmanship, it works very well. Including the A5 size. Respect to whoever designed this one.

I agree Matthew,about layout and design but not on delivery. A wasted opportunity using the freepost to get it out. I think it proves Letters from A Tory's point.

It's a good leaflet. The thing that struck me was the lack of a surname but then I can understand the reasons why!!!!

I don't understand your emphasis on leaflets and posters. I always bin the former, and look at the posters and wonder about the person who put them up.

But the leaflet it tiny and is a wasted opportunity. It also makes the Labour party look small fry and unable to sell its message.

In simple terms, it has failed to impress people I know, and many of them voted in the past for Ian Gibson.

None of the above said...

Why the fuck would a leaflet change the way you vote - or even 'impress' you?

Do we not know ourselves anymore?

Concentrating on things that exercise people might generate more interest and give an air of relevancy to the whole farago. And you might get more than ZERO people turning up for the hustings (giving it a more modern / sensible name might help too). Unemployment is extremely high currently yet I haven't heard it mentioned etc.

The leaflet is tiny because it's meant to appeal to people who'll just glance at it before throwing it away. People just aren't going to read lots of text, especially from Labour. Labour voters are going to need some sort of reassurance to keep them voting Labour, not a long policy-filled plea. So just mention a couple of family oriented policies, that's enough. Big picture of happy smiling nice young white married couple and baby - the message they're trying to get across here is obvious, isn't it - "Labour is for people like you". Labour WANT to look like homely small fry, not remote professionals, which is why we have those family friendly words from the young couple. The pose of the woman in the photo reminds me of the pictures of students they often put in the science pages of university prospectuses, I am trying to be very delicate here, but they knew what they were doing, I'm sure.

Do either the Tories or the Libs realise that Labour have been knocking on more doors than any other party? The Tories now look like there are too slick - I'm suprise they aren't worried about this, the standards of leaflets just stinks of 'we're getting help from London' - the libs on the other hand are going for the 'we can deliver more leaflets strategy', this only works if you can beat Labour on the doors, something I very much doubt as from what I've heard Labour have a mass of data gathered at the expense of delivering so many leaflets - it pisses off your core vote people!. The greens, my side, have too few people on the stump, but NN was never our target. I think we can take the Libs to the wire though, we seem to be taking a lot of switch from the LDs which is shocking a few of us, it's be close between the yellow and green for 3rd on the night.

Another religious nut trying to get into power in New Labour's Puritan crusade.

I like how he used to be a Conservative while he was at university too. He said he tried it, but he didn't like it. We all have to experiment, I suppose...

I find it funny Chris Ostrowski was a Conservative during deep oppostion and now is Labour when they are on the brink of complete melt down.
