Thought Vomit #124: ft. The Manifesto

Labour has launched its manifesto in the form of a YouTube cartoon.

There’s a nice subliminal message in there too. Apparently, some of us are just morons with a megaphone. Nice.

Since I’m standing for election to this blog, hoping to secure an historic second term, here are a few nuggets from my own manifesto.

On the Digital Economy:

“I aim to negotiate processes and systems that aren’t working and negotiate them so you get the social networks you deserve.”

On Foreign Policy:

“I ask you to morph and understand one key thing: What we are being asked to do – execute swiftly on our emerging relationships – has not changed.”

On the NHS:

“The organisational changes I am making will help us grow a culture of prosperous customer focus.”

On Overseas Development:

“I will capitalise global P&L responsibility as well as business and e-service strategy.”

And finally on Parliamentary Reform:

“We now have a structure and a compelling start to benchmark the leadership portals.”

With thanks to the Coporate Bullshit Generator.

But most importantly of all, I’ve been working hard on my election slogan. I think it embodies everything I stand for, and everything I hope to achieve, along with a fair and accurate representation of the mandate I am asking you to support.

“We’re going to iterate processes and systems that aren’t working and iterate them so you get the deliverable you need.”
