A good political slogan?

By George - 23 July 2008 29

A friend of mine, John Barilaro, is running for Queanbeyan City Council and has come up with the following political slogan:-
 
‘No slogan! Just hard work for our community’
 
I thought that was a ripper.
 
I have suggested to Gary Kent, a candidate for Molonglo, who stands at 160cm, that his slogan should be:-
 
‘Gary Kent – Standing tall for Canberra’
 
He is a little hesitant.
 
So with the ACT Election just around the corner what are some other good political slogans for our pollies.
 
Or what slogan would best suit some of the candidates running?

UPDATED: I think we have a new contender in “Vote for me, I’m Guilia with a G”

What’s Your opinion?

How about “Keeping the Bastards Honest”? The Dems aren’t using it, maybe someone else could.

Bogans don’t need slogans.

Is greener better?

How about for Frank Pangallo – “The Grass is always Greener in Canberra”. And I am not talking about Griffith, NSW grown ‘grass’….or am I?

zed:’please vote for me, I have nice manners.’

Norvan Vogt had “Vote Vogt” for the Democrats in the federal election.
Would be great to see that slogan re-used for the ACT election.
Recycling in action!

Matthew Watts in Ginninderra is running with “Watts the right choice!”

It was market-tested in the Pot Belly.

Let’s hope the shameless drunks can read the voting forms. If they don’t piss on them, of course.

Jakez, I was under the impression that Helen Cross never got elected in her own right but came in after a countback following a retirement (First Carnell, then Humphries).

That was Jacqui Burke.

“It’s your choice, a new hope or Stanhope”

She ran it the election before that and got in so…

Gary Kent has to go with that slogan, it’s too fantastic not to.

LG 4:35 pm 23 Jul 08

Just.. “Vote Z”

I thought Helen Cross’ slogan last election was pretty corny…. “Not a tick, not a cross, vote 1 for Helen Cross” or something to that effect.

You are of course aware that a slogan saying “No Slogan” is a slogan.
