Julia Webb – Electioneering

Electioneering

Do you know who you will vote for in the election?
We want to hear your feedback and opinions.
Can we put our board in your front garden?

We know your views are probably already hardened,
and voters aren’t keen on changing their direction.
Do you know who you will vote for in the election?

We’ve come today to ask if you’ve any questions,
although our candidate could not be here, just his minions,
can we put our board in your front garden?

Do you think you might take time for some reflection?
Our parliamentary candidate really knows his onions.
Do you know who you will vote for in the election?

You know the current governments an infection,
they only care about people earning millions.
Can we put our board in your front garden?

We hope that we have made a real connection
and that you will increase our party’s chance of winning,
Do you know who you will vote for in the election?
Can we put our board in your front garden?
