“A Straight Choice” in Dunfermline

According to the Dunfermline and West Fife Lib Dems’ web site, the “by-election will be a straight choice between Tony Blair’s representative and Willie Rennie.”

Nick Assinder says that a leaflet with the same phrase is also being distributed by the Lib Dem by-election campaign. Lib Dems claim it is an innocent coincidence.

    Well it is a straight choice between Willie Rennie and Blair’s candidate.

    What’s the problem with saying so.

    It would be a bit queer if we stopped using perfectly normal english just because some bbc journalist is ignorant.

    As I pointed our in an earlier blog today, it is just a standard squeeze message. But for some reason it brought a wry smile to my face. And it would be very…er.. odd if we stopped using it.

    As the Lib dems are reprising the “Straight choice” leaflet will the “only candidate from a stable family background” also make a come back…….
