I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on Jo Swinson this week. The disturbing trend of resorting to violence in the wake of political disagreement has no place in a functioning democracy. We all must remind ourselves that even though we may disagree with our political counterparts, they, just like us, have the best interests of Britain at heart

August 23rd
-Canvass in Southampton.
-Canvass in Bath.
Canvass in Bristol.

August 24th
-Canvass in Portsmouth.
-Canvass in Brighton.
-Speech in Hasting.

It is important to remember ladies and gentlemen, that this is an election not just about Brexit. The flagrantly irresponsible fiscal proclamations by the Liberal Democratic Leader prove that. She would on a whim nearly double the NHS budget and triple the education budget. How does she propose we pay for this without bankrupting ourselves? Fiscal sanity is an issue which must not be forgotten over the din of Brexit.

August 25th
-Canvassing in Norwich.
-Canvassing in Ipswich.
-Canvassing in Cambridge.

August 26th
-Prime Ministerial Duties

August 27th
-Canvassing in Birmingham.
-Canvassing in Derby.
-Canvassing in Nottingham.

August 28th
-Canvassing in Barrow-In-Furness.
-Canvassing in Workington.
-Speech in Carlisle.
Quote
Labour continues to beat the drum about a second referendum, so I have but one question for Mr. Darling. What happens if your promised second referendum takes place and the country again votes to leave the European Union? Shall we have a third? A fourth? No. We must carry out the will of the people now, agree or not. More is at stake than just Brexit. Public trust in our democratic institutions depends on us respecting a democratic referendum.

Strategy: This week, Conservative Strategy will continue much as it has in the past weeks. Efforts to persuade Brexit supporting non-Conservatives will continue apace in Northern England and with a continued slump by the Brexit Party, Brexiteer surrogates will keep focusing on the issue in a bid to rally further support behind the Conservatives.

In Southern England, while Rees-Mogg and Liam Fox will continue their campaigning, more moderate members of the party will also take up efforts to shore up support after the ChUK surge, particularly in the Southwest. In concert with this, and with the flagging Liberal Democratic Campaign in the region, efforts will be made not win over these voters, particularly with a focus on the fiscal irresponsibility of Jo Swinson’s pledges for both the NHS and education budgets.

Infrastructure: Campaign infrastructure will be maintained in Northern and Southern England. Expansion of GOTV and Persuasion capabilities will be limited to Wales and the city of London, where the vacuum left by declining Plaid and Lib Dem numbers respectively will be utilized to expand the smaller Conservtive base of support in the regions.

Sinn Féin
Schedule for 22–28 August


_______________________

Campaign:
22–23 August     Campaigning across County Antrim, McDonald calls on Unionist leaders to put the interests of the North ahead of their own reelection and engage in talks to restore the Stormont Executive. Direct rule by Westminster has silenced Republican and Remain voices at the very moment when the future of Ireland is being decided. This is no accident: the Unionist parties and their Tory allies have deliberately obstructed negotiations in order to continue to govern without reference to the will of the people. While the opposition remains divided, Northern Ireland may be easily ignored: only a strong vote for Sinn Féin will break through Unionist stonewalling and force Westminster to respect the Good Friday Agreement and reinstate home rule.

24–25   In Londonderry and Tyrone, McDonald hammers home the importance of a united Republican vote on election day. In collusion with the Tory government in Westminster, the Unionists have cut Republican and Remain voters out of the conversation by refusing to restore the Stormont Executive. If the opposition are divided, they are easily ignored, and the Coalition can continue to suppress popular expression without consequences. Only a strong vote for Sinn Féin can break through the stonewalling of the DUP and UUP by forcing them to confront a large, motivated, and united opposition bloc. A vote for "ChUK" only enables this obstructionism by rewarding hardline Thatcherite Anna Soubry for her role in propping up the Tory-DUP "coalition of chaos" for seven years as the right hand to Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom. Sinn Féin is the only party with a real plan to prevent a hard border across Ireland and ensure continued access to the Single Market and Customs Union.

26 August     Canvassing in Fermanagh, McDonald reiterate's Sinn Féin's plan to preserve access to the Single Market and Customs Union. Northern Ireland voted by a majority to remain in the European Union in 2016, and for good reason: the reimposition of a hard border across Ireland would be disastrous to local economies and shatter the peace that has prevailed since the Good Friday Agreement. With the Unionists having betrayed home rule for a seat in Westminster, Sinn Féin remains the only party committed to preserving that peace. By establishing special status for Northern Ireland as part of any Brexit deal, continued free movement between Northern and Southern Ireland will be assured. EU officials have repeatedly shown themselves willing to make accommodations for Ireland's unique circumstances: it is up to Westminster to cease grandstanding and put the interests of ordinary people ahead of their selfish agenda. While the opposition remains divided, however, it is easy to ignore Northern Ireland: only a strong vote for Sinn Féin will force Westminster to heed the voice of the people and include special status for the North in the final deal with the EU.

27–28     Back in Tyrone, McDonald emphasizes Sinn Féin's commitment to the working class in her conversations with supporters, party organizers, and undecided voters. The result of a Tory-led Brexit would be disastrous for Northern Ireland, eliminating countless jobs that depend on free movement across Ireland. Yet even disregarding Brexit, the record of the Unionist-backed government (in which Anna Soubry proudly participated) on workers' rights is simply abysmal. Time and again, the Tory-Unionist "Coalition of Chaos" voted to slash regulations, gut public services, and leave the most vulnerable in society to fend for themselves while the wealth feast on the public dole. Sinn Féin is the only party that can reverse these trends and force Westminster to heed the voice of the people: a strong mandate is therefore essential to preserve vital public services and forestall disastrous trade policies proposed in the government's draft deal with the EU.

      Change UK:
      Time for Change in Britain!

      1
      ______________________________________________________________

      Week 4:
      MP Targeting

      In General: Having finally began to surpass the Liberal Democrat vote, the Change UK strategy believes the time is right both to fully push the Lib Dems into fourth or fifth vote whilst restoring to "MP targeting", focusing on areas which are believed to have significant electoral rewards and which could well reinforce the party's return to the Commons with dozens of new gains, making Change UK decisive for the formation of any government (a narrative which will be pushed to reinforce the manifesto commitments, the unequivocal second referendum pledge and a sense that Change UK CAN deliver).

      Concepts: Having built a series of concept in the past few weeks, Change UK will continue to wield criticisms of the Conservatives and the pro-Brexit forces as the incompetent Coalition of Chaos - to enforce a belief that David Cameron simply can't deliver - and enforce a positive message of "responsible leadership" which not only aims to offer a solution to voters fed up with politics and wanting a government that will take charge, but offer a contrast that reinforces the criticisms of Mrs. Swinson as unprepared and of Mr. Darling as trying to pivot too much.

      Northern Ireland: In the region the Sinn Fein strategy will be countered by a relentless promotion of the Change UK taking stands against a Hard Brexit or No Deal Brexit, noting that due to their abstentionism Sinn Fein is missing from the House of Commons when we need Remainer MP's the most. It will be argued by the local branch of the party that, regardless of the merits of their abstentionism, voting for Sinn Fein will ensure Brexiteer MP's get to represent Northern Ireland as the Remainer voice goes silent, Change UK being the one true Remainer alternative which will actively fight for Northern Ireland.

      Strategy: This week's campaign recognizes the need both to go on the offensive on important fronts as well as the importance of defending seats and preventing losses: as a result, the campaign will go on the offensive by reinforcing the party's efforts in the East Midlands, in London, the South East and the South West; and it will also reinforce their efforts across Wales and Scotland is recognition of recent polling losses. To this Change UK will add a renewed focus on online messaging and recruitment, seeking to bring canvassing volunteers on board to combat the machines of the larger parties while hoping to be the party with the most presence, content and posts online.

      Campaign:

      General:The strategy of media exposure continues, allowing national reporters to follow the campaign closely while being as open as possible with regional media, all to ensure the party remains a protagonist of media messaging instead of being left behind. MP's and candidates will make sure to promote the need for unity and a strong government, but will raise constant questions on Darling's record, Cameron's Brexit plan and Swinson's stance on Brexit and the House of Lords.

      August 22nd, EAST MIDLANDS: Focus on fighting Labour and the Conservatives, outlining both Darling's record as Chancellor and under New Labor (warning the country can't afford another recession) as well as Cameron's own lack of a vision and a Brexit Plan (which the country would pay the price of). Emphasis on the economic message of Change UK and the Social Market as the solution to help deprived areas while being fiscally responsible.

      August 23rd, SOUTH WEST: A return into the region to continue the offensive on the Lib Dems, outlining the issue of Lords Reform and the unfocused Lib Dem campaign as a sign they're not ready for government. Follow up with attacks on the Conservative association with the BFP, hoping to drive more liberal voters away from Cameron. Emphasis on the more liberal aspects of the Change UK platform, the opposition to Brexit and the stances on security.

      August 24th and 25th, SOUTH EAST: Start of a two-day offensive to bolster support for Change UK in the decisive South East, seek to find and recruit new volunteers to ensure the region is well targeted. Despite some criticism of Labour (Economy) and the Lib Dems (Leadership), emphasis will be put on Cameron and the Conservatives, noting a Tory swing to the right and their increasing association with an economically damaging hard-Brexit. Outline positives stance on Brexit, on crime and security, and on expanding transport capabilities.

      August 26th, SCOTLAND: A return to Scotland to recover lost ground. At every stop harshly condemn the attack on Jo Swinson, describe it as a result of the climate generated by political extremes. Focus criticisms on the Union and Brexit via the Lib Dem regional Brexit (which would break the union) and the SNP's obsession with Independence and their economic record, outlining instances of the SNP underfunding public services. Positive emphasis on Remain, Unionism and a strong and inclusive economy.

      August 27th, WALES: A defensive drive to also recover lost ground, focusing mostly on the still strong Lib Dem base on account of Lords Reform, Regional Brexit and Leadership, while also offering standard criticisms of Labour and the Conservatives on the economy and crime front. Particularly emphasize the plans for a Federal Britain and of empowering Wales as a result, as well as protecting the region from the economy harm of a hard-Brexit or no-Deal Brexit.

      August 28th, LONDON: Close on another tour of London, particularly the most Remain areas to build on further positive sentiment. The two themes are Lords Reform and Brexit: Lords Reform by going after the three main parties on opposing or equivocating on reforming the House of Lords and renewing old politics, and Brexit by noting the need for a 100% Remain party to lead the cause in favor of remaining on the EU. Hit Labour on refusing to campaign on the Brexit issue on several regions, presenting it as a pivot instead of the necessary support for Remain.

      Labour: Together with Pride

      Usercreated

      21 August
      Alistar Darling kicks off the Labour campaign in Glasgow, giving a speech with other prominent members of Scottish Labour.


      Usercreated



      Darling went to an abandoned industrial park in outer Glasgow and delivered a speech on the failures of the Conservative Government on Britain and with the benefits of a Labour government.

      Quote

      A Britain with a Labour government is one where we see this park working again. A Britain with a Labour Government is one where we bring people up so they don’t have to live on food banks. A Conservative Government has lost Britain these jobs and made many Britains turn to the food banks to make ends meet. With a Labour Government, we will take the fight to poverty and not turn our backs on those of our people so much in need. How do we claim to be strong as a nation, when our immediate moral fibre is weak, we are as strong as our weakest link, and what have the Conservatives done to strengthen the position of these impoverished peoples? More people than ever rely on food banks.

      Last year the UN published a report concluding that the Conservative Government had committed Grave, systematic violations of the rights of persons with disabilities. Currently, 4.2 million people with disabilities live in poverty in Britain, and the disability pay gap remains stubbornly high. As a government Labour will fight back against the joblessness, homelessness, and food insecurity that plagues our nation. We need to put money in the hands of the consumers, so we can help our small businesses keep working for Britain.

      Labour will continue to put money in the hands of hardworking people in Scotland, Wales, England, and Northern Ireland. Because we work, for the people of this nation. If you elect us your government expect a stronger Britain, and a Britain that stays in the EU, and a Britain that stays whole. We need to focus on fighting against the like of Nigel Farage and Paul Nuttall who try to tear our nation apart and tear the European community apart. Not as Scotsman, but as a Britain I say, Stronger Together.


      Alistair Darling takes a train to Edinburgh, where he comments on his plans for public transport and then holds a surgery with MP's Ian Murray the Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, and Paul Sweeney the Shadow Minister for Scotland in Edinburgh.


      To end the day, Darling takes the train south to the region of northeast England.

      Scotland Campaign Constants
      Focus on attracting Younger Voters in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and other cities in Scotland
      Use Grassroots Labour support to pass advertisments on the ground, focus on densley populated areas
      Capitalize on the unpopularity of the Conservative government in Scotland (Remain voters) by painting Labour as the only real alternative to a Conservative Government.
      Emphasize the Scottish background of Alistair Darling, "The Scottish Choice".

      22 August

      Alistair Darling holds a town hall in Durham focusing on making a more equal and fair Britain, and a holding a Labour volunteer drive.  

      Darling then went to a town hall event where he discussed his plan to put money in the hands of the workers in this region, and across the nation.

      Speak to Northeast England Young Labour in Durham on the importance of fixing the United Kingdom's Education system.

      Quote
      Education is a crucial issue here in the Northeast, and across Britain. As Prime Minister and as leader of a Labour Government, we promise to make sure all of our nations primary and secondary school teachers have a masters degree because we want the British youth to be taught by the best and brightest. We will also be making it easier to achieve a University education, and raising the pay of our teachers.

      That is why, as a nation, we need to continue to be on the forefront of education and the values we stand for. Following the General Election, I would like to form a government to fix Britain's schools, because as we saw with the death of Councillor Carson violence, comes from those who know, no better. We need to end violence in the United Kingdon, and having a better-educated populace is one way we can do that.  

      I look back on my friend Jo Cox murdered before the Referendum a few years ago, and the man who killed was a man like any other in Britain, but he couldn't settle a debate with words he settled it with violence. I look back on her, and I think we need to make sure that never happens again. That is why a strong independent Britain needs strong independent schooling. Labour is the Teacher's choice, the Progressive Choice, and the British Choice. Thank you all.  


      Following the speech to young Labour, Darling appeared with Sharon Hodgson and Laura Pidcock to promote Labour's strong record on women's issues and Labour issues at a surgery.

      To end the day give a train stop speech to supporters in Newcastle Upon Tyne on the state of British public transit. Promising a Labour Government will end 9 years of Conservative Government mismanagement and destruction by the Conservatives.

      Following the speech, he takes the train to London to prepare for the Labour Manifesto launch.

      Northeastern Campaign Constants
      Focus on attracting Younger Voters and Working-class voters in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Durham, Darlington, Washington, Sunderland and other cities in the Region
      Use Grassroots Labour support to spread the primary campaign messages of the region, Labour is the party of Healthcare, Trade Unions, and Education. Do NOT campaign on Brexit
      Use Labour's traditional strength in the area to press the advantage, attack the Conservatives on their inaction in the area while it has been losing good paying jobs, and blast the Liberal Democrats for abandoning a generation of Britain's.  
      Local MPs campaign in their home areas, with MP Paul Williams reaching out to younger voters primarily, and MP Chi Onwurah reaching out to the minority communities of these cities.



      23 August

      Continue the swing through the northeast of England with a constituency surgery with MPs Ian Mearns and Andy McDonald.

      Speak to a group of Seniors at a state-run home, promising a Labour government will do more to help those in need and increase funding for senior homes.

      Meet with Labour activists, encouraging them to get out and help defeat the tory/Liberal Democrats to bring real progressive change to the United Kingdom.

      In Durham, attack the Liberal Democrat and CHUK Brexit policies as broken and not doing enough to help everyday Britain who voted for Brexit because they were afraid,  promise that Labour government will make Britain whole again and not fight over issues.



      24 August

      Speak to Trade Unionists encouraging them to reject the false call of nationalism and to fight for better workers rights.

      Quote

Our goal is that every Briton can receive a high school diploma and we will work to ensure that every Briton has the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree, regardless of how far they are from a university or how poor they are.

      We will make Britain’s tax system, truly progressive. The fact that people who make £150,000 only pay 45% in taxes is ridiculous. What’s even more insane is that, that is the final tax bracket. Even millionaires pay that 45%. Under our proposal those making over £500,000 would pay 90% in taxes. Those making over £150,000 will pay 70% and those making over £285,000 would pay a tax of 80%. We will raise taxes on the wealthiest Britons to pay for our agenda.

      August 29: Campaigning in East Midlands on delivering Brexit

      August 30th: Campaigning in E. of England on Properly Funding Police for Security

      When we're sending so much money overseas and spending only half of that at home on protecting our citizens, you have to wonder what the hell we're thinking! What have these politicians done to think that foreign aid is more important than saving British lives? How many more Manchesters? How many more terrorist attacks will it take for the government to wake up? If you vote BFP, we'll make sure that our police are properly funded and our citizens safe before thinking about sending a dime overseas!

      August 31: Campaign on revitalizing small business in S.W England

      September 1st: Campaigning in S.E England on helping fix the housing crisis

      Conservative Schedule: August 29th-September 4th


      August 29th:
      -Canvassing in Sheffield.
      -Canvassing in Nottingham.
      -Speech in Leicester.
      Quote
      : If I have said it once I have said it a hundred times. This election is about more than just the next five years, but the next fifty. If Britain fails in this moment to secure an equitable deal to leave the European Union, one which will not disrupt trade and will not plunge Northern Ireland back into chaos, then faith in our democratic institutions may be shattered beyond hope. The Conservative party quite frankly is the only party which can accomplish this monumental task.

      August 30th:
      -Canvassing in Peterborough.
      -Canvassing in Cambridge.
      -Canvassing in Chelmsford.

      August 31st:
      -Canvassing in Hillingdon.
      -Canvassing in Sutton
      -Canvassing in Canvassing in Havering.
      -Speech in Havering.
      Quote
      The pundits constantly talk about London is the heart of the Remain movement in the United Kingdom. Yet fully 1.5 million people in Greater London voted with their counterparts in Sunderland and in Birmingham and in Sheffield to leave the European Union. London too stands to lose the most from a No Deal or a Bad Deal Brexit. My opponents would rather abandon the Brexit process arguing that it is “too difficult.” To them I say this. It is time we meet our challenges head on and not simply retreat at the first sign of adversity. Now who’s with me?

      September 1st:
      -Canvassing in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
      -Canvassing in Sunderland.
      -Speech in Durham.
      Quote
      Well it looks like we finally have the remainers on the run up here. Now let's finish the job and send a message at the ballot box next week: the will of the people can and will be respect by your next Prime Minister!

      September 2nd:
      -Canvassing in Barnstaple.
      -Canvassing in Bridgewater.
      -Canvassing in Exeter.

      September 3rd:
      -Canvassing in Stoke-on-Trent.
      -Canvassing in Stockport.
      -Canvassing in Manchester.

      September 4th:
      -Canvassing in Dundee.
      -Canvassing in Glasgow.
      -Speech in Edinburgh.
      Quote
      Fundamentally it is a matter of trust. Who do you want governing this country for the next five years? Ms. Swinson will tax you all to death. Labour seems to be engaging in the same kind of politics that got us into this mess under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, skirting any real answers on the most pressing issues of the day. A Conservative led ministry is the only sane choice for the next five years, and I am asking you to put your trust in me.

      Strategy: The Conservative strategy in the penultimate week will hinge on four major areas. On the one hand, efforts to prevent further defections to the Brexit Party in the East of England and in York and the Humber will be led first by the Prime Minister, who will focus heavily on Brexit in his speeches their and then by the Conservative team leaders in the region, especially David Davis and Julian Smith.

      The second point will focus on the South of England, deploying Conservative Leadership teams to paint the Liberal Democrats and Labour to a lesser extent as fiscally irresponsible and unable to properly lead a government. The campaign in this area will focus on the Southeast and Southwest of England's Conservative roots.

      The third point will be a renewed focus on London, particularly leave neighborhoods. Prime Minister Cameron will make a point to visit leave voting neighborhoods, and note the damage which a no deal Brexit would deal to London. In the Prime Minister’s absence, Boris Johnson will lead the charge in London.

      Finally, building on success in the north of England, the Prime Minister will head there before a swing through Scotland, again focusing on Brexit. Efforts to paint Labour and the Liberal Democrats as out of touch Remains will be the heavy focus of surrogates in the region.

      Infrastructure: Final offices will be opened in London, the Midlands, and the North. Efforts from the field team tasked with contacting voters will shift from persuasion into GOTV. Conservatives must be mobilized even in heavily Labour areas in London, the North of England, and Wales.

      Volunteers will employ pamphlets, talking points, Commit to Vote cards in an effort to improve the efficacy of their work.

      Scottish National Party: A voice for Scotland



      29th August:

      Nicola Sturgeon spends the whole day touring the Western Isles, knocking on doors and speaking to voters. She makes a speech about supporting the Scottish Gaelic language in Staoinebrig.
      Quote
      Staoinebrig is the most Gaelic speaking town in Scotland and I want to use this opportunity to talk about our plans to support the Gaelic language. Gaelic is an integral part of Scotland's heritage and the SNP recognizes how much of a loss it would be if the language continued to decline after years of neglect. It brings a huge cultural and social value to Scotland and it is a priority of the SNP to continue that. We want to keep increasing the use and visibility of the language to sustain Gaelic for the long term. Not only are there social benefits, but also economic benefits. It has been estimated that £148.5 million extra for the economy can be generated if more businesses offer services in Gaelic, of course, protecting a major part of our culture is more important than that. Since the SNP took office, the number of young people in Gaelic education has increased by 32%. We will continue to support Gaelic education for the benefit of the Scottish people.

      30th August:

      Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Broadford. She makes a short speech about rural infrastructure.
      Quote
      The SNP is trying to make a big difference to expand our infrastructure, to connect all corners of our country. Locally, we've invested £6 million to support the local tourist infrastructure for attractions on Skye such as Nest Point and the Fairy Pools. We've committed to expand super-fast broadband to all homes by 2021 and are investing £5 billion to Scotland's rail infrastructure.

      31st August:

      Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Fort William. She gives a speech about land reform.
      Quote
      The concentration of land ownership to a small group of landlords has long been one of the greatest injustices in Scotland. The Highland Clearances were one of the most shameful episodes in Scottish history. Communities torn apart by the greed of a small number of landlords. To come to terms with this past and to open up future prosperity, we have to seriously reform land ownership in Scotland. Only 1200 landowners, or 0.022% of Scotland's population, own two thirds of Scotland. That is a ridiculous level of wealth inequality. The SNP has laid out serious steps towards solving this problem in the Land Reform Act. The law created a Scottish Land Commission to look at the concentration of land and policies to cut inequality in land ownership. It added new protections for tenant farmers against eviction and introduced community right to buy, the right for communities to buy land at good rates. Our target is for 1 million acres of land to be under community ownership by 2020, so all Scots can share in the wealth of our country.

      Nicola Sturgeon travels to Manchester in the evening.

      1st September:

      Nicola Sturgeon spends the day in Manchester preparing for the debate. She tweets in response to Anna Soubry.
      Quote
      Anna Soubry has criticized under-funding of public services in Scotland. Public services are underfunded across the UK because of austerity, the SNP government is working hard to limit its effects in Scotland. I won't take lectures on austerity from a Tory.

      2nd September:

      Nicola Sturgeon takes part in the BBC debate in Manchester. She talks to reporters after.
      Quote
      I think I did a good job, I hope, sending the message that Scotland can do better than what Westminster is offering. We make a positive case for a progressive, independent Scotland inside the EU, and I believe it is gaining traction.

      3rd September:

      Nicola Sturgeon returns to Scotland. She knocks on doors and talks to voters in Ayr. She tweets.
      Quote
      I'm in Ayr today. We're investing £695 million in NHS Ayrshire, £120 million towards local schools and increased investment in childcare and early years education. The SNP is investing in all corners of Scotland.

      4th September:

      Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Irvine.

          Change UK:
          Time for Change in Britain!

          1
          ______________________________________________________________

          Week 5:
          Threshold Targeting

          In General: With the election drawing closer and recognizing the advantages the Conservatives and Labour continue to hold the Change UK strategy shifts into bolstering areas in which the party risks falling behind the threshold, MP-rich regions and London, considered the decisive battleground when it comes to overcoming larger parties. Change UK has also decided to go up against the Conservatives and Labour in terms of the messaging, hoping to benefit from being a new party by contrasting the record of the main parties and questioning whether Cameron or Darling are the best alternatives for PM.

          Concepts: At this point it is believed introducing radically new concepts into the race might yield more disadvantages than benefits - as it risks muddling the message -, resulting in Change UK retaining the concepts and attack lines (separating them nationally, regionally and locally) that appeared to have made the most damage or resulted in the biggest applause or support from the public. As a result there are only two new introductions based on earlier work during the campaign: the notion of a "Blind Brexit" being offered by Cameron - as it will be argued he gives no detail -, and of a "disastrous record" associated with Alistair Darling as Chancellor, invoking memories of the worst mistakes of the Brown government (while avoiding direct attacks on New Labour that might lead moderate votes back into the Labour camp).

          Northern Ireland: Judging the Northern Ireland special strategy as success in light of Change UK's rising polling numbers the party will take an additional gamble by sending Mrs. Soubry and prominent MP's on a day-long tour of the region, hoping to connect with the new base and energize them, approach Northern Irish votes and listen to their concerns, and exploit the notion of the region being far better represented at Westminster by an unionist, non-abstentionist and anti-Brexit party than by Sinn Fein, which is to be relentlessly linked to the idea that Brexiteers are empowered by Northern Ireland sending less MP's committed to actually show up to work and fight against a No-Deal or a Blind Brexit.

          Strategy: Identifying different missions to be fulfilled during the course of the week, the campaign will attempt to bolster efforts in Scotland and in the North West as the regions in which the Change UK vote is more limited - thus hoping to prevent not returning MP's from either region -; will move into Northern Ireland, the South East and the South West as battlegrounds worthy of major efforts, and will spend two full days in London in hopes to reigniting support and delivering an important blow to the Lib-Dem and Labour vote.

          "Like so many of you I am fed up with the way old politics has handled Brexit and so many other issues, trying to rule through fear and despair without enacting the necessary change the United Kingdom so desperately needs. If there is one thing I don't believe in, that is the idea that we should keep things exactly as they are and fail to be brave or bold when our nation needs it the most. This is decisive election, one which will not only define the future of the Brexit project and the fate of the Coalition of Chaos, but one that will determined whether we can move ahead and conquer the fears stoked by those who wish to cling to power or regain it at all cost.

          Now, today is the moment. It is up to you to take part on this crucial decision by the British people and vote for a party that represents you and your values, a party which is born out of the sheer frustration with old politics and the inability of politicians to address the very real concerns you face everyday. Isn't it time we had a government actually committed to governing this country? Isn't it time we had a government with the courage to ask the people directly what they believe? Isn't it time we had a government capable of reforming our outdated political system and undemocratic institutions like the House of Lords? Isn't it time we had a government prepared to defend the environment? Prepared to fight for your safety? Prepared to defend and bolster the union by enacting meaningful reform?

          This is the moment, and this is your chance. Together we can make a change and ensure we stop repeating the mistakes of the past, with a strong, modern and dynamic government that is actually willing to do the job and see to it that things don't remain the same in an endless cycle of incompetence. Together we can do this, and I invite you to take a stand on this election and vote for a new party that will fight for change in Britain here and now. I invite you to send a message to the Conservatives and to Labour, and vote for Change UK!"

          August 29th, SOUTH EAST: Mrs. Soubry and volunteers visit the center of main cities in the region to talk to voters directly, delivering leaflets on key local and national issues - including Brexit, crime, transport and the economy - and seeking to remind voters of Labour's questionable record (to rule them out as an alternative) as well as the mistakes of the Conservative-led coalition and the lack of clarity on Brexit. The case will be made that voters in the South East - that will be hit hard by a no-Deal or transport issues - can't afford to support a Blind Brexit by voting Conservative.

          August 30th, SOUTH WEST: Mrs. Soubry and key candidates target specific Remain-heavy areas, particularly ones with nearby universities and large numbers of students. Efforts will pursue both on a recruitment drive focused on receptive students (on Brexit, the environment and political reform) as well as limited tours to speak with voters in the streets and deliver brief but charged speeches on different relevant issues. Soubry will seek to counter the Conservative anti-No Deal narrative by pointing out Cameron's preferred partner is Mr. Nuttall, who will demand a No-Deal Brexit as his price.

          August 31st, NORTHERN IRELAND: Taking another gamble and in hopes of making even further gains in the region Soubry and half of the original Change UK MP's visit Belfast, Derry/Londonderry and border communities that would suffer the consequences of a Blind or No-Deal Brexit. Doing their best to establish links with the new activist base, the candidates and potential supporters, Soubry and other MP's will continue the offensive against Sinn Fein by tying a vote for SF as an indirect vote for Brexit, the Remain cause needing every MP it can get to actually fight the Brexiteers in Westminster. Additional emphasis will be placed on economic development of Northern Ireland and increased autonomy via a Federal UK.

          September 1st, NORTH WEST: Soubry and prominent Change UK figures enter the North West to bolster the limited party base in the region, taking the fight directly to Labour by reminding voters of the least appealing parts of Darling's economic record whilst constantly referencing Cameron's own flaws, in the hopes of weakening the Labour standing while appealing to anti-Tory voters. The more uplifting part of the messaging will focus on the North West having been mostly ignored by Westminster, something Change UK proposed to solve via a social market economy that will invest in the region instead of "playing games with people's jobs" (Blind/No-Deal Brexit).

          September 2nd, SCOTLAND: Soubry returns to Scotland in another attempt to ensure the party retains crucial support, responding to Sturgeon and the SNP by drawing attention to cuts and criticisms regarding the SNP record on crime, education and the NHS. Further criticism - as to avoid playing defense - will follow regarding the independence issue, outlining that the SNP is only making it harder to fight for Remain by maintaining a push for independence as soon as possible regardless of the consequences. Alongside repeating the Change UK message on the union (Federal UK) and the economic (Social Market), Soubry will also challenge Sturgeon on the future status of an independent Scotland, casting doubt on the future Anglo-Scottish border.

          September 3rd and 4th, LONDON: The campaign once again closes the week in London, pursuing another two-day long push by moving into more swing areas in which it is felt there's a need to challenge Labour, the Lib Dems and the Greens to prevent losses. Using both Darling (economy, Brexit hesitance) and Cameron (crime, Brexit) as convenient foils, Soubry and Change UK will do their best to differentiate themselves by campaigning on local issues that Johnson and Khan have failed to address as well (crime, housing, transport), as well as the need for an uniequivocally Remain party leading the next government, casting doubts on whether Labour would truly fill this role with their previous balancing act in the North.

          Sinn Féin
          Schedule for 29 August–4 September


          _______________________

          In General: The arrival of Soubry and "Change UK" in Ulster is a threat Sinn Féin will take extremely seriously. While organizers, local MLAs, and the party's candidates for Westminster continue the unglamorous but no less essential of mobilizing Sinn Féin's base to ensure optimal turnout in the election, McDonald will carry the battle in the field: rebutting ChUK's arguments and maintaining Sinn Féin as the only legitimate left-wing, anti-Brexit option. She will frame the election as a choice between the pro-austerity, anti-home rule Soubry (who has been ineffectual in the fight to resist Brexit in Westminster) and the anti-autserity, pro-home rule nationalists. While Soubry says Northern Ireland deserves MPs who will "actually show up to work and fight," her own record is anything but: Soubry and her colleagues were willing co-conspirators in the Tory coalition that slashed funding for public services, blew up the Stormont talks, and passed the original Brexit referendum. If showing up and fighting is so important, why has Soubry so far failed to achieve any of her priorities despite years as an MP? Furthermore, why should voters believe ChUK will be a voice for Northern Ireland when they are intentionally branding themselves as the heirs to Arlene Foster and the DUP (with whom they served in the coalition)? Sinn Féin represents the only choice who is neither corrupted by power-lust nor complicit in the crimes of the last seven years, and only they can prevent a No-Deal Brexit by sending a clear message to Westminster that those who ignore the North do so at their own peril. Rather than a weakness, Sinn Féin's abstentionism is a strength: while the mathematical reality in parliament will inevitably lead Soubry to endorse a watered-down version of Brexit as part of a Tory-led coalition, Sinn Féin is free to fight for Northern interests without the encumbrance of parliamentary maneuvering: an unsullied voice for stability and unity.

          Campaign:
          29–30 August   For two days in Belfast, McDonald and the Sinn Féin ticket leaders burn through shoe rubber like gasoline, taking the fight to the streets and into the kitchens of the Northern voters. Having already visited the city on several occasions during the campaign, the object now is to reach as many people outside Sinn Féin's usual constituency as possible, while still paying respect to the party faithful. Whether knocking on doors or speaking to gatherings of supporters and interested voters, McDonald and the Sinn Féin candidates make a simple argument. Sinn Féin is a party of Northern Ireland, for Northern Ireland; ChUK is a circus of rebranded Tories who supported the coalition's austerity policy, shuttered the Stormont Executive, and failed utterly to prevent Brexit despite numerous opportunities. Anna Soubry is not a hero ready to "show up and fight" for Northern Ireland: she is an English Tory who helped Arlene Foster run roughshod over Northern Ireland for seven years and now wants to be received as a savior by the same people she betrayed as a minister in the coalition. By positioning themselves as the heirs to the DUP, they have intentionally embraced the legacy of obstructionism and right-wing economics that have poisoned politics in the last decade. Unlike these fair-weather Remainers, Sinn Féin has consistently fought for Northern Ireland and against austerity and a hard Brexit. With a specific and realistic plan to prevent a hard border and preserve access to the Single Market and Customs Union, they are the only reliable voice for Remain voters and working people in the North.

          31 August   Visiting a dozen towns along the border with the Republic of Ireland, McDonald repeats her charges agains ChUK and rejects the notion that "a vote for Sinn Féin is a vote for Brexit." To the contrary, Sinn Féin has been the only consistent voice against Brexit from the beginning: their plan to secure designated special status for Northern Ireland closely resembled a solution proposed by the EU negotiators and has a real chance of success —if Westminster is made to understand that Northern Ireland is not to be ignored. The way to impress this message is not by voting for the Tory-lite ChUK, who will only abandon their principles to join a third Conservative coalition government the moment the election is over, but to support Sinn Féin, a strong vote for which will send a clear signal to Westminster that even David Cameron cannot ignore. By refusing to partake in self-serving parliamentary maneuvers, Sinn Féin is the only Remain option unadulterated by ulterior motives that serve to dilute the party's message. Their candidates aren't running to be Prime Minister or Home Secretary: their only motivation is to advocate for the people of Northern Ireland, a charge Soubry failed seven years over while serving in May and Leadom's governments.

          1–2 September   In Derry, McDonald contrasts Sinn Féin's record—opposing austerity and privatization, standing up for workers' rights, advocating for Northern Ireland against the prospect of a hard border—with that of ChUK's leading members—mainly former Tories who voted to slash funding for vital public services and roll back workplace protections as part of Theresa May's "Coalition of Chaos." While ChUK claims to represent the only true Remain option, their opposition to Brexit is surface-deep: they're not interested in protecting Northern Ireland, but in promoting their own self-interest. Anna Soubry isn't running to fix Brexit: instead, she wants to win enough seats to force the next prime minister to promise her a lucrative seat in the government, whereupon she will abandon her newfound leftist principles and join the Tories in passing five more years of austerity and direct rule. By virtue of their abstentionism, Sinn Féin is the only choice unencumbered by parliamentary infighting. Therefore, a vote for Sinn Féin cannot be misinterpreted as anything other than an expression of solidarity with the working people of Northern Ireland.

          3–4 September   Canvassing across Tyrone, McDonald again cites Sinn Féin's record standing up for the common people compared to their rivals, particularly ChUK. On austerity, on healthcare, on education, on workers' rights —Sinn Féin is consistently the only reliable voice for the people amidst a sea of Thatcherites and opportunists. While ChUK has attempted to cast the election as a single-issue referendum on Brexit, the reality is their commitment to the EU stems not from a desire to protect Northern Ireland from the fallout of a hard Brexit, but from a selfish desire to enrich themselves at the expense of everyone else. ChUK's extravagant promises hide a seven-year record of supporting massive cuts to public spending to pay for a tax giveaway to the wealthy —a scheme Soubry defended as recently as this year. ChUK cannot advocate for Northern Ireland in the Brexit process because ChUK does not care to understand Northern Ireland: they see the 18 seats here as just another opportunity to strengthen their bargaining position in negotiations to form the next government. Sinn Féin, by contrast, is a party by and for Northern Ireland: their first priority is the wellbeing of the local communities they represent, because those are their communities to. They will fight for Northern rights and Northern interests because this is their home, too: something ChUK's leadership neither understands, nor cares to.

          Green Party 2019

          August 29-31: Caroline Lucas and ticket leaders in London were accompanied by David Attenborough as they campaigned through the city to shore up the Green Party vote there. It's expected that London will continue to remain fertile ground for the party's message of environmentalism and equality. Lucas also announced the party's full endorsement of the climate change protests planned for late September. In addition, they held a major forum meeting in the centre of London to discuss the policies that the Green Party would push for in Parliament, including the New Energy Plan and the Green New Deal and instituting it in the UK.

          September 1-2: Campaigning thses days was focused in the south-east, as Lucas not only attempted to shore up her vote in Brighton, but also to expand their vote in other seats to get more Green MPs elected. Another vow was made that the Green party would not support any coalition that did not promise immediate action on climate change through the expansion of renewable energy.

          September 3-4: These days were spent in Wales, where Lucas (who by now is virtually surviving on coffee) met with constituent branches of the Green Party, and endeavoured to aid the efforts of as many consitutency parties as she possibly could. She also met with leading list candidates in the area to formulate a strategy for the party's policies in Parliament.

          Labour: Together with Pride


          Strategy
          Labour will focus its attention on five regions this turn: London, the Northwest, Scotland, Wales, and Yorkshire. Resources shall be devoted in that order. Broadly speaking, Alastair will reiterate many of his earlier points while canvassing and work with local Labour MPs to get out the vote. Darling will accompany canvassers on the 29th and September 3rd by personally talking to voters on the doorstep.

          In London, Labour will focus on areas that backed remain, concentrating its efforts in places that leaned towards staying in the European Union. In these areas, it will be best to emphasize Labour’s stance on Brexit and connect with as many voters as possible. Darling will give a speech in Putney on the 30th. Labour will continue to open offices across the Greater London Area, opening them in Finchley and Golders Green, Putney, Chingford and Woodford Green.

          For the Northwest, efforts should be focused on the Liverpool metro area, Copeland, Bolton West, and Blackpool North. Local volunteers should talk about Labour’s economic message and advocate for local MP’s. Darling will make a personal visit here in early September. Offices should be built in the aforementioned constituencies.

          In Scotland, volunteers and canvassers should promote Darling’s recent comments on the European Union and public investment in Scotland. These two taking points should be featured heavily on the doorstop. Volunteers should help local candidates and promote existing MPs. Campaign outreach offices should be constructed in Edinburgh North, Edinburgh South, Glasgow South, and Glasgow South West.

          Wales should receive similar attention as mentioned above; offices must be created in Gower, the Vale of Glamorgan, and Clywd West. Campaigners ought to mention Labour’s economic message and Mr. Darling’s recent comments on public investment in Wales.

          Mr. Darling will make a personal visit to Yorkshire to bolster local campaigners. An office should be opened in Pudsey. Similar talking points should be used as those in the Northwest.

          From the GM
          1. This turn will end at 11:59 PM on Sunday, August 25. This will be a hard end time, so I can have time to prepare the Election Day posts.
          2. Party Leaders are encouraged to post a party political broadcast this turn. This is a five-minute television advertisement that will air on the BBC on the day before the election.
          3. This turn is your final chance to speak to the voters before they go to the polls. Make it count.

          Labour: Together with Pride


          Strategy
          In the final week of the campaign, the Labour Party will focus the vast majority of its resources on London, the North of England, and the West Midlands. This week is crucial to our efforts and Mr. Darling shall be campaigning nonstop in those three regions. Existing infrastructure in those key regions shall be doubled, with more details to follow this paragraph. On the doorstep, canvassers ought to query voters on the issue that matters most to them, then respond with a key list of Labour policy points. For example, if the respondent cites the NHS as their chief concern, highlight Labour’s manifesto on ‘Protecting the NHS’ and cite Labour’s commitment to invest $50 Billion in the NHS.

          London is crucial in Labour’s final push. The last offices shall be opened in Brentforth and Isleworth, Eltham, and Bermondsey and Old Southwark. Similar to last week, all organizers and canvassers are instructed to hammer home Labour’s Brexit message, so much so as to quote Mr. Darling’s answer at the last debate. However, in constituencies like Eltham, canvassers are instructed to provide a more broad picture, emphasizing public investment and Labour’s economic message as well.

          Throughout London, it is also crucial to talk about Labour’s support for infrastructure spending and the Crossrail initiative. However, do not mention Heathrow’s runway expansion unless the respondent asks for Labour’s position. Canvassers are also told to include Labour’s message on education and the NHS, and to quote the concrete goals found in the manifesto. Finally, Labour organizers and volunteers should harshly criticize the Conservative message on Brexit and David Cameron’s answer at the last debate.

          In the North of England (both Northwest and Northeast), canvassers are asked to emphasize Labour’s economic message and, in particular, the ‘Rescuing Forgotten Communities’, part of the manifesto. Canvassers should say that Labour has a stalwart commitment to the North and that the other parties, most notably the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, have no plan to help these working class communities. Their proposals call for the enrichment of the wealthy in unfair trade deals and tax cuts for large corporations. Emphasize that the Liberal Democrats have paid lip service to public investment and to the working class in general.

           In coastal towns, talk about ‘Blue New Deal’ initiative in the manifesto. Do not talk about the EU much, unless quizzed by respondents. Should respondents ask about Brexit, say that Labour supports remaining in the EU, but will not support the destruction of the working class at the hands of the wealthy. Emphasize Labour’s commitment to investing in communities hurt by trade and deindustrialization. Talk about efforts to reform the EU’s fishing agreements in coastal communities.

          For the West Midlands, organizers should focus on the same talking points as in the North, with a special focus on the local economy, infrastructure, and investment. Emphasize Labour’s talking points on the NHS and education. Mr. Darling will personally assist on the doorstep in the first few days of the final week. Offices should be opened in Walsall North, Worcester, and Telford. Focus on the marginal constituencies and paint the Labour Party in an optimistic, hopeful light; in other words, in stark contrast with the Conservative Party.

          As for the other regions, more attention shall be given to Yorkshire and the Humber, Wales, and Scotland. Within Yorkshire, it is important to emphasize the ‘Blue New Deal’ in places like Great Grimsby. A new office should be opened in Morley and the Outwood. Canvassers in Yorkshire should focus on Labour’s NHS and education plan, along with economic investment in the more distressed communities. Push against the current Conservative government’s economic plan.

          In Wales, canvassers should attempt to collect the remaining Plaid Cymru vote if possible. In this region, it is especially important to talk about Labour’s plan for the environment and Mr. Darling’s answer on carbon neutrality in Britain. Organizers should also point to Labour’s message on economic investment and on ending Brexit uncertainty. Hammer the Conservative Party on their economic plan and on the environment.

          Finally, Scotland should receive much the same campaigning as last turn. This time, volunteers ought to talk about Labour’s NHS plan and education as well. Emphasize that Labour wants the UK to stay in the EU. Go for SNP voters who are not in favor of Scottish Independence, but support more autonomy.

          All in all, the message in the last week of the campaign should look like this: Talk about Labour’s agenda, emphasize hope and optimism in ending Brexit uncertainty, and hammer the Tories wherever possible. Where the Liberal Democrats threaten Labour, attack their economic message as lip service for the working class.

          Schedule
          September 5th
          --Canvassing in Telford with Mr. Darling
          --Canvassing in Walsall North with Mr. Darling
          --Attend MP speech in Dudley North

          Throughout his tour of the West Midlands, Mr. Darling will be working closely with local activists on the doorstep and behind the scenes to bolster Labour turnout. Striking a conciliatory tone, Mr. Darling will act as a unifying figure within the Party. At public events, he will hit back against the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. Mr. Darling will attack the Liberal Democrats as having failed to explain how they will help working people. As for the Conservatives, Darling will attack David Cameron’s answer at the last debate on Brexit in detail and lament the Tories for creating so much uncertainty and anxiety for the people of Britain.

          September 6th
          --Take the train to the Northeast and meet travelers
          --Canvassing in Darlington
          --Canvassing in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland

          Mr. Darling will oversee efforts in the Northeast of England, helping volunteers in key Labour marginals and promoting Labour’s economic agenda. Mr. Darling will attack the Liberal Democrats as failing to have a serious economic manifesto for the people of the Northeast and lacking any proposal to invest in distressed communities. Mr. Darling will explain Labour’s ‘Blue New Deal’ and community fund mentioned in the manifesto, in order to help voters understand their impact on the local economy.

          September 6th
          --Canvassing in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland with Mr. Darling
          --Take the Train to the Northwest
          --Speech on Labour’s Brexit message in Southport

          In the Northwest, Mr. Darling will promote a similar message to that explained in the Northeast. Labour is the only party that can help people in the North earn a decent living and live a comfortable existence. Labour is the only party with a concrete plan to bring investment and economic security to Northern communities hurt by trade and the loss of industry.

          September 7th
          --Canvassing in Copeland
          --Canvassing in Bolton West
          --Meet with local Labour MPs and plan strategy

          September 8th
          --Take the Train to Wales
          --Canvassing in Gower
          --Canvassing in Arfon

          In Wales, Mr. Darling will work hard to restore Labour’s legitimacy and attack the Liberal Democrats on the grounds that they lack a sufficiently strong plan on the environment. Darling will also hammer the Tories for creating Brexit uncertainty and for an economic plan that favors the wealthy.

          September 9th
          --Canvassing in Clwyd West with Mr. Darling
          --Take the train to London
          --Canvassing in Eltham with Mr. Darling

          The last few days of the campaign are critical. Mr. Darling shall head to London and will finish the campaign with a message of hope for the people of London. Mr Darling will focus extensively on remaining in the EU, on education, and on the NHS. Mr. Darling will work closely with organizers to increase Labour turnout in marginal constituencies. On the last day of the campaign, Mr. Darling will thank volunteers from across the country via a video conference. He will also give a final speech with Mayor Sadiq Khan, calling for national unity and for the electorate to choose hope over fear. The last few hours of the campaign will be spent working with volunteers on the doorstep and preparing for the polls to close.

          September 10th
          --Speech on Remaining in the EU in Battersea
          --Canvassing in Dagenham and Rainham
          --Talk with voters in Putney

          September 11th

          ”Crossroads”

          The Following is a Political Broadcast by the Labour Party

          Dockworker: “I feel like this Brexit stuff, this whole debate...it’s left me feeling uncertain about my future. Y’know, I voted to leave because my town has suffered and things have never gotten better. I wanted some kind of agreement that kept trade going. But the Tories, they seem to want us to go come ‘ell or highwater. I don’t know if I’ll have a job if we leave…”


          Truck Driver: “I’m concerned about the lack of work, yes. My usual clients have cut back recently. I’ve heard there’s gonna be chaos at the ports if there’s no deal...My company held a mandatory training on Brexit the other day. I just feel so nervous about this whole situation. I can’t say I’m optimistic about where we’re heading.”


          Teacher: “Over the past seven years, my income has stagnated. I’m a 20 year veteran and I haven’t seen a raise in who knows how long. I voted to leave cause I thought we’d get more money in education. It made sense at the time. There were people promising to put the money we gave Brussels to the NHS and to teachers like me. Now, it just feels like a broken promise…”


          Elderly Man: “When I was a young man, I earned a wage that could support my family. We weren’t rich, but we could go on holiday to the coast every year and we still had enough left over to save. Now, my grandson says he can barely make ends meet at his flat. I thought Brexit would give us back those jobs, but now I worry if my grandson can still afford his flat...or if I can keep my home…”


          Student: “I’ve heard my mum and dad all worried about Brexit. Late last night, mum broke down in tears. She doesn’t know how we can make it if dad loses his job at the plant. I don’t know what we’ll do if my dad’s job goes away. I’m scared.”

          *music starts playing*

          Narrator: “All across Britain, people are worried about what the future holds. But the Labour Party has a plan to secure a bright future for working people across our Union.”


          Narrator: “Labour will put a stop to Brexit uncertainty by rescinding Article 50 on day 1; Labour will hold a meaningful referendum where every option is explained to the people. Voters will know the exact consequences that their choice will have should they choose to vote for it. If the people of Britain vote to leave the EU again, Labour will not trigger Article 50 until an agreement has been reached and has been approved by the voters.”


          Narrator: “Labour will end years of Tory austerity and invest in Britain’s forgotten towns and cities. Labour will rebuild coastal communities with the Blue New Deal and will strengthen our unions that have suffered under the Tory government. Labour will build 300,000 new council homes and establish a Community Development Fund to help local councils across Britain. A Labour government will implement an Industrial Impact Fund, designed to help working class communities that have been hurt by unfair trade deals and multinational corporations.”


          Narrator: “A Labour government will invest in education, raising teacher pay for the first time in a decade and decreasing class sizes in all schools across Britain. Labour will end years of neglect by the Conservatives and create an educational system that uses the best teachers to teach the youth of our country.”


          Narrator: “Labour will invest in the NHS, adding billions promised to fund doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Private profits will be capped on healthcare and wait times will fall with more investment in emergency services and nonessential surgeries. Above all, Labour will oppose any privatization of British healthcare, and protect the most vulnerable in our society from exploitation and austerity.”


          Narrator: “A Labour Government will fight to protect our environment. Labour pledges to make Britain carbon neutral by 2030. Labour will invest in clean, renewable energy all across our nation. Labour will do everything in its power to reduce and roll back climate change, working with our friends in Europe and around the world to cut carbon emissions in half.”


          Alistair Darling: “Britain stands at a crossroads today. Uncertainty about the future plagues our people and paralyzes politicians with fear. Today, I promise to end those fears and replace uncertainty with a secure future for all working people in our country. Together we can seize the opportunities in front of us and build a Britain worthy of the next generation. We can protect our environment and heal our cities from decades of rapacious, casino style capitalism. We can invest in our teachers, our students, and in the NHS.

          We can put a stop to politics as usual and revitalize civic engagement in the political process. When we go forward as one people, with one purpose and one goal, nothing can stand in our way. On the eve of the most important election in our history, I invite you to join us and choose labour over capital, security over uncertainty, and hope over fear. Vote for Labour. Vote for hope.”

          September 5-11

          September 5: Door-to-door campaigning in the East Midlands

          September 6: Speech about the tax proposal in Nottingham

          Quote
          We will truly transform the British tax system and establish a truly progressive tax. Our tax proposal, however, will only raise taxes on those making over 150,000 pounds. Our tax would raise taxes on those making over 150,000 pounds to 70%, those making over 285,000 pounds would pay a tax of 80%, and those making over 500,000 pounds would pay a tax of 90%. This progressive taxation scheme will allow us to fund our party's ambitious proposals for the NHS, education, and more.

          September 7: Door-to-door campaigning in Wales

          September 8: Speech about the education proposal in Cardiff

          Quote
          It is time that our education system has some real investment in it. We will invest 100 billion pounds into the education system and build hundreds of new schools. We will build these new schools in places like rural Wales. We will invest in education, because we believe that every child deserves a chance at a quality education. Under our ministry, every child of Britain will have a fair shot at a quality education.

          September 9: Door-to-door campaigning in London

          September 10: Speech about the NHS proposal in London

          Quote
          We will invest in the NHS. We will invest 100 billion pounds in the NHS. We will also build 500 new hospitals across Britain. Our party's goal is to improve the quality of healthcare in Britain. We seek a Britain, where everyone can have access to a hospital, no matter where they live. We also seek a Britain, with a stronger NHS, so that more and more people can enjoy the benefits of having healthcare.

          September 11: Canvassing and getting voters out to vote in London

          We will hold a second referendum on Brexit, and let voters decide if they truly want to leave the European Union.

          Official portrait of Jo Swinson

          Jo Swinson: The Liberal Democratic agenda is one for a better Britain for everyone. Our ambitious agenda will allow a fair chance to everyone in Britain. We will suspend the ill-advised Brexit process, we will invest millions in the NHS and in the education system. The Conservatives' plan to just allow Brexit to continue to happen, without allowing us to think it over is a mistake. Meanwhile, Labour has not put forth as ambitious of an agenda as we have, showing that when it is truly time to fight for all of these great causes, they won't fight as hard as we will. Ultimately, after years of Conservative and Labour, Britain needs a third choice. One who will move us through the great times  of crisis and into the future. Britain needs someone who will fight for Britain. Liberal Democrats are that choice. Vote for change, vote for the Liberal Democrats.

          Remarks on Recent Comments by the Leader of the Opposition

          Quote
          Good evening everyone, I'm glad to be back in London for the last few days of this momentous campaign. There's been plenty of energy on the doorstep in the past few weeks and right now, I'm feeling cautiously optimistic. I do apologize for the impromptu presser; I just got off the train from Cardiff about 20 minutes ago.

          Let me just say that I'm so proud of our Welsh canvassers and volunteers. They have accomplished so much over the course of the campaign. Their passion and their drive helped lift spirits over a particularly rainy weekend across Wales. Arfon was absolutely drenched by the time our volunteers started knocking on doors, but their persistence in spite of Mother Nature was simply inspiring. They knocked on over 5,000 doors in the midst of an absolute downpour. By late afternoon, there was a break in the action and we got a chance to wrap things up under clear skies. Once again, I'm very, very proud of every single one of them.

          I do want to talk about recent comments by the Leader of the Opposition, Jo Swinson, that have just come to light. Let me be clear. I commend the Liberal Democrats commitment to a People's Vote. I commend their proposal to invest in education and the NHS. However, Ms. Swinson has not come up with much of a plan for how their investment will be spent. There are no specifics on where that money will go! The Liberal Democrats suggest that they will build 500 new hospitals and 500 new schools. These are fine ideas, but there's no suggestion on how they plan to spend the remainder of their investment.

          I ask these questions because the details do matter. Our manifesto points to specific areas of improvement and investment.

          We call for a real, structural reform of the education system in this country. We call for improving teacher training, improving teacher pay, and creating a better vocational program for British students. We are committed to ending tax free status for private educational institutions. The Liberal Democrats have not made that commitment

          We promise to protect the NHS by capping private profits off of our healthcare and by opposing any attempts to privatize British healthcare. The Liberal Democrats have not made that commitment. Our manifesto requires the NHS to produce local plans that help local communities. Our plan calls for a decade long funding plan, to ensure that our investment is spent wisely and delivers shorter wait times for the people of this nation.

          There are other concerns as well. We have a proposal on fighting for greater inclusivity in our Union. The Liberal Democrats have failed to put forward a policy tackling the issue. Labour has also put forward a plan to invest in the forgotten towns and cities across this nation. Many of these communities have been hurt by unfair trade deals. The Liberal Democrats are silent on how to help them.

          I commend the Liberal Democrats for their ideas, but an idea without a plan is simply a promise waiting to be broken. Okay, thank you for your time!

          Scottish National Party: A voice for Scotland





          Up next, a party political broadcast from the Scottish National Party.




          Many Scots have long noticed the brokenness of Westminster, its indifference to the people of Scotland. For a long time, we've trusted Labour to stand up for the Scottish working class but the Scottish people have shown that they won't be taken for granted by Westminster parties.




          The Tories and have implemented cuts after cuts on our vital public services. These policies were actively endorsed by the leader of Change UK, and in part by the leaders of Labour and the Liberal Democrats. These savage cuts started during Alistair Darling's reign as chancellor. It is the SNP which will lead the charge against austerity.




          Brexit threatens 80,000 Scottish jobs, that is 80,000 families put in extreme uncertainty and in many cases, poverty. Leaked memos reveal that the Tories don't view Scottish jobs as high priority, we do. The Westminster parties have been facilitating Brexit, it is the SNP who will make Scotland's voice heard. Labour claims to oppose Brexit, but are very silent on this when campaigning in Pro-Brexit areas, why?



          You may be thinking, "We know Westminster doesn't care about Scotland, but what is the SNP actually doing? Aren't you just obsessed with Independence?" Here is what the SNP has been doing over the last 12 years.




          We have scrapped tuition fees, built or done up 750 schools and helped create thousands of new apprenticeships. We want our youngsters to be able to get the education they need, regardless of their class background.




          We've built 70,000 new affordable homes so that more Scots can afford to have their own place.




          We've offered free childcare to parents who want to work.




          We've scrapped prescription charges and 12,000 more people are now working in the NHS in Scotland.




          We've put more police on the streets at a time when the Tories have cut police numbers in England and Wales. Crime is down 42% since we took power.




          We've created a National Investment Bank which invests in communities across Scotland, understanding the importance of investing in the people of Scotland.




          We've expanded infrastructure across Scotland with the Queensferry crossing, the Greenock motorway and expanded transport links to the Highlands and Islands, with the environment in mind.




          The SNP offers a real alternative to the Westminster parties which have long ignored Scotland's needs. We believe in an independent Scotland which looks after its most vulnerable and is an active member of the EU. Find out more at snp.org.

          Scottish National Party: A voice for Scotland



          5th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Kilmarnock. She tweets.
          Quote
          Good news! The Prime Minister has finally visited Scotland for the first time in the campaign.

          6th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Glasgow.

          7th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Glasgow. She gives a brief speech about healthcare.
          Quote
          The SNP supports the NHS proudly, despite the constant attacks it has faced. We have increased spending on health to £13.9 billion at a time when the Tories are cutting in the rest of the UK. Things are improving in almost all areas, particularly A&E, more staff, patient satisfaction, pay for staff, dentist registration, cancer mortality is down. We have made prescriptions free, allowing people to save money on essential medication and we have put a higher priority on mental health than the rest of the UK. The SNP's record on the NHS is clear, we are strong supporters of the NHS and want to improve healthcare access and reduce costs further in future.

          8th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Glasgow. She gives a speech about the drug emergency.
          Quote
          Unfortunately, we have a major problem with increasing drug-related deaths. across the UK. How does the SNP plan to tackle this emergency? We need a public health approach to drug policy which recognises the need to look at more root causes of substance misuse by tackling inequalities and intervening earlier in order to protect people at risk. However, we have faced opposition for this approach from the Tories in Westminster, who have blocked the creation of a Supervised Drug Consumption Facility which allows for a more gradual transition for drug users to end their addiction. This is where the upcoming election is important. We need more SNP MPs in Westminster who will push for more devolved powers and allow for an approach to the drug emergency which helps drug users lose their addiction with dignity, rather than treating them as criminals.

          9th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Motherwell.

          10th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Edinburgh. She tweets in response to attacks from Anna Soubry.
          Quote
          The SNP has been working hard to limit the effects of the cuts which were supported by Mrs Soubry.

          11th September:

          Nicola Sturgeon knocks on doors and talks to voters in Dundee. She gives a speech on how devolution has improved Scotland.
          Quote
          This year marks two decades since the refounding of the Scottish parliament in 1999. This was a major milestone in Scotland's long history, and a huge step forward. As a result, Scotland is a much more politically engaged country than before. Scotland now has a lot more control over issues that affect it and this is something we should all celebrate. This goes to an even deeper level than the massive policy strides the SNP government has made since taking power, such as free tuition and affordable housing. These progressive ideas and policies represent a very progressive country in a way that was unimaginable in the Thatcher years. Westminster is crumbling under the pressure of constant posturing over Brexit and continuing cuts, neither of which Scotland voted for. Ultimately, for Scotland to continue on a progressive path, active in the EU, protecting vulnerable people, Scotland must break from Westminster. Unfortunately, Westminster won't allow us to have a vote on independence and this shows the importance of these elections. More SNP MPs means a stronger voice for Scotland's voice over Brexit, devolution and the important question of self determination and independence.

          BFP SCHEDULE

          September 5th: Nigel Farage and Nikki Sinlcaire Campaign in the West Midlands on protecting British Industry

          "Our countries industry is under threat from the flow of goods coming from Europe and Asia that we just let in after they've used cheap labor to out compete our British goods. We need to start supporting Britain again. We can't let our country's great industrial prowess fall on the way side as we let the government watch. We must do something, as it is our prosperity being taken away. Who here knows people who lost their jobs due to outsourcing, or factories closing? I know I do. And yet we see leaders telling us that this is good, that this is progress for our nation. That we will move on from those "Low Skill" jobs and on to "higher skilled" and "Higher Paying" jobs. What they don't seem to understand is that these jobs take skill, and they have helped many support their families for years before our awful trade policies lead to so many losing their jobs. They may pretend they're helping our country, but you're not, you don't know better, you don't with Brexit and you sure as hell don't with this, Ms. Soubry, Ms. Swinson, Ms. Sturgeon, Mr. Darling, and of course, you too Mr. Prime Minister!
          *Cheering*
          So, what are we going to do, you ask? We are going to give tax breaks for countries that do produce goods in the UK. We're going to tax companies that try to get a leg up by moving over seas to take advantage of the cheaper labor and more lax quality standards overseas. We will work more closely with Businesses and their employees in England to know what they do and what they don't like about staying here, and we're gonna start supporting small business in England, we are a country of opportunity, so lets start acting like it!
          *Cheering*"
          -Nigel Farage

          September 6th - Paul Nuttall, Nigel Farage in the East Midlands on combating crime.

          September 7th - Earl of Dartmouth campaigns in East of England with Paul Nuttall

          "Look, compared to the last General Election, are things for you better, or worse? Are you safer? Has there been less crime? Have any of your local economic drivers shut down, moved overseas or laid off workers? The fact of the matter is, not everyone is doing great. Right now, we have a bunch of people who have spent their lives in London, doing what's best for London, acting like its whats the best for the whole country running the place. They've forgotten about outsourcing, because they don't see the factories shutting down daily like we do. They don't see the people who have lost their jobs due to this, they just see cheaper clothes and cheaper electronics. We see. We know what has happened to the English Working class, and we're here to help you."

          September 8th - Caroline Jones visits Welsh Miners

          September 9th - Nigel Farage visits Yorkshire and the Humber to talk about combating government elitism and actually helping the Middle and Working class.

          September 10th - Nuttall campaigns in SW England

          September 11th - Nigel Farage talks about combating opioids in NE England

          STRATEGY

          The BFP needs to draw a line between the main establishment political parties and itself. This will be done by showing how the big parties support of unrestrained free trade is bad for the country. More efforts will be made to reach out to these voters in areas in the north of England in particular, where these voters generally tended to support Labour while also voting for Brexit. Painting those who are unwilling to accept the loss of the remain movement in the Brexit Referendum as acting as if they know better than everyday Brits is important. It shows that we are a party that listens to and accepts the decision of the people. We listened to them on Brexit and we will listen should they lose their jobs due to elitist mismanagement in the government.

          We will obviously target the heavily Brexit favoring regions like the Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber and the North of England, with our outreach efforts to voters in the area pointing out that all other parties are not committed to Brexit happening, and will sell voters out as soon as something more convenient comes along, if they're already not talking about disrespecting the voters wills. However, we are not going to give up on areas like Wales, where Brexit won a narrow majority, and Scotland and London, which despite being very strongly pro remaining, still had 1 million + voting for Brexit. Those odds would be awful in a FPTP scenario, but we can certainly mobilize voters to cross the threshold for MPs in those regions with numbers like those. Focus should be given to working class and middle class voters in these areas, Scotland in particular has many miners, fishers, and others who would be very negatively effected by the loss of Jobs caused by uncontrolled globalization.

          BFP TELEVISION AD: "Proud"




          "I am a proud coal miner"



          "Im a fisherman and proud of it"



          "Im proud to be a teacher"



          "I was proud to be a factory worker too. Until I lost my job to outsourcing."

          Everyday, our leaders are telling us that we are moving forward, and that we're making economic progress. We're told that Britain will be better for all of the Global economic changes its undergoing. While many are benefiting from the lowered prices of foreign produced goods, many are suffering from job loss, rising crime and stagnant wages. Prime Minister Cameron, we ask you...

          (together)
          "are you proud?"

          Speech in London regarding comments by Leader of the Labour Party and Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling

          Quote
          Good evening,

          Mr. Darling accused of not specifying how we plan to spend our investment in the NHS and education system, however our campaign has said that we want to make care more accessible, which will mean more hospitals, as well as more hospital beds, and funding for new research for medicines. Regarding education we have said that we want to ensure that every child receives a quality education. This means building hundreds of new schools and investing in teachers, as well books and other learning necessities. Also we have been accused of not looking for forgotten communities, but many of the new schools and hospitals will be in largely ignored rural areas in the countryside. However, what we can agree with Labour and Mr. Darling on is that there needs to be a second referendum and that 5 more years of a Conservative government is not what Britain needs.

          Thank you!
