Part of the Labour leader’s speech that really stood out for us here at Vox Political was his use of the phrase “For the privileged few.”
He said it a couple of times. Firstly, when discussing Gareth of the software company, he said: “He’s got a five year old daughter, he’s earning a decent wage, he can’t afford to buy a home for himself and for his family, he’s priced out by the richest. He thinks that unless you’re one of the privileged few in Britain the country is not going to work for you and your kids are going to have a worse life than you.”
His words echoed a series of images created by Vox Political during the Conservative Party conference last year, when it became clear that the toffs were talking to themselves and had no interest in the vast majority of the British and Northern Irish people. Working with a friend on Twitter, we produced images like this one:
And this one:
Had Mr Miliband been reading this blog before he said, “In the next eight months the British people face one of the biggest choices in generations; a choice between carrying on as we are, on your own, for the privileged few, or a different, better future for our country”?
Feel free to use the images anywhere you like.
