What happens when you let a literary critic loose on the various party manifestos? A splendid savaging of drab platitudes, stylistic tics and slovenly syntax. The Tories? Slick. Labour? Cliche-strewn. Lib Dems? "Impeccably even-handed". The SNP? Dry and terse. UKIP? A grammatical car crash.
Unsurprisingly, given that the critic in question, Terry Eagleton, is something of an old-school Marxist, he finds most to admire in the Green Party's effort: "The humane intelligence that informs their politics is reflected in the
quality of the writing. As always, you should vote for the best read."
