If GCSE English taught me anything, it is that a comparison of two texts can reveal so much more than reading something in isolation. When one novel explores an issue in depth, and the other barely touches on it, you can infer a lot about the author and their intentions/motivations.
Never has that been more true than with the Tory and Labour 2017 manifestos. With mainstream media focusing merely on the highs and lows of both of them, the nuances of the two are being neglected. Specifically when it comes to a direct comparison, it is interesting to see how one party explores an issue in depth, whilst the other completely ignores the very same issue.
|Theresa’s manifesto says:||Jeremy’s manifesto says:|
If you haven’t realised yet, there is nothing in the Tory manifesto regarding the development of LGBT+ rights.
Remember this when you vote on 8th June.
