Left-wing election slogans

I am looking for interesting suggestions for left-wing election slogans relevant for Australia today.

Here are some old and new ones.

Turn Morrison back – to the Hague

Jail Morrison for his crimes

Morrison to the Hague

Make the bosses pay for their climate change

It is right to strike

Equal pay for equal work

Tax the Rich

Equal Love Now

Treaty Now

Refugees are welcome here

Abbott is a bigot

No to corporatised Universities

Health Care is a right, not a privilege.

Money for hospitals, not war

Money for schools, not war

Public transport not roads

All pretty mundane. Panache, pizzazz, flamboyance and flair anyone? Add your suggestions to the comments. To do that hit the comments link under the heading. I will publish them if they are OK.

Contributions to date:

Kay:

Equal public funding for all candidates for election.

No private donations for election candidates.

Peter:

Save endangered species …Adopt a union NOW

Coal or Death ….

March….

Terry:

John R:

There were excellent reasons for John Howard losing his own seat. I almost threw a party in celebration.

When Kevin Rudd left the seat of Griffith, the new Labor candidate barely won the bi-election by a hair. Liberals might have got up if new Queensland LNP Premier Campbell Newman had not already commenced turning voters off.

When former Premier Anna Bligh lost the last Queensland state election, Labor was very worried about losing the seat of South Brisbane in a bi-election as well.

I was handing out flyers for Katter’s Australian Party and had to put up with one of Anna’s sons making rude comments he thought I could not hear. Labor booth workers stood to the left and right of me.

All of these occurrences are very clear indications that the general public is not impressed with either of the major parties, but at the last federal election, around 80% voted like idiots yet again.

If Australia had equal media time and funding for all candidates, the major parties would be driven into extinction.

Well, I’m sure Tony Abbott must be a “suppository” of something. I wonder if he would enjoy a colonic irrigation with methylated spirits.
