Plain English Campaign calls for ‘clear and straightforward’ manifestos
Gordon Brown has announced the general election is to take place on 6 May 2010. Plain English Campaign is pleased to know that the Prime Minister is appealing to the public for a ‘clear and straightforward mandate’. For over 30 years Plain English Campaign has been fighting for ‘clear and straightforward’ information from Parliament and government offices.
To encourage election candidates to use plain English in their political manifestos, the campaign is putting together a plain English manifesto. This manifesto will contain contributions from the public about their thoughts on the standard of public communications. Plain English Campaign would like to know what you think can be done to improve information in education, health and other areas of public interest.
