We’re good to go:
Take a few moments to enjoy our first campaign ad and then come back here when you’re ready.
OK. Initially, I want 3 things from you. It’s up to you how much you give.
1. I want some prime real estate on your website. I want you to use the link tools to drive as much traffic our way as you can.
2. I want your money. I want you to donate money via Paypal today if you can (we’ll be accepting cheques from next week if all goes well). The money will be spent on things like these mobile billboards that have built-in PA systems that will allow us to spout wonderfully skewed ‘pro’-Blair propaganda like:
“A vote for Tony Blair protects you from the terrorist threat.”
“Eat more sausages. Sausages are an inexpensive source of protein.”
Fun fun fun fun fun.
3. I want you to get involved. I want you to join or form a group and do stuff. Then I want you to document it, photograph it, video it and publish/blog it.
I want you and your readers excited, I want you and your readers revved up, and I want you and your readers entertained.
And what you see at Backing Blair is just the start, BTW. We have some fanatasic material in reserve.
We’ve also identified 92 serving MPs with the title ‘mp’ in their domain name. All of these people will have to move house as soon as the election is called. The list includes Michael Howard, Charles Clarke, and many MPs who have played significant roles in information technology, so really should know better.
I repeat: fun fun fun fun fun.
Let’s go show the professionals how Teh Interwebs works. Let’s make this an election where grass-roots campaigning plays a major role. Let’s get some important issues on the agenda. Let’s get some intelligent debate started.
Let’s. Get. Tony.
