Well, sorta!

We have local government elections coming up here soon. State and Federal level politics here require a semblance* of normality* (and generally the backing of a major party). Local government does not - it is open to every numbskull under the sun. So, it is a fairly good thing that local governments here don't actually do/change much.

There is a guy I know who is a local landscape gardener. He is the son-in-law of a former local Councillor. He is also a small cog in the local right of centre political party. He has a chance to be elected as a local councillor. His name is Phil DeAth.

Now, Phil likes to pronounce his surname 'Dee-Ath' (can't really blame him). Sadly, I'm not so kind to those on the right hand side of politics (even if it is local). I insist on pronouncing Phil's name as that thing that follows life.

I'm thinking that I wouldn't mind being Phil's campaign manager - notwithstanding my distaste for his politics (and, frankly, my ambivalence towards him as a guy). Being his campaign manager would permit me the luxury of determining his campaign slogans.

And I'm certain some of you can help me with that! Just remember to capitalize the 'A'!

'DeAth to Washington'...

'DeAth to our local council'...

You get it - help me out here!

Bill Shakespeare could be this guy's slogan writer:

"DeAth will have his day"

"Be absolute for DeAth"

"We owe God a DeAth"

"DeAth, DeAth; O amiable, lovely DeAth!"

"Nothing we can call our own but DeAth"

Not always a cheerful fellow, that Shakespeare.

Update...DeAth boy did fairly well.

He finished 5th of 14, yet sadly only 3 were elected. (He blamed the Greens for sending their preferences elsewhere).

I saw him a coupe of days ago...he has convinced himself that, notwithstanding his local government 'malaise' his party will now select him for State level politics*.

So if he used an airplane holding a banner would that be "DeAth from above"
