Another General Election has arrived (a little earlier than planned) and we want to make it more fun. Just imagine for a moment if the political parties trying to win and form a government were cars. Which car would you vote for to run the country?
The Green Party – Nissan Leaf
The Green Party have many cares and concerns, but their central focus is saving the environment. Their leading message is that climate change is the single greatest threat to this planet, to us and our society and things need to change in order to combat that.
With that in mind, we sought around for a viable candidate to stand in the car parliament and we found one. The Nissan Leaf. This electric car produces no carbon emissions and is therefore far healthier for the environment than most other cars. For a party that is so heavily focused on the environment, the Nissan Leaf seems like the best candidate. It is the most popular electric car in the UK. Will you vote for it?
The Conservative Party – Rolls-Royce Phantom
The Conservative Party are currently the largest party in Parliament and form the government. They are seeking re-election so they can implement their plan for Britain to leave the European Union. The UK Conservative Party are the most successful electoral political force in modern history and so finding a car candidate for them was a tricky one.
The Rolls Royce Phantom seemed like an excellent candidate. It is a quintessentially British car and the first one was launched way back in 1921. It is one of the oldest car brands in the world. It is seen as being affordable to a small few, but it delivers well in all the right places when the time counts. The question is will you vote for it?
The Labour Party – Ford Fiesta
The Labour Party is the official opposition and their main focus is equality and social justice. They want to help those they deem cannot effectively support themselves without help. They want to help as many people as possible.
There were many discussions over the candidate for the Labour Party, but the same answer kept coming up. The Ford Fiesta isn’t anything flash, but you see them everywhere and have been growing in popularity since 2013, in the same way, that Labour’s membership has grown in recent years. However, there is a new Ford Fiesta coming out later this year… could the same be said for the Labour Party?
Will you vote for it?
Liberal Democrats – Vauxhall Corsa
The Liberal Democrats were clobbered by their opponents last time around and almost lost it all. It took them a while to find their groove again, but now they appear to be in resurgence. The question is can they make a real difference?
Their candidate was easier to choose. The Vauxhall Corsa attempted to copy their opponents and fell from grace. However, they decided to go their own way with a larger hatchback model that is far more attractive and reliable than its predecessors. The car has made a real comeback. The question is whether the Liberal Democrats can do the same. Will you vote for the Vauxhall Corsa?
Scottish National Party – Skoda Citigo
The SNP have almost all of Scotland under wraps. However, they can’t grow outside of those Scottish borders and therefore are hindered by location. They have one reliable aim and make many attempts to achieve it.
Their candidate had to be small, somewhat reliable due to their success last time around, but only good in one place. The Skoda Citigo is great in towns and cities and is relatively reliable. However, they do struggle on the motorway compared to their larger rivals, so they prefer to stay within their own borders. Will you vote for them?
The official General Election takes place on the 8th June and if you support any of these parties, maybe you should consider these cars as well. Most of these cars are available through car leasing and you could drive away and show your support in no time. Enquire with us and our staff will find the best deal to suit your needs.
