I assume your a referring to the Labour Manifesto. The phrase is not attributed to any one figure in particular.

It is from when Tony Blair successfully rewrote the party's constitution in 1995 and the phrase takes inspiration from Shelley’s The Masque of Anarchy and its line "ye are many - they are fewer"

For future reference, at what point does a phrase become attributed? Every combination of words has been spoken by someone out of 107 billion people to ever live. Doesn't that mean every phrase/combination of words possible is not attributed to any one figure?

I consider it similar to last terms GE, where the Liberal Democrat’s used the term ********* to Brexit. In that it’s been used by many and banded out.

That’s the issue and it’s hard to provide an answer without a concrete example, it’s something I’d have to consider on a case by case basis.

Other animals are also loved and part of this planet. So are trees and I want to see 5% of all large landholdings planted with trees and hedgerows.

Vote for Barnetlad.

You're not the only one to be affected by Barnet's animal propaganda, he used a picture of my bloody family.

It does indeed look like different parts were done by different people and then stitched together. Frankenstein's manifesto!

(I'll do a full analysis on all of them when I get time)

And just like the RL Labour party TSR Labour have spelt "for the few, not the Jew" wrong.

My analysis of the manifesto designs only.

Labour - Nothing too radical, ticks the boxes for a solid Labour manifesto policy included and looks visually appealing (although text appears quite small for me on mobile so was a struggle to read)

Conservative - Long manifesto looks much nicer appearance wise than the short manifesto we see here. The British flag with text at the top looks like the kinda thing a 47 year old guy on Facebook would make their profile picture, rather than a professional document.

Soggy - Decent looking indy manifesto. I would have used a different font with no border so it's less memey looking but then again that is a big part of Soggy's character so it works for him and is clear to read.

Barnet - Classic no thrills look, saving valuable resources of our beloved environment by making it a text post.

Aph and Catus - same design as last election. They're both solid designs however so I don't see a problem with that.

Liberal Democrat - I like the new look of ours and like the yellow and green combo more than I had originally expected in planning. A fresh, appealing manifesto to be proud of.

Libertarian Party - MUCH better design than last time in my opinion. Clear to read and I like the pictures of people used getting a clear message across which I think the last manifesto failed to do as well.

Not including the Liberal Democrats being my party, my order in terms of design goes as follows:
1. Libertarian - for progression from last election imo
2. Catus
3. Labour
4. Soggy and Aph tied (Soggy for readability, Aph for aesthetic)
5. Barnet
6. Conservative
