In campaigning it’s very useful to decide on a few core messages that you wish to communicate to the public, the media and politicians. Once these core messages are thrashed out and agreed, you can structure your campaign around them – helping to focus minds and ensure consistency. When deciding on a line to take on a particular issue, for example, you can refer back to your core messages for guidance.
Paring your campaign down to a few fundamental messages also increases your chances of making an impact. Keep repeating those messages – remorselessly if necessary – and they’re likely to stick in peoples’s minds.
This made me wonder what the monarchy’s core messages would be. Here are my suggestions:
The people can’t be trusted
Think of some really stupid people. Do you really want THEM voting for your head of state? Thought not.
Let someone else take the blame
Having a say on things like war and international treaties is a nice idea, but these things really are best left to politicians. Then at least you can blame them when it all goes wrong.
Britain is rubbish
Forget about our world class museums and galleries, our stunning countryside and architecture. Forget about all those inventions, discoveries and works of art that the British have contributed to the world. When push comes to shove, Britain is just a bit rubbish. Without the Windsors, the rest of the world would point and laugh at us.
