The Lib Dem manifesto is the one with the fewest clichés

The people at Polifiller have measured the party manifestos against their database of political clichés. This was compiled with the help of political correspondents, editors and opinion formers.

The exercise produced the following league table:

Conservatives - 200 clichés
Labour - 58 clichés
UKIP - 51 clichés
Greens - 49 clichés
Plaid Cymru - 48 clichés
Liberal Democrats - 44 clichés
SNP - yet to publish
Well done to the writers of the Liberal Democrat manifesto. Among the clichés they let through were "package of measures," "those who need it," "there is more to do" and "a return to boom and bust".
