On the upper left against the Christian Democrats (CDU [EPP]):
"Wage dumping would would vote for CDU" - "For a Europe with fair wages"
On the upper right against the Left Party (DIE LINKE [UEL]):
"Hot air would vote for DIE LINKE" - "For a Europe of responsibility"
On the lower left against the Free Democrats/Liberals (FDP [ELDR]):
"Financial sharks [i.e. heartless investment bankers] would vote for FDP" - "For a Europe with clear rules for everyone"
And although this is already quite funny and I have been laughing a lot since yesterday, the political competitors and other creative people have been quick to react:
This one is playing with words and a bit difficult to translate. It says:
"If you want a complete wooden post, vote SPD" - "For a Europe barking up the wrong tree"
('A complete wooden post' is the helpless translation of 'Vollposten', which means 'jerk' or 'dumbass' in German.)
This one is much easier: "Nobody will vote for SPD" - "This time again: Voting without content. SPD"
It looks as if this campaign could become funny, so even if not too many people will go to vote, we'll have had a good laugh...!
