Has the Conservative Manifesto bored you already? Want to know how to get the gist of it quickly while having fun?

  1. Download the PDF of the manifesto. It's on their website.
  2. Pick a pair of opposing words. Maybe legal and illegal, euro and pound, Labour and Conservative.
  3. Use Acrobat's Find tool to count the ocurrances of each word.
  4. Draw wildly speculative conclusions from your results.

For example, one party leader is mentioned six times while another is mentioned just once. There's no 'personality politics' here.
