The Conservative Party have released a widget that counts down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the next general election. I imagine this was produced in the hope that it will be hosted by organisers and influencers in order to serve as a constant reminder to activists about the proximity of polling day and the need for their time and effort on the door step.
I’m not sure how motivating it is as a piece of commincation. A widget that published ‘the line’ of the day, a campaigning tip or an inspiration message would do the job in a more compelling and interesting way.
