Word for Wednesday: Manifesto

blog home

As the UK election campaign heats up all of the main political parties have launched their election manifestos. It is now the turn of the smaller parties including The Pirate Party who according to their leader Loz Kaye, have the "first crowd-sourced manifesto" in Britain. Meanwhile The Official Monster Raving Loony Party have launched their refreshing 'Manicfesto'.

The first recorded use of the word manifesto in English was in 1620. It is of Italian origin derived from the Latin manifestum, meaning 'clear or conspicuous'. Many commentators would argue that the policies outlined in the recent political publications are anything but.

Here at Spellzone we love the uplifting messages of the Holstee Manifesto. Enjoy!

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
