The Labour and Conservative Manifestos 2017 are arguably two of the most important public documents in the UK these days. I have just deposited the following data on figshare:

Priego, Ernesto (2017): Top 300 Terms in the Conservative and Labour Manifestos 2017 (Counts and Trends). figshare. https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.5016983.v1

I thought some may be interested in practicing some distant reading, or have some fun composing your own Manifesto…
