(UK) Conservative Party Manifestio as an ebook

Also only a PDF...

http://www.conservatives.com/Policy/Manifesto.aspx

Although interestingly, they provide it in two versions, one with high-res graphics (77MB) and one with low res (3MB).

Unfortunately, some graphics that should be vector graphics are bit map graphics, and are over-compressed in the low-res version, making them almost unreadable.

A rather disappointing showing. The Labour Party PDF was only 2.3MB, and all its graphics were perfectly legible. Although it did really only use them for full page chapter headings.

Excellent Matt cartoon in today's Telegraph.

Added: Interestingly, the Conservatives pbook version has been published as a hardback for a fiver. First time I've seen a hardback manifesto. Proves they're not completely spineless I suppose.
