Three days before the General Election, the Conservative Party’s BSL manifesto FINALLY appears

Posted on June 5, 2017



We reported last week that after initially saying they would not produce a BSL manifesto due to “time constraints,” the Conservative Party (who were the only party who knew when this election would take place, let’s not forget) had finally said they would produce a manifesto accessible to BSL users.

Today, with just three days left until the election, the BSL manifesto has finally appeared. You can watch it via this link (which sends you to this page on YouTube).

The BSL manifesto follows a campaign by Deaf activists, many of whom sent the party their own BSL videos with the hashtag #MyBSLQuestion.

This leaves UKIP as the only main party without a BSL translation of their manifesto.
