Electoral Propaganda Grammar Fail

Today I received a National Party flyer in my mailbox which claimed that "Labour =  Less Jobs".

Because "jobs" is a nebulous, non-discrete thing that really depends on how you look at it, kind of like "security", "growth" or "ultra-fast broadband".

Shouldn't it be "fewer jobs". I voted Green anyway. And proudly let them use our fence for their billboard.

Yep, that was the grammar fail :)

I recall something similar last time around about "less bureaucrats".
