Gordon’s triumphant return to YouTube

Even Prezza has been taking the piss out of the PM’s inability to pull a human-looking face; but that hasn’t stopped Gordon getting back on the internet broadcasting horse. Our election broadcast has been trailed on t’internet ahead of going out on TV tonight, and it’s actually rather good:

While we’re on the ‘grow not cut your way out’ theme – as you might know, David Cameron has refused to commit to maintaining child benefit and winter fuel allowances at the same level as the Labour Government. Why not sign this petition to ask him – ‘Austerity for who?’

  1. 2:21, “The alternative: public service cuts for everyone”, centers in on a shot of a particular nurse walking through a hospital.
    IS SHE WHAT WOULD BE CUT?
    Or maybe public service cuts were HER IDEA.
    So many questions…

  2. Well, it’s ok. It kinda misses the point of what these sort of vids are meant to be: it’s just a voiceover and some generic “Yeah!” music stuck in front of various shots of GB being GB, with some sped-up shots of people walking around. In a word, it’s a bit boring, and not very convincing.

    As part of my general “just put me in charge” theme, a recent thread on the Labour fbk group (that appears to have been lost in the redesign, grrr) raised an idea of giving a grant to a bunch of young Labour activists who do this sort of thing a lot and just let them go crazy.

    1. Yes, but at least he doesn’t look like he’s having a stroke.

      And – giving money to Labour Students (don’t even pretend it would be anyone else) to make videos sounds…nauseating. Although I’m sure *you’d* be very good.

    True!!

    “And – giving money to Labour Students (don’t even pretend it would be anyone else) to make videos sounds…nauseating. Although I’m sure *you’d* be very good.”

    Well yes, me is what I was thinking! But I genuinely wasn’t thinking about Labour Students, they’re good at campaigning, not video production. I’ve actually been thinking about setting up a company specialising in new campaigning techniques to do precisely this kinda thing, but I’m getting the feeling now might not be the best time to start a small business, especially not one in any way dependent on income from Labour!!
