    Elections 2012: Will the negative campaigning never end?

    Culture April 30, 2012 11:33 pm 1 comment

    Well, it will end on Thursday I suppose, but it feels never ending. However, it’s not that long ago that Ken Livingstone was making an appeal to keep the election out of the gutter. As it becomes clearer that no one is particularly enthusiastic about Labour’s candidate the campaign is […]

    Labour defends its party political broadcast

    The Evening Standard and various right-wing blogs have attacked Labour for their party political broadcast claiming that the ‘ordinary Londoners’ were in fact paid actors. Labour’s team have come back with this strong video proving that, as you would expect, they used Labour supporters who lived in London and who […]

    Labour launches London broadcast

    Labour launches London broadcast, see what you think; Now this is more like it. Distinctly London, distinctly real and with a strong underlying theme that suggests that Londoners aren’t just better off with Labour, but are naturally Labour supporters. The switcheroo at the beginning changing from a “boring” talking head by […]

    Video: Eddie Izzard on Ken’s Fare Deal

    Long term Labour supporter Eddie Izzard explains why he thinks you should be backing Livingstone at this election. Focusing on fares, again, it’s certainly Labour’s strongest theme for the election and they’d do well to keep at it. The fly on the wall filming style works rather well here, I […]

    Livingstone’s new campaign video

    Video March 25, 2012 9:00 am no comments

    Ken Livingstone’s team have put out a new video promoting the Labour ticket. I don’t know what you think but Ken seems bizarrely down beat and depressed for a video that’s meant to be energizing us to vote for an alternative.

    Video March 14, 2012 10:04 am 2 comments

    Labour have brought out a rather well done video explaining their Fare Deal policy. MP Stephen Pound narrates seemingly on the basis that his name is pound, ho ho, but he makes a goo fist of it none the less. Leaving aside the muzak and clip art noises of oh’s […]

The Conservatives had already announced that they were proposing a tax cut (£3.10/year) and there were no significant surprises there. What the budget showed is that […]
