Both the Labour Party and the Conservatives have new campaign videos out on YouTube for us all to watch – and they provide a stark contrast, for anybody who doubted the differences between the two parties.
Labour’s video provides ‘101 reasons to vote Labour in 101 seconds”, and was launched (predictably) on January 26, 101 days before the general election. You’ll need to use your pause button to catch every single reason, and of course some of them are more relevant to everybody than others, but it’s packed with information about the party’s plans. Here it is – see for yourself:
The Conservative campaign video is entitled ‘Ed Miliband and the economy? Don’t risk it’. Launched yesterday (January 30) it seems to exemplify the Lynton Crosby style of negative campaigning. It starts with six lies about Tory achievements (none of the claims are accurate) before going on to throw derision at Ed Miliband, with no evidential support. Take a look if you can stomach it:
Just on the basis of these two videos, who would you support with your vote?
The negative campaign that relies on no evidence to support its outlandish claims – or the upbeat, positive, progressive and above all reassuring set of plans for a more promising future?
