I was alerted to this from Iain Dale's blog. Normally you wouldn't find me advertising Labour's election material, but I strongly urge people to go take a look at the above site to see just how comical Labour's advertising has become. I'd be annoyed at the 100% negative campaign they are running if it wasn't so downright funny! For the Labour party of all people, who have Tony Blair in charge of their party and have done for over a decade now, to accuse their rivals of having a chameleon of a leader is about the most hypocritical thing I've seen… Well, ever really. I find it strange how Labour's main election strategy for years now has been of mud-slinging at the Conservatives; surely having been in power for two terms now they should have plenty of success to promote instead. If the best the party machine can come up with is this campaign, I suspect success stories are even thinner on the ground than even I thought.
In case anyone is interested, you can compare the Labour campaign above against the Conservative one here. Solely on the strength of these campaigns, which would get your vote?
