The Labour Party have just created an imitation of what a Cameron ‘Shadow WebCabinet’ meeting might look like.
The video takes the form of an msn-style messenger service and includes message entries from George Osborne, Oliver Letwin, Andrew Lansley, William Hague and David Cameron.
The main thrust of the attack is that the Conservative Party haven’t got a clue about what their position is on dealing with the financial troubles facing the country. Not only that but Cameron’s more concerned about being seen to be modern and cool rather than caring about the economy.
There’s some funny digs at Hague for being protective of his after-dinner entertainment and Cameron’s use of ‘street’ language is quite witty. However, the continued attempt to link Cameron with Norman Lamont and the fall out of the ERM is misguided.
It’s not funny enough to go on for as long as it does and contains too many niche references for it to become ‘viral’. But in terms of giving the party faithful something to chuckle at, not too bad at all!
It will be interesting to see if it makes the news media tomorrow.
