Just picked up on this video on Recess Monkey. The clip relates to the fact that many of Cameron’s Shadow Cabinet have refused, upon being asked by their leader, to give up their lucrative second jobs. Not only has Alan Duncan MP, the Shadow Business Secretary, not given up his nice little earner, but he has also opted to miss Cameron’s tour of the regions and go on a luxury skiing holiday!
The charm of this video is that it is clearly amateur and put together quickly and yet is very poignant and witty. It goes to show you that you don’t need lots of money to make a relatively powerful piece of political advertising. The levity of the tone, the humour of the copy and the curtness of clip means that it’s the exact sort of thing I’d send to a friend.
