INSIDE POLITICS - Labour's latest internet video
This is the fourth in a series. This blog also featured the first. They are very sparse, spartan in image but very effective.
The same can't be said for the Labour political broadcast showing tonight on RTE. God, it's depressing. You'd feel like crawling into a hole like hearing all the stories of misery. And then Super Pat arrives into some park to smile beatifically at all those sad groups of downtrodden commuters, young couples, carers etc and suddenly everything is better.
Reminds you of the music video for 'Big Me' by the Foo Fighters. Everything is going wrong and the world is getting you down. But when you pop a minty sweet (I think it was Mentos) everything becomes right again.
