In a party political broadcast tonight PM Gordon Brown invited viewers to text Gordon to 60022 and send a question that he would then answer via the Labour website. The answers are by way of a badly produced video where sound is a little all over the place but who cares about those fine details.
The key question is, are these real viewer questions or the ones GB wanted to answer? Is this an opportunity to appear to speak to viewers while answering the questions he wants to answer, so making statements by the back door? Or is this real interaction between the nation's leader and its people on the issues that concern the latter? Finally why is GBs mike so far away???
P.S. love the way the 'tough', 'people's' interviewer backs up GB, especially on how good policing is in her area under Labour!!
