The Youtube War

The Political Betting blog reported the Youtube war 4 days ago, where the candidates from Crewe & Nantwich had all posted their campaign videos and were awaiting an audience. On Sunday the scores were Cons 796; LibDem 469 and Labour on a derisory 181. I wondered if this had changed, had this gained extra hits for any of the candidates. It seems there has been a change but it is a Conservative landslide. Timpson's video has now has 2,996 views, LibDem is 976, Labour now have 811. Does this tell us anything - not long to wait to find out.

The question is how many people will be able to vote in this election.

I think Timpson will win sadly, sadly more for Crewe & Nantwitch as they haven't got another firebrand like Dunwoody who would stand for them and not for the party which in Labour's case is useless at the moment.

A connected point i was going to make was how do you feel Darren about Cameron's smugness over PMQ's this was mentioned as a factor in the past that could in the end turn some swing voters off do you still feel this is possible unlike when Brown started which seemed more likely.

As for Obama Hussien....Who's he? :s

Smugness is never seen as positive, well not sure if I can say never, but I think very seldom is safe. Its like saying 'I told you so', while people may recognise that you are right saying so usually turns people off. Maybe he will get away with it once or twice but making a habit of it is unwise.

I will not judge Timpson just yet, he may make a fantastic constituency MP, and as this is an odd contest, driven by national events, he may have to be to retain the seat anyway - if he wins of course!!
