The latest Lib Dem party political broadcast

This is the party political broadcast we Liberal Democrats put out during our Conference last week.

I have two comments.

The first is to ask whether it would not have been more impressive with real people rather than actors.

The second - more importantly - is to wonder whether people want politicians who will "listen". As Simon Titley points out in the current Liberator, politicians have never listened more in history and have never been more despised.

I can't help thinking that in the current climate we Liberal Democrats should be talking. What voters want is politicians who know the way out of this mess.

The Lib Dems don't have any answers to the current crisis. Not that there is a simple solution - but the Lib Dems talking about increasing taxes on the rich is hardly going to inspire confidence about their ability to deal with a credit crunch!

I completely agree!

And what was the message?

Our narrative is actually coming together rather well . . . but it didn't really feature in this PPB.

I think there were too many talking heads, too many issues and policies. We have enough lists already.
