to the general election, politicians will say and do anything that they think will have an influence on the electorate to vote for them. No real surprise there really! In the Andrew Marr interview with Alistair Campbell it was apparent to me that Campbell was "working the public" with his lip quivering act.
I presume as he is now back advising the current prime minister on media affairs, he advised him to show his "softer side" with the deeply cynical "tears on camera" pantomime. Be prepared for even more cynical vote grabbing in the weeks ahead!
I'm sorry but this is plain vote grabbing. Eight years on and just before an election he's expected to lose. And all because Campbell says he needs to show his softer side to appeal to voters who normally wouldn't watch political programmes.
He's appealing to folk who normally watch BB and other LCD television because anyone with the slightest interest in current affairs knows how much of a failure he is as PM and that NuLabour are soon to move to the other side of the house.
His next move will be to run the election from a TV phone in vote.
GB keeps mentioning things about himself,his rugby injury to his eye,the outburst over his medication and now his emotions about his child's death.Each outpouring makes me ever more determined to vote Labour out,as I do not wish to find out just how low this man will go to try and gain votes.
