I just watched the UK Green party election broadcast on TV, of course as all of them are it had little factual detail/figures etc, but as a powerful
piece of music and visuals I was impressed.
I was emotionally dragged into to it if I'm honest, combination of the interpretation of a song I love, with classic images of hardship.
You can have a look here below:
I'm not voting Green next week and this thread isn't about the political ideologies, just specifically their marketing style and what members think
Please feel free to post your own here or share your thoughts on the dramatic/emotional style of this one above.
Do election broadcasts ever influence you?
Do they make you think but your mind is made up anyway?
On a wider note, I prefer the system we have compared to the US where big money buys as much airtime as politicians wish.
For the benefit of any US members reading this, UK political parties get an agreed number of free slots on TV and radio decided by Parliament.
It is an attempt to reduce the influence of money on elections, it ain't perfect but I think it's better than a free for all based on money.
Anyway, The UK Green party, if you watched it what do you think?
It sucked me in far more than the stuffy Conservative party broadcasts I've seen recently lol

embed video, sorry
Oh I don't hunt them out, but if they're on I'll watch all of them I see because it is their only few chances to stage manage their own airtime.
If they can't do that very well then bit shameful really. I guess they are all targeting different audiences though.
The conservative broadcasts seem targeted at older voters than me for sure, old blokes in starched suits.
How boring is this, and do you get the same sense of insincerity as I do?

I'll leave others to post anything from Plaid Cymru or the Scottish Nat's, they aren't a choice for me in this election.
Posting the UKIP ones would make me feel even more grubby than I do for giving them my vote to force a referendum.

I'll be voting Green, I don't agree with most of their Greener policies based around the climate change scam but they have good intentions and they're
not Conservative, Labour, Lib Dems or UKIP who are all scumbags.
I also agree with their policy on scrapping student loans and making education free as well as their stance on a basic living income
Well it's not like all the other times I've voted, have all equally been wasted votes lol
Like when I voted Lib Dems because they promised to scrap tuition fees at universities, that was the only reason I gave them my vote, then they ended
up in bed with that lover of pigs Cameron and raised tuition fees and they've never been the same since.
How it should be, but most people...apathy thing, don't know the candidates who are actually representing them locally.
The real people who are accessible to us to call out in person.
The pricks would be rooted out if the masses did that.
