Just enjoyed watching some Labour propaganda about David Cameron

see link.

I don't care for any them but this signals a more aggressive approach.

Will labour put in as much effort to sustain the faltering jobs and housing market??

Saw it after the news. What a complete waste of time and energy. Pathetic.

Wasn't there a website advertised on the tv ad too, summin like davecameleoncameron.com To me it shows how childish the labour party are. Even my mum said "is this for kids".

The Labour Party.....didn't they used to be socialists?

About twenty-thirty years ago, this is the 'champagne' variety of socialist. However sleazy the conservatives got last time, they weren't anywhere near as bad as Brown and Blair. Hypocrites, shocking hypocrites.

Their campaign against Cameron is lame. I hate this personal rubbish. The Labour marketing people should be ashamed of themselves. It's just as bad as the "devil eyes" thing that the Tories did (in '97? or was it 2001?).

I take your point, but we all REMEMBER those devil eyes.

Maybe they were just a few years too early with them.

TB appears to be working for the dark side.

No, their main effort is back-stabbing each other now.

Blair hates Brown more than Cameron, he's determined to pass on a poisoned chalice so he lingers on knowing the bad times a cometh.

Still, should be interesting to see Cameron face Brown at each PMQ session.......zzzzzzzzz

I believe they did, until they got the taste for blowing innocent Iraqi children to pieces........ and poisoning them all with depleted unranium dust for good measure.

Maybe, but at that point he was less tainted. The problem with devil eyes is they could mean anything. Is it the diabolical minimum wage you are attacking, or TBs devilish plans to bomb iraq, or is it the satanic opposition to foxhunting? Attacking the person rather than the policy smacks of someone desparate for power at any cost.

Even when the 'person' is a psychopath like Blair? Do you really want 'voices from God' running the country?

Forgot to add, remember "there's only one loony left" from the '87 campaign I think? Okay, that was personal too but at least it was clever and funny. This chameleon crap is so lame, it's embarrassing.

There was nothing in the advert to explain just what labour was offering to their voters. Perhaps they have nothing good to offer and have decided to go with, " if we concentrate on slaging off the opposition then the average voter will not notice that we don't have a plan to get the country out of the mess we put it in", approach.

They did, then they found the third way, which then became just neoliberalism.

Margaret Thatcher was once asked what her biggest achievement was, she replied New Labour.

Personally that is one aspect of Blair which really annoys me. It is a personal attribute yes, but it has influenced govt. policy no doubt as well.

But, will the Tories or anyone else run a campaign "don't vote for Blair, he's a religious nutter"? I don't think so.

Much safer to just attack him generally without being specific, as Labour is doing with Cameron.

It seems strange that Labour have chosen to compare Cameron to a chameleon.Their own leader became a MP in 1983, presumably supporting a socialist manifesto that including withdrawal from the EU, and unilaterel nuclear disarmament.In fact Blair was a very vocal member of CND.

No wonder he always grits his teeth when he smiles.

Thought Dave sounded like the sort of bloke to vote for...

;-p

It said nowt about labour's policys at all which I think is a big mistake for them.

I hope to bump into a labour party bod over the next week or so :)

Labour have policies? I thought they were just a bunch of crooks out to make as much money as they can from the British people.

I haven't seen him smile in a long time. Last time I looked he was sweating buckets on tv tonight. :)

Still its nice to hear Karma Chameleon by Culture Club again after all these years!

One final point - the Tories cannot win the next election as under the current electoral system they would need a 10 percent lead over Labour. Even now they are barely up by 2% if that.

Lib/Lab coalition in 2011 is my bet - which is why Labour are not being rude about Ming Campbell (but then the Lib Dem leader unlike Cameron does actually believe in something). Tories a green party - don't make me laugh!

I really like this ad campaign, although not for the reasons that Labour would want. I think that the chameleon is really cool. Better than that frog. It makes Dave accessible and fun! Most people don't even know what a chameleon is anymore, they just see a cool multicoloured slightly chubby lizard on a bike. Great graphic design, serious semiotic failure on labour's part. Ah well. Promote a facile population then rue the day :lol::lol::lol:
