I just spend a minute and a half watching Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling talking about the 2009 UK budget, the details of which heâ€™ll be presenting to Parliament in a few days time, on April 22.
What do you think of it?
I donâ€™t know about you, but Iâ€™m left only with one question after viewing this video â€“ whatâ€™s the point of it?
This video presents the topic in such a patronizing way that Iâ€™m left with the feeling that itâ€™s nothing more than simple propaganda, a feeble attempt to present a sympathetic picture of a man doing a difficult job as in a party political broadcast.
This is just like the kind of tame and scripted stuff youâ€™d expect to see in a TV interview. Whereâ€™s the authenticity, the genuine and believable sense of the man? Not in a video like this.
If I want to see such drivel, Iâ€™d prefer to wait until campaigning for the next General Election starts.
Then I can plan for what to avoid, thank you.
