Yesterday saw two very different political images, both of which made me laugh a little.
The first was Gordon Brown’s campaign launch to be the next Labour leader and Prime Minister where he managed to hide behind the auto cue for most of his very good speech where he set out his new agenda with some interesting ideas and some bad news for the Torys as he stole most of their agenda with policy ideas to back it up.
The second image was David Cameron working in a shop. He’s spent a couple of days living with a Muslim family in Birmingham to get a better idea of what life is like for them. A good idea, if a little patronising. The laugh came when he couldn’t work the till while he was working in a shop and admited that his maths was bad as he tried to give a customer change from £5.
An interesting contrast… and choice.
