Midweek YouTube - what the British voted for in 2005

Or at least some of them did. Does it still seem like such a good idea, 'comrades'?

All political advertising is of course completely over-the-top 'optimism', or for the 'attack' variety it tends to be unrelieved gloom and disaster.

In any case I think it will be interesting to compare Labour's message last time around with what they come up with when they next present themselves to the electorate; I suspect there will be a fascinating change of tone, not to mention a radical rewrite of practically everything they (and those who voted for them) foisted upon us in 2005; the choice of background music and sound-effects will be particularly instructive.
