A Party Political Broadcast

In the UK its illegal for political parties to advertise on television. However, before an election or during conferences of the main national parties (usually the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, Greens, Plaid Cymru, SNP, UUP and Sinn Fein) they are allowed a 5 minute ‘tv spot’ broadcast on either the BBC or ITV just after the main evening news.

Recently, the Conservatives had their turn and what they did rather surprised me…

Its a group of leading Conservative MP’s basically doing a charity appeal. Is it a gimmick? Undoubtedly. Was it unusual and quite refreshing? Absolutely. Will it get them out of their current mire? Absolutely not.
