Late last year, the Labour Party put out a ground-breaking party political broadcast (PPB) video that shook the Establishment. Even the usually-hostile mainstream media were talking about its communication, its style and its message as frightening to other parties – and wondered how those other parties could compete.
It seems at least one of those parties decided that if you can’t beat it, clone it.
The LibDems’ new PPB has been accused on social media by the maker of the Labour video of copying his work – with scene after scene uncannily similar:
In at least one case, the LibDems even used the same hospital set:
Although slightly different areas are used, film-maker Simon Baker advised the SKWAWKBOX that it was a different view of the same London studio set.
Baker also told the SKWAWKBOX:
I watched it with my mouth open, literally. I mean seriously, they can’t think for themselves at all – and the execution is genuinely terrible, with piss-poor production values.Simon Baker
It’s even got similar music, script and structure. It’s scarcely believable – but it just confirms everything we know about them – and what makes it worse is they’ve used our hospital set – and we’re about to use it again for a new video!
The SKWAWKBOX contacted the LibDem press office for comment on the accusations. The LibDems have not yet responded.
The LibDems have been woeful in every respect since they collapsed after propping up the Cameron government. They clearly still have no original ideas – and their recent behaviour suggests they haven’t even really learned the lesson of their self-destruction when they spent five years enabling the Tories to wreck the lives of millions.
