Labour Voices video’s repeat virality shows Labour what it needs to communicate and how
One of the last videos made by late Labour film-maker Simon Baker has gone viral for a second time – and shows Labour the message it needs to communicate outside the ‘London bubble’.
Featuring Guy Matthews, it follows Baker’s classic pattern of giving voice to genuine working-class people to speak in their own words and own style about the realities they face.
And it cuts like a hot knife through butter through the veil the Johnson Establishment and media are trying to pull over the truth.
Tweeted afresh by Labour activist @ScouseGirlMedia out of her frustration at the inability of Labour’s centrist MPs to ‘get it’, the video instantly spread like wildfire – just as it did the first time around:
Repeat virality is a rare phenomenon – and the power of this video shows the Labour Party exactly the kind of message it needs to remember and share to win the coming general election.
If Labour remembers its roots – and its middle-class metropolitan MPs get on board or get out of the way of the message – it will be unstoppable. We are many and those of the Establishment are few.
Matthews also published a tweet that went similarly viral last May, cutting the legs out from under the right’s accusation that the left wants ‘free stuff’:
With the right message communicated, Labour wins – because truth shows. The ‘working class’ video by the late and deeply-missed Simon Baker – and the voice of working class people like Guy Matthews – show Labour the way that it cannot and must not forget.
