Strike one to David Cameron. The pictures of Brown skulking into the back entrance of Downing Street avoiding the cameras, while a vigorous David Cameron spoke to an open air audience by County Hall were striking in their contrast. Cameron was optimistic, inspiring and positive. When Brown came out of Downing Street and spoke to the cameras he was almost sepulchral. No optimism, full of negativity and he almost seemed to be going through the motions.
And the BBC well and truly buggered things up with their sound feed. Brown's voice could hardly be heard above the noise of the helicopter. And as soon as Brown finished, their cameras turned to Sky News's Joey Jones! And that was after Huw Edwards told the audience that Brown's motorcade was travelling down the Mall, when in fact it was travelling down Birdcage Walk. Amateur hour from the Beeb.
