Tim Nice And Northern
This video is truly brilliant. Tim Farron is the LibDem MP who ousted Tim Collins in 2005, and you can see why. He's now standing to be the president of the Liberal Democrats against Susan Kramer. If I was her, I'd be worried. Forget some of the anti Thatcher rhetoric (I usually try to) in the video, just concentrate on the message he is putting over to his electorate - LibDem members up and down the country. And from what I can see he did the whole thing in a single take. Word perfect. Fluent. Articulate. And a bit northern.
Norfolk Blogger is not a fan of the coalition. At all. He hadn't been intending to cast a vote in the LibDem presidential election. He will now. For Tim Farron. If he can make this video truly viral, Farron may well do much better than many were predicting.
I'm glad to aid and abet him. Not because I agree with all of what he says. But I can recognise a brilliant campaign video when I see one.
