    This may go down as one of the worst in history….and there are a lot to choose from. One nation Labour? That’s gone out the windows.

    Vaguely amusing by Labour standards but of course they have very low standards.

    People will believe it and vote “Labour”. Hodges is a stooge for the Tories.

    They resort to spoof caricatures because they’ve lost touch with reality.

    Did Ed Miliband really approve this clip or was it made by student interns and leaked by accident?

    Yet again we have Dan Hodges twitter feed being held up as the opinion of someone we should all pay heed to.

    FFS, Hodges is convinced that Clegg trounced Farage in the EU debates and his every column in the Telegraph froths with accusations of UKIP racism to the etxent that he’s slipped his moorings with reality. Read Hodges – he really is insane!

    It would not take a very good scriptwriter to come up with a much better spoof starring Millipede and the Testicular Pair. There is so much more material.

    However, it would not be a very wise move, methinks!

    Another below par performance from Milband.
    Won’t be long before the labour party resort to the Brown tactic of having every MP in the house ask a ‘question’ that just agreed with everything the imbecile says.

    “Mr Speaker can I ask the Prime Minister if he too agrees with me that the leader of the opposition is a thoroughly good chap and his idea of making the Times crossword puzzle simpler so the less agile minded can compete fairly be given the prominence it deserves!”

    If there’s one good thing about this PPB it’s that by doing this, the gloves are off and the Tories should make their next PPB absolutely vicious. Take no prisoners. If they think it’s appropriate to make an offensive reference to Mrs Thatcher, just a year after her death, then the Tories should make some jibes about Benn.

    Labour need a taste of their own medicine.

    Thank you for your thoughts but we will have plenty of work for actors of such high standards.

    Watching this we were really impressed with the way that they caught the essence of the Tory scum that govern the country (until this time next year). In particular we thought that the portrayal of Cameron was chillingly accurate;

    Casualty, Eastenders, HIGNFY, Doctors will be all using this talent, soon.

I quite liked the unpleasant portrayal of the Tories. I’m surprised one of them didn’t eat a baby. However, as an election broadcast I have to say it was one of the worst I have ever seen.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
