Scully on Tweety Hall

Among the hard slog across my ward and the rest of the Borough, I met Arun from Tweety Hall who interviewed me outside my house about social media and how it might affect this election. The interview looks very professional, so well done Arun.

I'm not convinced that this is anywhere near the 'Internet election' that some had hoped for, heralding new media as a game changing force. However, Twitter in particular has proved to be a fast way of spreading news and giving momentum to stories that may have been lost in a small diary column in a newspaper.

You have to laugh though! For all the continual nonsense about "change" and "we're all in this together" and "things cannot go on like this", after 13 years in embarrassing opposition, the best you lot can muster is about 35% in the polls.

Hardly a ringing endorsement for Cameron et al is it?
