Today I offer to my dear readers the opening advertising gambits from both sides of the political street so that we can discuss just what sort of message is in the pitches being presented by Both Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard. I am genuinely interested to hear just what you all think of the both the style and the substance here.
Personally I think that Abbott looks stronger and more genuine and that the ad from the Libs has more substance and is more positive. On the other hand Gillard looks just a little too contrived, the string of pearls strikes me as an allusion to the prototype female Prime Minister Margret Thatcher. Abbots delivery of his lines is well modulated and convincing where as Gillard gives us a dreary monotone in an effort to appear more substantial and serious.
It won’t surprise anyone that I rate Tony’s And as being better. Gillard is to some extent hamstrung by being unable to cite the record of the Labor government she has been part of so all she has to go on is the rather twee reiteration of Labor’s 2007 pitch.
Anyway you judge and give us your verdict in the comemnts
