The Media Serves Nanny
Sad to see that during this period of great electoral "excitement" that certain sections of the media (not just the shouty tabloids) have become obsessed with the party leaders' wives, and what they are wearing.
I understand that at least one shouty media organisation makes a daily phone call to each party HQ to ask what exactly the leaderenes will be wearing that day.
Now call me old fashioned, but would it not better serve the voters' interests if the media focused on policies, candidates and the key issues?
I have no doubt that the parties are delighted to avoid the hard questions by providing fashion information in excruciating detail (after all they have been very keen to parade the ladies in front of the media). Doubtless they feel that by pandering to the perceived "aspirations" of the "mumsnet" target demographic they will swing the election.
However, the unholy alliance between the media and the parties is doing an incredible disservice to the voters.
Is it any wonder that we have ended up with the dismal choice that we are now facing?
