As promised, The Daily unchained one of our monkeys from their typewriter last night in order to turn them loose on Tory TV, with mixed results. You can see the programme “Your Money” here.
Aside from the chaotic nature of the whole thing – people walking in front of camera, poor sound, and a set stolen from Crossroads – our chimp in enemy territory found it an unnerving experience.
When the debate is so skewed to the right, its very hard to drag it back to normal politics. It is like the left and the right are talking a different language sometimes.
Either way, although Tory TV is a good thing for the hard right, it hardly shows them at their strength. If the right controlled the commanding heights of our country, they wouldn’t need to set up their own propaganda channels to allow them the oxygen of publicity.
The Daily has been invited to send a fraternal delegate to a Tory TV show again soon – what do readers think? Shall we raise the red standard in the heart of enemy territory, or are we giving those Tories credibility by providing token lefties?
