Much comment in my absence about the Aneurin Glyndwr video:
Sweet and Tender Hooligan thinks that the site says more about the incestuous, self important blathering of the Welsh blogosphere than it does about Welsh Labour. Maes E corespondents think that it is just a resurrection of the NatWatch blog!
On the whole the Conservatives seem pissed off by the video and Plaid seem to be laughing it off, whilst Labour seems to be torn between supporting the new web way of doing politics and condemning silly insults as counterproductive.
I'm not sure what the fuss is about. The Election Song has a proud history in Welsh politics. In the 1890's the Liberal Party use to have branch male voice choirs to sing songs favouring the local candidate. (Most party branches today would have difficulty raising a duet!)
In the 1960's and 70's the recorded song broadcast on car top loudspeakers was an essential part of every election campaign. Elfyn Llwyd, Elfyn Llwyd 2001 was probably the very last of the type!
Being an old fashioned Old Fart I welcome Aneurin's revival of the political song. It's not amongst the best of it's type, but it is good enough to be the start of a revival of an age old tradition.
Rather than moan about AG's song - the best response by all other parties would be be for them to sing a better song to challenge him!
