I have to admit, I think this new widget by the Labour party poking fun at Tory hypocrisy is rather amusing (via Tom Miller). New Labour have been quietly developing a whole host of online widgets, which aren’t bad. It won’t help them win the election though, will it?

That…is awesome.

Still quite funny though! The Lib Dems’ online buttons are slightly more mature.

Me thinks they’ve been taking their cue from the excellent 236.com’s IM send-ups. Did Labour’s staffers do anything except follow the US elections all summer and autumn? I know I didn’t

.I do hope not, otherwise Rick Astley (or whatever that month’s meme is) will win by a landslide.
The first one at least is just a gag that only the relatively politically savvy will really get, and I’ll wager that they’re more independent or already committed than to be swayed by a widget.Oh, and only die-hards, probably with die-hard readerships will embed the widget on their sites or blogs. Not a bad gag, but not great campaigning.
