Gordon Brown embraces exciting new "internet" technology – puts Prime Minister's Question Time on YouTube

Share

gordon_brown_pmq-youtube.jpgThe forward-thinking Mr Brown has just dragged UK democracy into the 21st century today, with the launch of Prime Minister’s Question Time – on YouTube.

The new official channel features an “Ask the PM” section which lets users submit video questions for the cool and connected G to the B, who will then try to mask his contempt long enough to answer them in a future edition.

Users get to vote on which questions the PM answers, so it’s a living, breathing mirror of our political system – only with a lot more people arguing and slagging each other off below each video. We can only pity the poor civil servant whose job is to filter the thousands of offensive videos heading Gordon’s way.

If you live in the UK and want to ask Gordon something serious about taxes on plastic bags or something stupid about what state the curtains of Downing Street are in, get in there now.

  • I knew I should’ve put “forward-thinking” in quotation marks so people knew I was being sarcastic…

  • Dear Tech Digest

    You flatter Gordon Brown. While apparently forward thinking in public, it is a different matter in the ‘privacy’ of his own Party.

    Click on the link and see a News Release issued by Save the Labour Party on Saturday in response to another example of saying one thing in public but micro-managing his Party in private.
