Hain's Obama moment updated

That video has been deleted. Surprise, surprise.

According to Aneurin Glyndwr (aka Assembly Labour researcher David Taylor), "Nats and Tories" are to blame:
It's a real shame that these sensitive souls are so easily offended, and find criticism so hard to take!

Funny that, because a lot of these allegedly "easily offended" persons have made copies of the video - just in case it should disappear. In the words of a friend of mine:
...just in case that unforgettable pearl of a video should disappear - depriving Wales' cultural tradition of one of its masterpieces, I have made a copy so that I can continue to enjoy it - over and over and over again.


Here it is again, dedicated to Peter Hain, Eluned Morgan and of course David Taylor.



PS Vaughan Roderick reminds us that the video is also available on the BBC's website.

Difficult to know where to start. Sums up Labour perfectly - shit production value and a lot of lies. It's just shit and i've wasted 3 minutes of my life....

Two words:

Copyright Issues.

Copyright issues don't usually lead to deletion on YouTube. Normally the copyright owners will either disable embedding or add an advert.

David Taylor isnt actually employed by Labour. His salary comes out of Leighton Andrews' allowances...

Simon Dyda said...

He's a member of the Labour Party though, and works for a Labour AM, so "Assembly Labour researcher" is an accurate enough description.

Simon:

My point was that when A.N Other brightspark in Leighton's office pointed out that they didn't have the rights to the song or a load of the images in the song....the best tactic would be deletion....

I'm unable to stop laughing. I shall watch it whenever I'm sad.

@Dave

Ah, I see.

Alan said...

Jeeeeezzzz... what a heap of crap... fuckin dreadful... oh wait - this was produced by Labour???

Nuff said...


word verification : ruormous - almost enormous. Which is what the video could have been... if it wasn't so fucking shite.

Leighton Andrews dissociated himself from it and took offence when I asked him to get comments enabled on the webshite (sic).

I asked him to forward my request to Eluned Moron.

That's excruciating. Absolutely excruciating.

Usual pathetic 'Thatcher's to blame' crap rather than 'we're a bunch of workshy welsh cunts'.
I wouldn't piss on their faces if their teeth were on fire.

This interweb malarkey is amusing. I will change the link to this gem on my blog.

It really is the most embarrassing and 80s timewarp crap.

Pogo said...

Exquisitely awful... But you'd have thought that "the land of song" could at least have found someone who can fucking sing in tune!

Interesting to note that the BBC website publishes a story on a party political attack video and yet fails, for days, to do anything about Dan Hannan's speech to Gordon Brown and even when it does write something it's only because of the viral success. Smacks a bit of editorial hypocrisy to me.

Today the BBC noted the deletion of the video, quoting Aneurin Glyndwr's risible response, yet failed to mention the fact that everyone outside the Labour Party are laughing their arses off at, or how deeply embarrassed Welsh Labour are at it!

Couldn't the labour party find any one Welsh to sing this? I'm not only by the accent's but no-one Welsh would be that out of key.

blogmenai said...

You're wrong my friend.

She's none other than Eluned Morgan MEP - & she's most certainly Welsh.

I am waiting for the joke April Fool posting. Just a minute, hold it, that would be ALL of them.

The beauty of this site is that they can't take it down without admitting that it's a shower of shit (though I am surprised that no-one in the Welsh Assembly labour group has seen fit to break David Taylor's fingers to stop him posting even more of his piss-poor thoughts.

I am pleased that the song has been preserved - it would make a brilliant Party Political Broadcast on its own for Tory or Plaidi.

And as a final thought I think pressure should be brought to bear to get comments activated on the site.
