Is this video too hard-hitting?
« on: 20 Jun 2013 09:16PM »
Someone recently pointed me to this video about George Osborne on Youtube:

Some might think it rather hits below the belt, but personally, I think it's a fair assessment of this government's treatment of the sick and disabled.

What do people here think?

Spot on as far as I can see.

I saw it some time ago and bookmarked it for linking.  I wish it had gone viral.

I agree.  And also very poignant.

I saw this a while ago.  It isn't too hard-hitting, I think it was restrained actually.

I think if they did a new version with a clearer image and text (I found the way it dissolved distracting and it got irritating) then it could go viral.
Look carefully at the avatar, note what's barely visible in the gap in the rings.  I've highlighted it for you.
