Now in the midst of this the political season, the nation’s four main political parties – Conservative, Liberal, Labour and Green – have been voicing their opinions and sharing their views to their party’s membership through the platform of the party political conference. Cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester have been the epicentre of political activity with keynote speeches from party members, fringe meetings and in-depth hustings that explore and discuss the issues that dominate the UK political scene.

WinkBall.com, the UK’s no.1 video site, has been at the heart of the action throughout the political season and brought their revolutionary online video coverage to conference and given the public a unique stage to express themselves and have their say through the emotive power of online video.

Speaking to the public, party delegates and journalists in mass force, WinkBall has created a unique video snapshot of political opinion in Great Britain and conveyed its story through the medium of video. With this wide and far reaching coverage, WinkBall have delivered an extensive and varied spectrum of political opinion that paints a distinctive and insightful portrait of UK political opinion.

So far WinkBall have spoken to a number of key politicians the likes of the coalition’s Business Secretary Vince Cable MP, Liberal Democrat peer Lord Ashdown, Labour MP – and London’s Mayoral candidate against Boris Johnson – Ken Livingstone and Green London mayoral candidate Jenny Jones AM (London Assembly Member). They are just a few of the many delegates WinkBall have given the opportunity to speak on behalf of their party and furthermore tap into the constantly evolving power of social media.

Commenting on the current issues that are prevalent within the state, delegates remarked about the many problems that face the country at the moment, which include the economy, social equality and issues of fairness. Former Liberal Democrat Leader Sir Menzies Campbell MP stated that, currently, “The core issue for any politician at the moment is the economy. We’ve got to restore economic stability.”

WinkBall’s video coverage of the conference season so far has given a deep and valuable insight into the world of UK politics and its coverage has gone straight and deep to the core values and issues which dominate.

Already having covered the Green and Liberal Democrat Party Conferences, WinkBall are currently in Liverpool for the Labour Party Conference where party leader Ed Miliband’s speech was undoubtedly a huge topic for discussion. And of course, WinkBall will be in Manchester for the forthcoming Conservative Party Conference; the final political hustings of this the party political season.
