Discovering what the three key issues are from the voting public in this the party political season, WinkBall.com have continued their exciting citizen video coverage at the eagerly awaited Labour Party Conference in Manchester. With thousands of the UK electorate already having their say and becoming part of the UK’s biggest online political video survey, WinkBall have provided an open political platform and forum of opinion via the emotional power of video.
The political scene was undoubtedly in a state of anticipation in the run up to the Labour Conference this September. After Labour’s defeat in the general election this May, the party retreated into a period of reform and regrouping. With the standing down of former party leader Gordon Brown, this led to the much publicized race to elect the new Labour leader which was finally concluded on Saturday with Ed Miliband revealed as the number one choice for the leadership.
Now with a new leader on board, the party looks to take themselves in a new direction and fashion themselves out as tough political opposition towards the current coalition government. With this, they will no doubt look to address to the government the key issues they feel are paramount to the current political climate and today, the media spotlight comes on new Labour leader Ed Miliband as he makes his first keynote speech to the party.
Speaking to delegates such as Ed Balls MP, deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman MP, Sadiq Khan MP, Caroline Flint MP and Labour's mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone, WinkBall were keen to find out what they felt were the three key issues the government needs to focus on. Hearing what the powers that be had to say, WinkBall reporters also took to the streets of Manchester to unearth what the voices of the vote had to say and what they too thought were the three key issues this coalition government must focus on.
With over 3,000 people already interviewed, WinkBall are well on their way to creating one of the largest online political video survey. With their coverage of the conference season, they have delivered a UK wide spectrum of political opinion and painted a meaningful picture of the UK political season that delves deeply and honestly into the mind of the average UK voter.
