This weekend saw the party political conference season continue with the Liberal Democrat Party conference in Liverpool where Monday we witnessed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg make his all important speech to the party since they came to power. WinkBall.com, the UK’s number one video website were once again at the heart of the action and brought their revolutionary video coverage to the Liberal Democrat Conference.
Much debate has certainly surrounded this conference after the Liberal Democrats found themselves in alliance with the Conservatives to form a coalition government after the drama of Britain’s hung parliament crisis in May.
Speaking to Liberal Democrat delegates such as business secretary Vince Cable MP and 2008 London Mayoral candidate Brian Paddick, WinkBall were once again finding out what are the three key issues the government needs to focus on. In addition to delegates, WinkBall also took to the streets to discover what the feelings of the UK voting public were and what they too think are the three key issues the government need to concentrate their efforts on. With all four conferences, WinkBall aim to interview over 10,000 people and create the largest online video survey for UK politics, a feat matched by no other media outlet. With the Liberal Democrat Conference this weekend, WinkBall has so far speaken to over a thousand voices in Liverpool.
With their extensive video coverage, WinkBall be giving a real insight into the world of UK politics and discovering what the man on street is thinking. Throughout this conference weekend, all of WinkBall’s video coverage has been added to the ever growing video mega-wall showcasing the many faces of the UK electorate at http://winkballpolitics.com/. Delegates and attendants of the Liberal Democrat Party conference have not only formed part of this mega wall, they can also see the thoughts and opinions of their party represented on one single video wall at http://www.winkball.com/walls/Conference_Reporters_2010/libdempartyconferenc/
