The YouTube context for Labour on Iraq

Tony Blair has launched a YouTube channel for Labour. I have left a comment on the Official Secrets Act and Peter Kilfoyle but don't expect an answer any time soon.

On Blairwatch, Davide Simonetti claims the numbers are low for most Labour videos, with better results for his own channel recording demonstrations against the Iraq war. I have to say that the Tony Blair intro is doing better from what I can make out. However through a George Galloway sample I found several others. His US Senate evidence gets the highest numbers of all, way off anything on the Labour site. This may change over time, of course.

Galloway is explicit about calling the case for the Iraq war "a pack of lies".

Whatever opposition in the UK comes up with the problem for Labour seems to me to be that most US opinion is now anti war, including many Democrats. This is reflected on YouTube. They may try to continue avoiding Iraq as an issue. Simonetti points out there is nothing on their site so far from the Foreign Secretary.
