“Truly extraordinary speech by fearless West Indian woman in face of #Hackney rioters. Pls watch” says Matthew Moore of the Telegraph who videoed this excellent riposte to the looters in the London riots.

Viral Campaign by The Electoral Commission
Like most Student Unions, we used to elect our ‘President’ and National Union of Student reps via the Alternative Vote method. If you voted for a mainstream candidate, say Labour or Tory, you’d place them in first place and, more often than not, a joke candidate second.
In our University that would mean the wonderfully attired Dalek candidate won every time. All well and good, a salutory lesson in politics and no loss to anyone really.
Problem is, what happens when you roll out this loser-comes-first system nationwide?
Yes, you guessed it, the joke candidate gets elected.
Step forward Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Viral Ad for Action Aid
A change from the usual pile-em-high technique of the increasingly salesy viral ad format, here a group of prominent female celebs give up some time to promote the thoroughly worthy ‘International Womens’ Day’.
Get Lippy Girls!*
* Is this an inappropriate forum to mention that we go slightly wobbly at the knees at the thought of the rather scrumptious Sophie Ellis-Bextor and enticingly mischievous Miranda Richardson in high gloss pout-mode? Thought so…
Joanna Lumley, Kathy Burke, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Beverley Knight, Annie Mac and Miranda Richardson mark the 100th anniversary of INTERNATIONAL WOMENS’ DAY on March 8th 2011 by letting rip on women’s rights for ActionAid’s GET LIPPY campaign.
*Shot by celebrated photographer Rankin.

Today hundreds of thousands of British students will be taking to the streets in London and beyond, occupying college buildings and dodging police kettles.
Their common cause? Fury at today’s House of Commons vote which is set to see dozens of Liberal Democrat MPs openly betray their election pledge on student fees.
Student revolt is nothing new of course. This video documents campaigning Californian students in the 60s and 70s. You get a nice rock/hippy soundtrack to boot.

Viral Ad for ActionAid
Fine viral, with a nasty sting in the tail. Still – I do fancy a beer right now…
Grolsch’s owner SABMiller is avoiding its taxes around the world, by siphoning profits into tax havens.
They’re the world’s second biggest brewer, making profits of £2 billion, with headquarters just off Park Lane. The taxes they avoid in Africa could put another an extra 250,000 children in school there.
When big companies avoid their taxes, ordinary people end up paying more. That’s why ActionAid is launching a campaign to make this company schtop tax avoiding.
To help us expose these shady dealings we’ve made a spoof ad for Grolsch. Please help us spread the word and force this company to clean up its act.
It seems stand-offs are all the rage at the moment. Be it North Korea v South Korea or ‘Kettled’ Students v Police.
But here’s the one that grabbed our eye, plucky cat v nasty aligator and his scaly mates.
Here’s a video of a nude protest in Berlin by the radical group Hedonist International.
In case it all seems a little baffling, let’s explain what’s going on. These naked young Germans are protesting at high rents for flats and apartments in Berlin. The protests take place at viewing days for properties in the German capital. So when ordinary punters turn up to view the flat, the well endowed girls and boys from Hedonist International show up with their naked bodies on view. To spare their dignity they wear mouse masks on the their faces.
The protest in this particular video takes place in Kreuzberg – a borough in Berlin with a long history of anarchism, radicalism and squats.
Censor Note – The original video we had on this page was removed from YouTube as it was against their nudity clause. This special-effects version seems to get by their prudish censor.
Thankfully there’s now an uncensored version on Vimeo:

Steady on the fratricide, eh brothers?

Following on from his outburst at Labour’s Alistair Campbell, here’s Adam Boulton at it again, this time his target is Ben Bradshaw.
Move over Nick Clegg and David Cameron, the real bruiser in this election campaign has been Sky News’s political frontman Adam Boulton, here exploding at Labour’s Alistair Campbell.
He appears to have thrown all impartiality out of the window in advance of Sky’s rumoured intention to follow it’s sister broadcaster Fox News to be a self-avowed right wing TV station.
