Dr Rupert Read, Eastern Region Green Party Co-ordinator
Here is the Green Party's 1999 Euro election broadcast, which was enormously popular. See why, for yourself:

That was great _ I'd forgotten about this - although from 4:27 it goes downhill - I almost voted green because of this.That is actually the best one ever.
It is a work of art and has since been used by the Green Party in Wales and Northern Ireland. It had so many people ringing our phone line that the whole system crashed. It's been estimated that 100,000 people tried to ring in at the same time!The most common comment that I heard was "What the hell was that all about?" Nevertheless, it seemed to work on a subliminal level.Some people would dispute that it was the best ever. What about our 1989 broadcast made by David Bailey? I'd love to see that again. Anyone know where there is a copy? We would probably be done for child abuse if we broadcasted it nowadays.
There is a copy of the David Bailey one on tape at Party HQ I think...I don't think it is on the web anywhere.
