Remember how working family tax credits became so potent in 2010?

Revisiting the last election – the final week

With all the argument over working family tax credits I thought it useful to dig up this final week Labour election broadcast from 2010.

They also figured heavily in other parts of Labour’s campaigning over those final few days.

Whether this specifically was effective is hard to say. What we do know is that Labour’s final vote share was higher than the polls were showing and the party did better than expected in many of the marginals it was defending.

Maybe if the Tories had won a few more of those targets there would have been no need for a coalition.
