The battle for Mayor online....

Did anyone else recieve the Saint George's Day email with the below link in it (I included it in my earlier post as well).....

It would appear the English Democrats have taken their campaign to the web for the upcoming election and released a cartoon for St George's Day.

This makes me wonder if we are going to see much of the battle for Mayor take place online, much like Ron Paul's campaign in the US?

The English Democrats aren't the only party to start using animation to promote their message, the Green Party designed the whole of their party political broadcast in a Flash animation style format which can obviously easily be transferred into a web medium.

The advance of web campaigning I believe is going to make it very difficult in future for polling agencies to really get an idea of who will vote for what!
