Good speech, shame about the jokes...

Okay, most of them were okay but:

"Zombie government"

Excellent, excellent soundbite for for news...

"a cross between Shaun of the Dead and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue"

Oh dear a clunkly, forced, unfunny joke that relies on a reference to a Radio 4 programme!

Worse than that it was said directly after the zombie soundbite without a gap so it has to be featured in the news along with the good zombie soundbite. Who writes this stuff?

Also, I'm not sure this reliance on "real people" stories really works apart from the disabled kid which , I think, did as it illustrated positive action instead of just saying people have it bad (yes the people you are telling know this and it could come across as condescending).

Apart from that a thumbs up.
