The only way to win is Essex
While in the Guardian it was "The only way is Essex as party leaders go in search of aspirational voters." The Guardian's Michael White compared the Basildon Q and A session in front of blue and yellow shirted geezers to "the Soviet-era of heroic five-year tractor plans". White contrasted the setting to of the Rose Garden tryst two years ago. "Where better to shake off the taint of matrimonial metaphor and renew their alliance on a more business like footing than in Basildon? No-one goes on honeymoon in Basildon. Southend perhaps, but not to the '60s new town, home patch of the legendary reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex. So Essex it was yesterday." Which is a little unfair, as you can get a room at the Premier Inn at the Festival Leisure Park for just £19 and then visit Bas Vegas. Where better to rekindle Dave and Nick's bromance?
