The US mid terms are around the corner, and the UK media has been working itself into a bit of a frenzy about all of it – well, it’s one of the few elections elsewhere conducted in English and there’s all that old rubbish about the special relationship, and Iraq of course. But I’m not going to go into these matters in depth – I have little clue about US politics. I would instead just like to point out this list of the 10 worst, most sleazy mid-term campaign ads that a friend has sent on to me. The site is Canada – sour grapes? Anyway, if you thought UK political campaigning was bad, try some of these.

This morning’s obligatory Wolfsburg pic. Inc. an electric van built by… StreetScooter I think!
