As someone with a healthy interest in social and political issues, but who is not an avid follower of party politics, I found this film genuinely accessible and entertaining.
The characters featured were at times likable, at other times eye-coveringly true to stereotype, but all of them were extremely watchable and the film kept up a light and pacey tone which reflected its subjects. Daniel's frank and ironic approach to the people he met and to the direction of the film overall was refreshing for me; being used to presenters forcing themselves too much on to their film or trying to drag the viewer down a preconceived track, I found his (for the most part) neutrality, and fairness, appropriate and intriguing.
A definite "yes/no" answer to the Tory-voting question might have rounded the film off satisfyingly, but would not have truly reflected the somewhat evasive approach of the new Tories to hard facts and policies. Overall I felt that the film was a sharp and often amusing look at a topic which too often descends into dryness or hectoring narration.
