Party Leader's Debate

Just interested in people’s opinions of which party leader, if any, out performed the others. As a bit of fun I thought it was worth running a poll

Re: Party Leader's Debate

Clegg seemed to repeat the word "trident" often, I think his solution to everything is "scrap trident".  None of the 3 offered anything cohesive, luckily I could tell when they were being obtuse, their mouths were open.  Brown also has this really irritating habit of he talks and then seems that his jaw becomes dislocated so he pops it back it, it's un-nerving.  I don't really feel I learnt anything new from the 3 on show as it were, it was pretty much a disappointment.
Maybe by the time they get on the BBC they will be able to produce policies that are actual policies and not "what I'd like to do, maybe".  It really just descended into 3 grown men bickering.

I was hoping BBC America would pick this up but so far haven't seen it.  Maybe that's because it was the ITV debate wasn't it Undecided

Re: Party Leader's Debate


In my humble opinion, they all have the same policies anyway.
They just have a different way of bringing them to pass lol.
Do any of us not remember how Brown mentioned bringing in
a `voluntary` (but in the next breath `compulsory`) citizen service?
Next thing, we heard no more about it...  UNTIL David Cameron
took up with it just recently.    I`m just stating that as a prime
example of how two political leaders have both talked about that
topic.
Cameron claims that if he gets elected he`ll do abit with most of
the big brother society.  My opinion on that...  hogwash !! rubbish !!
because he wont.    Logic tells me that he`s hardly likely to scrap
all the technology that has already been set into place - even so
far as the Govt putting I.D.readers into shops for the I.D.cards.
In any event, the `control` over us will come from Europe and
not from local govt.
How can Cameron possibly stop the E.U. from bringing in
microchipped passports for everyone as of 2012?
Cameron has no control over the E.U. and neither do the other
two candidates.
This entire comedy of errors is just more bread & circuses to try
and get the ppl to believe that they are in control of things.
I didnt watch the programme - I no longer watch TV anymore.
We just use our TV sets for watching DVDs now.
My only opinion therefore is this :  watch to see if their lips are
moving LOL.

Cant you watch it online artmo? I watched it last night and brown was alright, Cameron was like a rabbit in the middle of a road when its startled with bright lights of an on-coming vehicle, And i just dont get why everyone reckons Clegg was the clear winner last night?? Perhaps because he didnt say all that much, I dont think either should be the next P.M. in my honest opinion.

Shutter should have been on that programme in his capacity as Chairman of the Canterbury Regional Apathy Party, but in line with party policy he couldn't be arsed to turn up.  Wink

Unfortunately not.  I'm at the end of a long beach and the wi-fi signal  drops about half a mile away.  Guess I can live without seeing them  Wink

Re: Party Leader's Debate

I wasn't surprised by anything I heard from the Three Amigos but was surprised to see two of my neighbours sitting in the front row of the audience. My wife was enthralled with this and screamed with laughter each time she saw them.

Re: Party Leader's Debate

They are all the same.
They all want to give our country to Europe, and turn us from a soverign nation into a Euro state.
All 3 agree on allowing foreignors from EU to come and take our jobs as they want to, they all want our taxes pushed through the roof, none of them has actually said they would control the behaviour of MP's any better than they do now, and none of them give a stuff about the average British working class person.
I wouldnt vote for them if my life depended on it!
