I didn't watch it (far more entertaining programmes on the other channels) but I have just been watching the Sky news coverage of the event and amongst the myriad of polls they mentioned was one which asked how likely are you to actually vote?
Before tonights 'debate' the figure stood at 85%
Afterwards it had dropped to only 80%[:0]
Identikit policies from all three parties leading to total apathy perhaps?
Couldn't be arsed to watch........ waited 'til it finished, then read back through the live blog of it here.
Apparently Gormless Gordon did as bad as expected..... Cameron did fair to average, but got a good 'un in at the end......... polls saying the Libdem's Clegg idiot won it (by being "a chancer, who doesn't shirk the odd opportunistic LIE" & "acting like an wannabe NUS president", to quote some of the comments accompanying it).
heard a local gardener was called in after to clean up all bull ****e that came out of there mouths , they are all lying barstewards who will tax the working man till he cant afford to work anymore , wont and will not waste my time watching these debates , rather watch eastenders and emmerdale .
the manchester freecycle site has a offered post on this morning for loads of bull ****e free to collector
The same way I've decided since I was first able to vote in 1983 - by deciding which local candidate will best serve my interests.
Last nights 'debate' was purely well-scripted answers to pre-prepared questions - nothing but a long version of the party political broadcasts that we'll no doubt be subjected to betwen now and May 6th.
All last night proved was that Nick Clegg can lie just as well as Brown and Cameron can.
some polls seem to indicate that the libdems have overtaken new!labour! in the popularity stakes - now that I would like to see come the election - new!labour! relegated to third with the libdems the official opposition ...... be interestin to see if things hold 'til the election - but we've had 'charismatic' liberal leaders in the past and the party has still done nowt in the election .....
