Look, they're all there. Wow. Hope it gets more exciting.
the set looks so dated
it's like Going for Gold meets The Day Today
It's time for you, for you to play the game
Can't receive ITV, and the online stream has no sound?
Dave's face now though.
Brown's opening... shit. Cameron now...
Agreed. Why's Alastair Campbell so over excited?
... a ten year old black boy.
i never though cameron was racist until he went out of his way to show how unracist he is ;)
somthing about being poor what what
....OR manchester city"
good save, clegg.
all this straight head shots, it looks so fake and old fashioned
It would be much better if each candidate had their own Michael Bay-style 360.
i hope the sky debate is more like the EPIC promos they have for wrestling ppvs and big football matches
They should have got the Wachowski brothers to install one of their trademark spiral camera rails.
That must be one hell of an impressive burglar.
he's been watching too much xfactor.
GOD I'M CRINGING.
because he set fire to that
But somewhere's got to have the highest crime rate in the UK. It proves nothing.
I'm glad it's in lancashire
everything's cheaper in lancashire
cams on coke
i'm not really on his side but if he doesn't give more proper answers he's going to get lost
I was hoping for a better debate. Brown is shite.
Gather o ye Vagabonds & hie unto Mister Gordon BROWN'S Club of Youth! #leadersdebate
Nick Clegg met a man in London who had been burgled five times - ONE OF THE TIMES WHILE HE WAS AWAY AT HIS FATHER'S FUNERAL.
A new low for Britain's burglar community.
so it wasn't distasteful when they nicked your stuff. No respect anymore.
than Brown. Though Brown just got a personal potshot in, ooooooooooh.
If Brown felt like prefacing any of his answers with an X-Factor style human interest tale, he might get more time...
Oh shit, abort abort.
"he was burgled WHILST AT HIS FATHER'S FUNERAL"
"thanks to lord ashcroft"
"it's answer time david"
Brown is PREPPED
It's answer time!
How please did he look with that?!
"I was in this place, and this bloke said this, and I said, don't worry, I WILL SOLVE THIS. Vote for me."
the British public is going to lose.
our man talking: he's mint
a bit perhaps, but all this has highlighted for me is how shit a state British politics is in right now. Nobody with a fresh or exciting idea.
John McCain walking round the room looking lost.
NEW HOUSE OF LORDS
it feels creepily like he's talking straight out the tv at me
Now I have. Shit.
Gordon is all over it ME TOO ME TOOOOOOOO
Anyone would think they're both left-of-centre parties...
"Well this all sounds marvellous, you two have some fine ideas...it's a shame it's all LIES!!!"
with the other person's names. MR BROWN! MR CLEGG!
after all these years on about peter and jordan or friday night binge drinking specials or whatever "news" itv farts out this days
I still wouldn't
Were the #leadersdebate to move from Stage unto Tavern, I aver that Messrs BROWN & CAMERON would set about Master CLEGG
Urgh, Cameron is SUCH a prick.
to make him sound like their pal' thing down.
with every word of this
Why do i recognise his punchable face? what a cunt
It's like he's excited every time he hears his own name being said on TV.
it sounds racist. fucking racist cameron
basically, invented by the Conservatives in the 80s as a way of giving their mates governmental jobs but in a way that they have very little oversight.
*invented by the Conservatives in the 80s as a way for specific functions to be carried out independent of the cheap expedient chasing political leadership.
who'd have thunk it?
QC Magazine - June 2010
I think he's winning so far.
I declare Clegg the winner by virtue of the fact that he isn't Cameron or Brown.
(probably not even second, or third...)
JUST LIKE YOU PLEBS!
if the host let him finish.
Clegg getting all the laughs so far
at the end?
Definitely no contradiction there...
"Where are you?" ....urgh.
"where are you? I can hear you but I can't see you"
SkyNewsBreak #itv #leadersdebate who's ahead so far on
skynews.com/itvdebatepolling brown 28% cameron 36% clegg 36% sample=4290
clegg is generalist, defensive, and like his party, full of good ideas but no substance or ability to deliver them.
but he's hardly facing the worlds greatest
what a promise
"Soldier are dying far too frequently..."
They're in a warzone you effing bumlord, what about the tens of thousands of people they've slayed be they innocent or not.
see the bit when the elephant gets lost in the dust, and heads in the wrong direction away from the herd who are all chillin at the oasis, into the dusty wilderness and almost certain death....well that bit is better than the debate so far
NICK CLEGGG ON THAT SPECIFIC POINT
GORDON BROWN, GGGUU-
Calm down, Al.
so when one of the bars gets below a certain threshold he shits himself and shouts out their name to get it back up? I do.
He doesn't wait for anyone to finish, I get the feeling that if the camera was on him when he goes DAVID CAMERON he'd be standing there giggling.
He'd formed the first syllable...
if he just stopped the way the other to do he'd look a lot less sackless
It ws only so long until Cameron started mentioning that fucking list of businesses supporting Tories. They support Tories you fucking prick, not because they "know! about the economy but because they WANT TO PAY LESS TAX AND HAVE MORE PROFIT. It doesn't mean it's a great idea. Twat.
DANIEL GUTTENPLAN! ?

YOU DUMB SHIT
These ones were made in Sheffield, in a factory, where he's been, in Sheffield, where he's an MP. You do realise he's an MP in Sheffield, right?
couldn't even get that right

Let's just hope Kim Jong Il isn't watching.
When we start our nuclear exchange with China, you'll be laughing out of the other side of your face...?
I'd watch that
angry working class northerner asking question
I honestly can't take Clegg seriously. Not because of anything he's saying, but because when he says it it sounds exactly like Paul Merton.
I keep expecting him to go on a surreal tangent, and I'm disappointed... and enraged when he doesn't.
i knew he sounded like someone but couldn't think who...
is that Merton is faking the confused puzzlement that follows everything he says on stage.
Every now and then I'll mix it up with a 'You know what I want to do ...'.
Also, for shame Nick Clegg. There's no need to remind Dave and Gord that you've still got all of your kids. "WHEN MY THIRD CHILD WAS BORN etc, etc'. No class.
how will a national insurance rise take money out of the NHS?
is where the action is, fwiw :D
EASTERN EUROPE IS PRACTICALLY THE THIRD WORLD

Food does exist there, and so does shit. The latter out-weighing the former by a large difference.

BULGARIA?! WOT A DELAPIDATED SCUMPIT!
thankfully we have a reasonably good idea of what terminal diseases kill people
bulgaria are trending actually trending upwards as diagnosis improves
and Question Time on the Beeb at half 10
then i catch up on Outnumbered on the iplayer
all i need is some footy and tonight is perfect
but nick and dave have both torn into him instead
There's a fist fight. He'll wipe the floor with them
I know we all hate Dave, but he's a much better public speaker and debater than Clegg (who looks well nervous) and Brown (who has that awful shit-eating grin whenever he shoehorns one of his awful prepped Cameron swipes into a wholly irrelevant situation). It's almost a shame his actual policies are shit.
he can speak well but if he gets the merest interruption he falls right off track and witters hopelessly
he looks like a Jersey Shore cast member.
I'd do his wife. :|
You agree with me. It's arguing, Brown-style.
joke this is quite an important question
who'd have guessed that Channel 4 viewers would piss on dave?
Only decent thing his done is tell Gordon he doesn't agree with him. Although in Gordon's defence, he countered it brilliantly by more or less saying "YES YOU DO AGREE WITH ME" over and over again.
How did you come to that conclusion?
i'm never going to vote lib dem and aren't particularly keen on him, but to think the forehead or gordon has come of better tonight would be mental.
All he's done is say "but you're lying ... I want YOU the public to be able to sack MPs, like you already can do ... Let's do fairer stuff". He's stuttered, used the wrong words and you can almost see the flop sweat dripping off him. Poor blokes looks like he's ready to vomit.
although using the same policies Kennedy, Campbell or Cable would've absolutely wiped the floor with Brown and Cameron
NOBODY CARES ABOUT THEIR NAMES. IT'S A TELEVISED SHOW.
has begun weakly
dude needed to say something that couldn't have been culled from an Embrace lyric
CARER CARER CARER CARING CARE CARING CARER
A MILLION CARERS
this debate is a success.
and i swear ive seen about 30 people say 'Worst kraftewerk gig ever'
Oh Jesus, is Clegg actually going through with this "Britain has been shit for 65 years - let the Lib Dems take over" garbage?
Does he really think anyone will fall for th-- never mind.
WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH SOMEHOW
what a fucking tit
his spindoctors must be shitting themselves
according to that channel
possess any policies that aren't pure fantasy?
Also his comment referencing Cameron's experience with the NHS was below the belt.
the dis vote. irrespective of your own allegiances or whatever, who do you reckon actually won/lost the most votes tonight? SCALE OF 1-10 ETC ETC ETC
1. clegg +4
2. brown +1
3. the forehead -1
Dave's endless anecdotes were awful
Brown was just a bit bleh
idk who "won". brown i guess, because he didn't reel off endless stories like some kind of orange Abe Simpson.
cameron 1 or 2
i hope it's Huw
plus he'd either interrogate each of them himself or refer to each leader as Liberal Democrats CLEGG Conservatives CAMERON Labour BROWN
dave gets nick back on stage while gordy goes off into the crowd shaking hands with anyone/everyone.
On a lighter note I believe there should be some kind of conglomeration of the parties. Or nuclear armeggedon, either one would solve the current shitstorm that is THE MODERN WORLD.
MASSIVE WOE :(
cameron: what? shake their hands? but they could be poor....
Can't believe how bad Cameron was.
Very annoying voice.
clegg scored the easy points off them both but that was about it
cameron was appalling
tory will stay about the same
libdem will shoot up
labour will sink a bit
will be between Nick Griffin, Howling Laud Hope and that guy who wants to save Kidderminster Hospital. Essential viewing.
there are Scottish and Welsh leader ones early next week.
why are they bothering to ask anyone from one of the parties - what do they think that lot are going to say?
black man vs colleges of crime
he was struggling for what to say most of the time, and his answers were mostly extremely hollow and lacking in substance.
Also: He allowed Brown to piggyback on his answers ("I agree", "Here's where we're similar") thereby planting the idea that the Lib Dems and Labour aren't so different on a lot of key issues (so maybe if you like the Lib Dems, vote for Labour!).
The first time it happened, it was like "fair play, Gordon." The second, third and fourth time, it was like "fuckssake, Clegg. Tighten up!"
And now people on QT are criticising Brown for it - saying that it shows he has no policies of their own.
Face in my palm.
however, cameron was close to losing it at times
the Lib Dems definitely won. "Gordon" is already set in stone, forehead came across as even more of a human-form Daily Mail by way of blue sky management consultant than even i thought possible, and Nick Clegg made me think "huh.. so that's what he looks like". And he actually played the populist/man on the street card rather than patchouli swilling hippie Liberal. Well, for the most part
i just hope a few people pick up that D-Cam communicates almost entirely through his bum
"It's just like the X-Factor, BUT FASTER." Oh FFS.
Clegg will definitely have done the best out of it, just 'cos it's put the Lib Dems in the limelight on an even par with the Tories and Labour in a way that never happens in the papers.
Cameron was probably the biggest loser just cos the election's his for the taking and he's failing to capitalise.
Brown sounded good but you'd hope most people'd be a bit skeptical about him affirming his commitment to causes he's failed to do anything about during the last term.
Even more obvious.
absolutely the most obvious
Dammit. I should have been all over that.
...doesn't feel as good as it should. :(
didn't even attempt to bend the rules like the others.
Shame he's a robot.
Cameron by contrast gives the best delivery but gets owned on the issues. Now that his party finally has policies it's nice to have it pretty much confirmed that they're basically cuts to public services disguised as "efficiency savings". He can only do badly out of these debates, methinks.
Brown held his own but had a couple of notable fails on Labour's record (democracy springs to mind immediately).
and the woman from liberty
He's a gormless idiot, it'll undo any good Brown might have done on the debate.
I think I've seen more Gove than Cameron since the election was called, the guy is a machine.
when does Esther Rantzen enter the fray?
Thought it would be pretty obvious Brown won.
but i listened to it on the radio and it was impossible to differentiate between clegg and cameron's whiny oxbridge accents
with a leg for an arm and an arm for a leg
more chakrabarti and farage
Sky now has:
Adjusted to take into account of the section of the population who think before they vote.
Why am I only now finding out that David Cameron has joined Westlife?
It's on ITV Catchup.
bad. although maybe they'd actually listen to their advisors, who knows.
Someone's been watching his DVD of The Wire!
with it being so emotive and so many people reading it.
As usual I just went ahead and posted regardless.
Is how going into this debate, Cameron doesn't have a 10-20% lead.
Labour have overspent, been involved with various financial crises, had countless expenses issues, have a leader no one rates, entered into 2 wars the general population disagree with, widened the 'class' gap, banished free education and generally gone against everything they once stood for.
And yet STILL Cameron seems totally inept at building on this barring starting up some Facebook groups and avoiding the majority of the questions thrown at him.
If I was a Tory 'fundraiser', then I'd hire a hitman to assassinate their campaign advisors.
Well done Clegg, thought he largely did rather well as things went on. What difference it'll make locally and nationally time will tell. But if some closet goth can get RATM to Christmas Number One, then stranger things have happened...
"the people want brown out but they don't want cameron in"
the elephant did die after all
I like the summary in the Times
