At the insistence of Prime Minister David Cameron, leaders not only of the significant national parties, but also of the Greens and the nationalists, both Scotch and Welsh, were included in this so-called debate, thus preventing any real one-on-one that could have seriously damaged the Tory leader.
The marginals, all female, filled much of the air time with the usual liberal-left drivel designed to extend the culture of entitlement not only to all citizens but to anyone who manages to set foot on British soil, including healthcare tourists, criminals and radical Muslims with a settler mentality. Obviously the best thing to do with the three of them would have been to tie them in sacks and dump them in the Bosphorus.
As for the males, Cameron’s performance was exemplary: i.e., a suave delivery of the lying bullshit to be expected from a war criminal, Libya-bombing, treasonous Conservative Friend of Israel, bankster-enabling, son-of-a-bitch, Eton-Oxford product with a nasal whine and the look about him of an ill-tempered raccoon.
Clegg delivered the Liberal bullshit with charismatic elan: Wage compression for low-skilled Brits due to mass immigration? No prob., just raise the minimum wage. Yeah, Cleggy, and let ’em eat cake.
Milliband the ugly Jew with a reconstructed schnozz and a weird adenoidal vocal system blathered on in a more or less meaningless but vaguely appealing way. In fact, you could almost like this guy.
And then Farage: not in his element at all, although he managed to inject several facts into an otherwise fatuous debate and even got off a couple jokes. The crowd, hand-picked, no doubt, was hostile, but the punters watching on the tube probably thought differently.
Interesting to watch the closing moments. Cameroon shaking hands with Farage while showing as much warmth as flask of liquid helium; the Green woman, shaking hands with Farage before turning away as if about to vomit; and Milliband shaking hands with Farage as though he accepted the man as a member of the human race.
So, on points, I would rate Milliband the winner, mainly on personality; although Farage was the only one to say anything useful about the questions the public should consider before voting in a general election.
