When three tribes go to war
There will be much brilliant analysis on the many political blogs (see my blog roll), so I'll leave that to them. I was following some of the comments on the Liberal Conspiracy live blog. Childish though it is, I did like this one:
"Dave thinks he's Moses, but he's actually Bertie Wooster". #leadersdebate
I've found the parts I've been able to watch utterly fascinating. On immigration they were all competing to give the toughest answers, nobody saying anything positive about immigrants - and was it deliberate to get a black man to ask the immigration question? Gordon Brown seemed to be accepting an underdog role which is an interesting, if risky, strategy.
I wonder what the legacy of the debates will be. Will they now become a fixture at each general election? Will Cleggmania come to something? Let the polls roll in now about who 'won' tonight.....
Update: the BBC's Nick Robinson has just said that he thought nobody won except perhaps 'the public'...
