Debate

So I guess every blogger and his dog's writing a piece on the UK General Election first television debate. *jumps firmly but briefly on the bandwagon*.

I don't really think I need to say much myself, as it's all been said before, however I would just like to leave you with a comment from Victoria Coren:

One of the most enjoyable things about the debate was the way Alastair Stewart shouted the leaders' names, in order to swap from one to another, and how obediently they responded. ("Gordon Brown! Now David Cameron! Mr Cameron and then Mr Clegg! Mr Clegg and Mr Brown together … Cameron on descant.")

Once Mr Stewart had the trio reacting with such alacrity to his commands, it's a shame he didn't go for the full Whose Line Is It Anyway. I kept waiting for him to shout "Now, in the style of a horror film! Western! Swedish melodrama! Now mention a washing machine!"

Some say only David Dimbleby can handle these debates with style. But I say we should give Clive Anderson a go.
