Most polls are reporting that Clegg was the clear winner from the TV debate tonight, and rightly so – Clegg was the only one (as usual) to answer the questions whilst the other two leaders bickered with each other as though they are in a failing marriage. Brown consistently addressed Cameron, making out that it is a Labservative election. Wrong, as shown by the feedback tonight, this is a three party race.
As Clegg remarked:
“the more they attack each other, the more they sound exactly the same”
Brown and Cameron really showed their true colours, for one – they both lied. For example, take recall; they are both promising it now, but both the Tories and Labour failed to support the LibDem’s bill so that recall would have been available for the public NOW! The same goes for political reform. We know about Cameron’s lack of commitment to political reform, but there was Brown again, trying to strike a claim that they are the party to vote for to initiate political reform. Well, how about the last 13 years? If you cared about that so much, why haven’t you done so when you had the chance?
Whilst Brown was orienting his comments towards Cameron, I think both Cameron and Brown need to be aware of the rightful recognition Nick Clegg is gaining and will get in the last remaining days of this election – the LibDems are not a wasted vote!
