Do you have difficulty sustaining your election?

It is unfair but then you could argue that the third party in such a debate gets an unfair advantage by being "not the top two" in such a situation.

Rather they didn't have them at all to be honest.

In general I agree with you. I've never bothered to watch them, I'd rather go off manifestos than whether or not they sweat under TV lights (cf Kennedy & Nixon).

But I'm almost tempted to watch tonight. Bros* vs Corbyn? Could be a completely hilarious car-crash

BJ: Well, uummm, Corbyn perpetuates the super-annuated inexpedient postulations of the umm cabal of cantankerous marxists who have been incontrovertibly rebutted and his election would be a cataclsymal tragedy for this stupendous union
Corbyn: Oh speak English you toff cnut

I hope someone somewhere has done a Boris bingo card.

Oven-ready Brexit, anyone?

Labour would
"take back control" under a new business model if Labour wins the election.

In a speech in Westminster, he [McDonnell] said company boards would include workers and elected members, giving them greater influence over pay structure.

And public sector chief executives would not be allowed to earn more than 20 times someone on the living wage.

That would mean a maximum salary of about £350,000.

As the median salary for a chief exec in the FSTE 250 is £1.68m I think we can safely assume that there would be no large company HQed in this country if Labour win

£30bn+ of corp tax for the top 100 of those gone overseas

At least it solves the problem of taxing the super rich. There won't be any left paying tax in this country. So that's 27% of income tax gone too

That''ll learn 'em

What has the salary of a chief exec of a ftse 250 company got to do with a pay cap for public sector chief execs.

My mistake, because some of the rest is about publicly quoted companies I read that bit as that as well.

I didn’t think it could be possible to hate Corbyn more but this debate is succeeding.

What a weasel cnut. Refuses to give a straight answer to a simple question. Will you campaign on Leave or Remain? And the interviewer let him get away with it. Hate:

Thing is Labour's position on Brexit isn't that complicated. He should be able to explain it.

But then he struggles to compete with Johnson who is just terrible. What a fcuking shitshow.

The Conservative Official Press Twitter account renamed itself factcheckUK during the debate

It's like they don't even care anymore about pretending to be honest or decent or fair. I'm baffled why anyone would vote for them.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/emilyashton/co ... actcheckuk

Twitter has warned them if they do that again the account will be suspended.

The lies are as instinctive, as incessant and as unconvincing as my daughter's explanations why she hasn't tidied her bedroom.

The lies from all the parties are terrible, but what makes that Tory "Factcheck" one worse is that it is so fcuking stupid.

Did anyone really think that they weren't going to be find out?

I think he might’ve had a neurological event. He’s definitely got a Fresnel prism on his right glasses lens. This means his eyes are unable to maintain fixation, if new means something has happened to damage the coordination of his eye muscles, like a stroke, for example.

Ah, quick google suggests there are signifiacnt rumours that way so I guess they have.

Hadn't heard that before

ETA Labour have previously denied that he has had a stroke and say that it was just a weak muscle

It is a weak muscle but why has that happened. There are a variety of reasons from minor to severe but there’s clearly a new problem as I haven’t noticed him wear a fresnel prism before. Not that it impairs his ability to do his job. He’s incapable anyway, though possibly less incapable than Boris on lasts nights display.
