PostSubject: The UK General Election 2015   Sat Mar 28, 2015 4:58 am

I thought we could use this space to discuss the UK General Election 2015 as it is now a little over a month away.

So to start thew ball rolling, what did we all think of the Cameron/Miliband Q & A session last night broadcast by Sky and Channel 4?

Shame Pax isn't up for election, he was the best.

Yes, and apparently he wanted to stand for the Tories! I'm a Tory myself.

I don't know about the debates. I think the Q&A was interesting -certainly how they'd be seated (or Miliband standing at a rostrum looking like Elliot Carver or Colonel White) and then launch to their feet.

"Is it really that bad?"
"No, but it can be so much better!"

Paxo always seems to be on the verge of pulling his hair out. Cameron dodging questions, Miliband being Miliband. Would love to see him tackle Farage or the Green leader.

Paxman's just a miserable old cunt these days. Needs to be put out to pasture.

Seems to defeat the purpose if the interviewer makes it more about himself than the candidates, no?

Well the interviewer is more important. In 2006, the BBC was robbing the taxpayer of more than a million pounds a year to pay Paxman's salary.

Almost 10 years on, the British prime minister receives just a tenth as much.

Many Council heads receive much more than the prime minister too. It doesn't seem right as he has a very difficult job.

Well they used to say that states only act in their own interests so a return to that is to be welcomed. I personally think that Osborne and Cameron have done a good job with the UK economy when one considers what they inherited from Gordon Brown in May 2010 but no doubt the old 'Blame the Tories' socialist mantra will be out in full swing as we creep ever nearer the day of the General Election. The sad thing is, many voters will believe it and instead of blaming Brown's Labour Government of 2007-2010 they will instead blame Osborne. It's maddening.

this latest debate feels like it should have Bruce Forsyth hosting or William G. Stewart.

Yes, that straight to camera stuff by Miliband grated in the extreme. "The people at home..."

Sort of see based on this performance why Cameron differed and shrank from them. Kind of liked how Farage just stood there for the most part seemingly bemused. Sturgeon like some attack dog, relentless.

She's no Natasha that's for sure. Maybe she's consuming our green house gasses?

30 Days to go then which David Cameron has spent in a whistle-stop tour of the UK (Northern Ireland and Wales).

Dave wants me to have the Good Life apparently. Not sure if Felicity Kendal's up for it though.
