    The Leaders Debates – Election 2010

     Posted in Politics at 15:53 on Thursday, April 15th, 2010 by Mr. Rant

    So the election campaign for the 2010 elections kicked off last week with all three main parties agreeing to a series of Live Debates to be held on consecutive Thursdays in the build up to Polling Day on May 6th.

    Tonight see’s the first of these debates on ITV, produced by them live from Manchester. The format may seem a bit cooky but damage limitation is what’s being aimed for with these events. They’re structured so that the Leaders don’t get carried away with what they say so they ultimately stay on topic.

    It will be interesting to see the differences between the styles of the leaders. Gordon Brown is notoriously old-school in his leading style, whereas both Nick Clegg and David Cameron are younger and somewhat hipper, or at least that’s what they’re aiming for – it remains to be seen if they’ll be found out as the typical politicians we expect them to be.

    Personally I don’t think it’s gets much better than having all the Leaders on edge as they’re grilled by an audience of ‘average, demographically diverse people’, of course it’s likely that the audience have been vetted in advance to ensure there is limited unrest.

    We’ll see what happens expect a full review here tomorrow and also a running commentary on my Twitter feed.
