Leaders debate

The leaders debate took place tonight, featuring the leaders from the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, UKIP, Greens, SNP and Plaid Cymru. As I thought, there were too many people taking part, which prevented anyone establishing a strong, clear argument on the topics and putting pressure on an opponent. The opening and closing statements, along with the minute given to answer at the start of each question, were little more than short party political broadcasts, whilst the debate section saw the leaders looking for memorable soundbites and attacking opponents instead of putting forward their argument.
