Tory and Labour leaders clash in TV debate – and Corbyn walks it

Did anybody really think Boris Johnson would beat Jeremy Corbyn in a televised debate? Well, he didn’t!

Mr Corbyn’s calm, confident delivery trumped Mr Johnson’s bluff and bluster in a confrontation that was all over long before the end credits rolled.

This Writer was contributing to the Twitter debate, and you can tell how it was going from some of my comments:

(Here’s another good comment on that.)

Here’s my snap verdict:

And I wasn’t alone:

In the end, discussion dissolved into ridicule of Mr Johnson’s repetitious verbiage:

It seems likely Mr Johnson wishes he had been!

    I found the whole thing pretty disappointing really, a waste of time. They didn’t exactly get down to the nitty gritty, no in depth discussion or heated exchange about the things that matter, the devastating effects of Austerity and Welfare reforms, the millions living in poverty, the disgraceful rise in foodbank use, the Benefit Sanctions, the miserly amounts of UK Benefits, the rise in Pension age, all the suffering, misery and deaths, the WCA /PIP debacle, the lunacy of sending 60 odd year old men on Back-to-Work courses at the taxpayers’ expense, etc. etc. Not to mention the huge increases in the wealth of the rich, or the £16 Billion recklessly spent on Universal Credit during Austerity. I would have preferred to have seen them arm wrestling or having a cage fight, or just Boris being repeatedly punched in the face by the entire population of South Yorkshire, one at a time. But that’s just me. Angry? much?
