International affairs – truly feeble. Europhobia, “War on Terror”, Global Warming and the Pope.
I don’t want the Pope here. We’ve got our own Nazis.
Sky director cut to a bloke yawning while Brown speaking. Wonder if Director had that set up, like the Tories laughing at Cameron’s “joke”.
Very sensible question. Sadly nobody has the balls to say the Pope is a nutjob.
Sky director shows Cameron talking straight to camera for long periods, but cuts away continually when Clegg and Brown talk, to chop them up and not show them straight to camera.
Cameron has made no attempt to defend his nutjob allies in Europe.
Cameron still blinking every two seconds. Is it every time he lies.
Brown’s lower jaw keeps diving sideways, which is disconcerting.
Sky just cut away to a line of Cameron supporters laughing manically at a shit Cameron joke. Director knew where they were and that they would be improbably splitting sides. Obvious TV audience influencing ploy.
Brown and Cameron gang up on Clegg over Trident.
Two unbelievably loaded questions so far. One anti-EU, one pro-invasions in the War on Terror. Both selected by Murdoch.
Brown talking about going into Pakistan again.
Brown setting ground to invade Somalia and Yemen. Cameron was “Blown away by the professionalism of our forces”. Yes, so were a lot of Afghan civilians.
Clegg makes no attempt to undermine neo-conservative permanent war narrative. Just banging on about need to be well equipped to fight permanent war.
Clegg weak on Afghanistan. Nothing on corruption of Karzai governemt, drug smuggling, etc.
Sky chose very pointed worded question about invading other countries to “protect ourselves”.
Gordon coming in with prepared line on “Man against boys” theme.
Gordon right about Tory extreme right wing alliances – but not well put in debating terms. Then Clegg comes in and hammers it.
Bit too vicious Nick. It may be true the Tories voted against cooperative powers that led to break-up of paedophile ring, but very emotive debating.
Sky lead on Europe to give Cameron his big populist boost at the start. What a shock. Cameron banging on about referendum. A Tory government has never held a referendum on anything.
