Debate 3

Brown did the mea culpa which appeared genuine and defused the inevitable snide comments from the others. Well done (well scripted!)

Cuts - all about what the others are planning and we are not planning. Still no-one being honest about the depth, even Cameron who professed openness and then moved onto generalities.

"Let's be clear" = "I won't be clear"

Clegg ahead again as the other two resort to general abuse rather than specific policy positions.

The Euro is getting a kick from Cameron as a way of hitting Clegg. They are all mouthing the catch phrases they have learned whether it fits into the actual questions and answer or not. Dull.

Immigration - they are all pandering to the racist tendency. I'm losing the will to live. Am I alone in not having a problem with immigration?

Is it just me or has the entire political agenda jumped very sharply to the right?

Good solid opening and closing remarks by all three, with Brown in finest 'scare the public' mode.

Summary: no mistakes, no inspiration, no clear debating winner. Clegg keeps his high public standing, which is a victory for him; Cameron was bland but unable to properly counter Brown's attack; Brown was dull, worthy and badly tainted by yesterday and his history as PM.

LibDem advance continues, just more slowly, and they will attract the votes of those who want a hung Parliament.
