I thought the most interesting bit was when someone challenged the CONservative guy re. brexit and said "you are allowed to change your mind but you are not giving us a chance to change our minds"

Ash Sarkar vs Camilla Tominey tonight - might liven things up.

Ed Davey is on for dem Libs, and two other no-marks from the other two parties. Pfft.

Usual interminable yawnfest - fell asleep about half way through.

Ash Sarkar, though - what an utter knob.  More interested in trying to bait her opponents than having a conversation. The first QT panellist in history to be annoying before the debate had even started when, on being introduced, grinning goofily and giving a "shaka" sign.  Oh, grow up!

also fell asleep watching last night....caught up this AM.

The final question was far and away the best thing that's been on for many an episode. the bravery of the bloke who asked the question brought a tear to the eye...

Miller vs. Reckless vs. Cleverly vs. some Labour guy vs. some Welsh guy.

I confidently predict the convincing winner out of those will be "vs".

Melanie Phillips is on tonight, presumably in an attempt to make what's become an extremely soporific programme of late a bit more engaging.

Apart from Chucka "Which party am I in today?" Umuna, I didn't really know any of last night's panellists.

I desperately wanted the woman from the Times (or Telegraph) to think about where her sentences were going before she started them. Who does her ghost writing, because they obviously cover a fundamental grasp of the English language.

Tory boy was unable to answer the accusations around the fake Factchecker twitter account and was hopelessly out of his depth when it comes to flammable cladding on buildings - which is strange (and terrifying in equal measure) for the housing minster.

The Labour bloke regurgitated the party line pretty faithfully and strayed into dangerous territory when he brought up WMD in Iraq before the war. Full marks for calling it out. Shame he couldn't say anything in response to the accusations that the Labour manifesto was leading us forward to the 70s

Umuna was measured and generally came across well. His biggest problem is the fact that he's changed party more times than his socks recently...

SNP woman came across best of the lot. No harping on about a second referendum for Scotland and made some valid points in most of the questions.

Highlight was the bloke who was going to pay more tax (if Labour get in) because he earns more than £80,000 a year and thought he wasn't in the top 5% of earners in the country. What a dick.

Yes, and for a guy in that bracket he didn't look particularly well presented. Just saying. :-\

Looked like a builder who doesn't pay any tax (or NI)....just sayin'

Let's hope HMRC were watching...

Or perhaps a trucker working about 90 hours a week. :)

It turns out that (I'm taking this at face value admittedly) the claim that an annual salary of 80k being in the top 5% is indeed a tad inaccurate - it's apparently in the top 3%...  ::)
