Ireland South debate May 20, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Anyone catch the debate last night on RTÉ with the Ireland South candidates, and what did people make of it. A good report here, but here’s a question, how much – if at all – do such debates shape voters votes?


1. NFB - May 20, 2019

On a purely anecdotal basis, I find the most common response from people when you talk about RTE debates is “Everyone was talking over each other”. The GF was disgusted by a recent Radio One debate with the Dublin candidates for that reason, and there was no one she found impressive. I think a debate format that was extremely strict on rules, speaking time and not allowing candidates to speak over each other would be very useful in the run-up to votes, but I suppose it might not be the kind of carcrash ratings grabber tv stations need it to be.
