Another debate January 31, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

I missed last nights debate, hope to catch up with it today. NFB mentions in comments MM was very tetchy. How was the debate in its totality?

It was awful, so bad I turned it off. Moderators were awful , especially Ivan Yates.

As I said in the other thread, I got through about 15 minutes, and watched a few minutes elsewhere between other programmes. I don’t as a rule watch much of Copper and Yates, so I found the tone from the off remarkable, with the moderators basically shouting at the candidates.

Most of them dealt with it fine, but Martin seemed more easily riled, complaining that he was being interrupted by the moderators within a few minutes. Later he and McDonald had a few go’s at each other about debate courtesy.

My only other comment is that Ryan seemed very uncomfortable. Me and the GF were positing there was something wrong with his contact lenses, he kept squinting or widening his eyes to a weird extent. Is the wearing of glasses still seen as a major problem for a politician’s presentation?

+1 had it on in the background this morning. Jesus Christ what is it like? An absolute mess in every way.

The concept of Ivan Yates as a radio or TV personality reminds me of an episode of Billy the Fish (half man half fish) in Viz comic. His team Fulchester Utd were so short of players for one match that they had to include a masturbating tramp they found outside the ground
