I say this with no irony, but UKIP’s Paul Nuttall was the biggest winner & the biggest loser at ITV’s Leaders Debate
Yes I think Paul Nuttall is a far-right turd & UKIP are a bunch of fascist fucks, but when he was the only rightwing politician on the stage, I fear it might have looked to some that he was getting too much of a bashing & thus he might’ve come off looking like a bit of a victim to some peeps, though he seemed to have only two answers to any question either the EU was the root of all evil or it was immigrants who to blame for everything.
Obviously in the absence of Jeremy Corbyn I cheered on the Green Party’s Caroline Lucas, a politician who I’ve a great deal of admiration & respect for & who I just want to give a great big hug to for all she does, but the biggest story to come out of ITV’s Leaders Debate was where were Jeremy Corbyn & Theresa May?
I don’t care what excuses Jeremy Corbyn & his team have given for him not to be participating in TV election debates with other political leaders, the ITV Leaders Debate was a missed opportunity, I missed opportunity to highlight the Lib Dems are an inconsequential annoyance, to highlight that voting Green where there also Labour candidates will split the vote on the left & thus will only help the Tories, to highlight UKIP aren’t just a bunch of racist xenophobes that there are other sections of society they’re odiously bigoted towards. Particularly considering how viciously biased the mainstream media have been (including the BBC) against Jeremy Corbyn & Labour, the ITV’s Leaders Debate was a missed opportunity for Jeremy Corbyn to champion Labour & its manifesto to millions of viewers.
As for Theresa May not participating in last night’s Leaders television debate, she’s just proving once again that she’s fucking cowardice, she talks tough about negotiating Brexit with EU leaders & yet runs away from debating leaders from other political parties here in Britain! I’ve seen & heard various reports about various news organisations including (somewhat surprising) the Murdoch owned Sky News being obstructed from being able to properly report on the Tory GE2017 campaign. It’s not just Theresa May is dodging the media unless they go softly-softly with her, it’s evident she’s uncomfortable out on the street talking to us mere commoners, particularly when she’s asked awkward questions about disability benefits. All this election campaign is proving is to me about Theresa May is that she’s a fucking coward!
