The second televised debate between the leaders of the three main political parties ahead of May’s General Election was seen by 4.4 million on Sky News, Sky 3, BBC News Channel and a repeat on BBC Two last night. Nick Clegg, David Cameron and Gordon Brown once again answered questions from the audience on a wide range of issues such as climate control, Afghanistan, the Pope’s forthcoming visit and Europe. Last week’s debate between the three was screened on ITV1 and a peak audience of 10 million viewers tuned in with Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, being declared the “winner”. This week David Cameron and Gordon Brown gave better performances but many will argue it was Nick Clegg once again who was stronger, better and more in-tune with the audience. Next week will see the final Leaders Debate before the election and it will be screened on the BBC.
Did you watch last night’s debate? If not is that because you are put off by politics or because you already know who you are voting for?
