    Has anybody else seen it this week?

    I normally am all hunched in my chair cringing when I see Cameron smugly rip Miliband into little bits.

    But I know a good few here watch it weekly, anybody see it? Finally seems Ed has his confidence and is on a true offensive. Even in recent interviews he has come across a lot better.


    Watch here:

    Anybody else notice this? Watching that, to me, he actually looks like a leader.

    Cameron never 'rips Miliband to bits'. Don't focus on the overblown rhetoric and insults. Focus on the policy, and Cameron desperately trying to avoid answering questions - Miliband is the better of the two at PMQs. He's smarter. Cameron is obtuse and loud.

    I haven't seen it yet but if he is sounding like a leader then good, taken him long enough, now to come up with a solid plan for the future and maybe Labour will have a chance next election.

    Miliband is actually known for screwing up the policy parts though, often during PMQs Miliband will try to match Camerons ability to be able to quote statistics and fails saying the wrong thing and in turn allows Cameron to walk over him.

    He has improved noticeably. He's still not an excellent performer, but Cameron has gone from almost always being the "victor" to merely winning perhaps a slight majority of the time. I think that the mild improvement in Ed's personal ratings since late December last year can probably be attributed to that. Mind you, only letting the other person win a slight majority of the time is not fantastic, and he has some way to go.

    Ed is always fumbling his stats up, trying to copy Cameron.

    Cameron has more charisma and wit, can get his point accross much better. And answers head on most of the time.

    But in the minority that he dodges a question he really does dodge it. Whereas Ed is kinda consistant with half dodging and half answering.

    The main problem Ed's got is that he's directly responsible for the cock-ups Cameron is now admirably trying to sort out. Even on the Holy NHS; a Labour centre-piece if ever there was one, Miliband is incapable of winning the debate because he's allowing failed left-wing dogma to get in the way of common sense.

    The coalition do need to be held to account, but not by Labour. They're useless.

    No he's not. You've just made that up - Cameron is constantly found by factcheckers to be lying, whereas Miliband uses genuine statistics.

    Cameron usually resorts to 'left wing', 'weak' or 'your brother'.

    He's pathetic.

    Not true - 'Miliband is incapable of winning the debate' - actually, he is winning the debate, in case you didn't notice :rolleyes:
