Damn! I'm 15 minutes behind!

Clegg's looking strong.
As is Bennett.
Farage isnt looking too bad.
Ed Milliband is looking weak.
David Cameron looks scared.
Sturgeon and Wood are ridiculous.
Sturgeon has been OK. I'd happily see her in Number 10 if she dropped the nationalism.

Talks sense on the NHS. I disagree with her on the deficit. If the SNP dropped the nationalism, a LabSNP or LabSNPLib Coalition would certainly not be a bad thing.

If she dropped the nationalism the SNP wouldn't be getting many votes.

My initial conclusion at the hour mark:

Natalie Bennett - F (effective sweeping statement ability, sadly little substance especially on the economics of what she's promising)
Nick Clegg - B (strong start but rarely challenged by the other parties who had bigger fish to fry, abstract claims on occasions)
Nigel Farage - B- (started off well on the deficit, went seriously downhill with his immigration rant on the NHS)
Ed Miliband - C (decent start carrying momentum from last week, but more of the same rhetoric from the last debate)
Leanne Wood - U (just lol)
Nicolas Sturgeon - B+ (clear, effective and confident. A very respectable performer who currently appears to be the strongest)
David Cameron - C (hammering home the Conservative message as expected. Still waiting for something new tbh)

I'd question that, though it depends who pops up in favour of independence instead.

Explaining forming a majority in the Commons to my 11 year old brother. He didn't really believe that one party could ever get 326 seats.

Cameron started out okay, but he's just become completely lost and anonymous

I've gotta say, I really like Clegg's policy on housing.

Clegg asked Miliband to apologise for what Brown did, because Clegg can't face the backlash from what he himself did. The man voted for the policy - he folded as an MP, not just as a party leader and DPM. He's got to go and come May 2015 I imagine he will go.

Surprising that it's taken so long for a heckler to make a fool of themselves.

As someone said on Twitter, Nick Clegg's just invented the mortgage.

I especially loved the question on fracking whilst Natalie was talking about the disappearance of vertebrate species.
