    Oh really? What's awful about them? I think they represented themselves really well tonight!

    What did everyone else make of the debate?
    It was a train wreck but who would expect anything else?

    Sturgeon was the clear winner. No wonder the SNP are doing well in Scotland. Cameron and Miliband held up OK, though nothing special. Wood and Bennett demonstrated a great ability to make sweeping statements and promises without much substance. Farage didn't do too badly though his xenophobic HIV rant on the NHS question was pretty stupid. Clegg did well but wasn't really challenged as the other party leaders had bigger fish to fry.

    As they showed last night, if you're not Welsh you might as well not exist.

    Sturgeon seemed to barely mention Scotland outside of her opening and closing speeches, whereas Wood only seemed to talk about Wales. I suppose that's the problem with inviting parties that don't run nationwide to a national debate though.

    So I still haven't watched the leaders debate because I was out, but this is what I've heard:
    Greens & Plaid - pretty bad
    SNP - incredible
    Labour - better than usual but still not great
    Lib dems - did they even do anything
    UKIP - disgustingly racist as expected
    Tory - as expected

    Fair conclusion? Will give a more in depth reply once ive watched it later

    3/4 of the way through...

    Plaid Cymru - It's just annoying she only cares about Wales, she's not going to win any votes with that

    SNP - lol I wish I could vote for them

    Labour - I think I'll probably vote labour tbh, I just don't like his voice lol

    Green - I didn't think she was toooooo bad, would vote for green but idk about her

    UKIP - lmao who even votes for them jesus Christ

    Lib Dems- idk, I actually like what they're saying... But They're too good to be true and they won't live up to anything

    Labour Vs Green for me (would Lib dem but no hope lol)

    I'm labour vs green too. What did you think about conservatives?
    I think I like plaid cymru cos Leanna Wood was kicked out of the chamber for calling the Queen "Mrs Windsor" and also arrested for protesting against trident :')
    Like I can't ever imagine labour, conservative or libdem leaders doing that :lol:

    EDIT: also, you can only vote plaid if you're welsh, no? I think she did bring to light that in a lot of ways welsh arent given the same resources as english which isn't really fair.

    Just 7 bull****ters bull****ting

    I'm glad UKIP seem to have come out worst though... Not that it will stop the kind of people voting for them from doing that though.
    Haha, fair enough. Would you prefer a different type of political system, then? Yeah the kind of people that woul've voted probably would've liked a lot of the things farage said, unfortunately.

    Haha I thought it cute how the three male parties were j trying to damage eachother as much as possible :lol: She's made me wanna be scottish so hard. I definitely think England needs a party like the SNP. There's a group of labour/green voters who would much prefer it, I feel.
    Yeah that's the problem I have with the Greens. They have great ideas about where britain should be, but seem a lil naive as to how we'll get there! It's a shame tbh.
    I thought farage didn't have enough to bring to the table- his only points were immigration and EU which I think the majority of voters disagree with.

    I didnt even notice that? She was talking a lot about Scottish politics, perhaps it was that Leanna Wood was giving welsh case studies?

    I won't lie about it, I'm probably one of the most clueless people on politics and how it all works :lol:

    If there was a system where politicians had to follow up on what they said they were going to do, then it would be that one

    I just disagree with not taxing the richest more or MNCs, so wouldn't vote for them even though I am in line with them it seems for things...

    Haha I just think Plaid need to make themselves more like SNP. Yes we want to help Wales and make it equal and strong but not be seen to completely disregard the fact we are in the UK.

    You can vote if there's a rep there I think. Which I doubt. Just like I doubt there is an SNP campaigner here in the Cardiff regions, so unfortunately I can't vote for them :lol:

    I just wish Lib Dems hadn't been **** because they're middle ground seems the best plan. Even though it may be too good to be true like I've said.

    Politicians may be the most powerful people (fundamentally, practically the fundraisers are), but that doesn't mean they have the power to do everything.

    I used to (a couple of years ago) think I would vote Lib Dem since I seemed to agree with most of their policies, if not for their terrible leadership.

    Now though, I've shifted quite a bit farther to the left so I would have to reevaluate my position on them.

    I'm about halfway through watching it. I won't be voting anyway but it's still quite interesting.

    Miliband - Freaking me out when he stares directly into the camera but he's saying some decent things
    Bennett - Not said much so far but I don't really like her
    Cameron - Keeps talking about the past to deflect criticism aimed at him
    Farage and the Welsh one - Not even worth talking about
    Sturgeon - Making a lot of sense and arguing well, I would probably vote for them if I was Scottish
    Clegg - I'm rooting for him, it's like when the kid get who gets bullied starts fighting back

    Okay maybe it was a bit harsh grouping her with Farage.

    I look forward to it:lol:
