I'm spoiling my vote.

Calamitous.

Where's the 'neither' option OP?

Corbyn got ****ed by an impossible question.

Either he refuses to retaliate when a hostile nation launches a nuke at us or he sanctions the deaths of millions of people when all is lost already.

Corbyn did well till he was bombarded with like a thousand questions about whether he'd killed hundreds of millions of people with a nuclear bomb..

It's not an impossible question. He's caught in two minds.

Corbyn dodged so many questions RIP.

But thank **** that girl came out and said "I'm not so sure why everyone's intent on killing millions of people" cause I'd honestly lost faith in humanity considering how much people had a boner over using nukes on every Tom, **** and Harry.

Also saw this amusing tidbit on twitter:

Audience: How dare you not condemn the IRA killers!
Audience: How dare you not be prepared to kill millions of people!

It's one of the first things you must decide as a new PM. He should have been prepared for such questions.

**** me, questions should be screened to avoid the diabolical performance we've seen tonight.

Two things that made me laugh.

Firstly the random guy screaming at May. Secondly the guy in the RL jacket complaining that he may lose his beer money because 100,000s of people want a stable income and to be free from the menace of zero hour contracts

So we should just sit back and take a nuke to the a-hole?

It's a valid question that has been asked several times now, and Corbyn refuses to answer it.

I think you were watching Britain's Got Talent. It was a clear victory for Corbyn.

Please do well tonight, Theresa May.
She certainly redeemed herself after the last one; stayed calm despite some tough questions. Corbyn, on the other hand, had a bit of a nightmare when pressed on the use of nuclear weapons, and was much more evasive when it came to the more difficult issues.

I consider it an impossible question because I do not believe that anyone can know what they will truly do when they are faced with that situation. It is oh so easy to say that what you would do during a Question Time but if there was a Taepodong-2 heading for London, I expect anyone would reconsider their position, regardless of what it originally was.

Far from it. He was bogged down by the nuclear questions and the IRA ones. He kept his composure but it definitely wasn't a victory

I don't understand why you are obsessed by using a weapon of mass destruction which will kill millions and make our earth uninhabitable...

Mate, I think you were watching the Jeremy Kyle show, not Question Time.

"I don't see why everyone is so keen on killing people with a nuclear bomb." Because it means they wont use them on us first.


Sargon said it perfectly.

Bit of a car crash on both sides. But it hasn't made me regret my vote, anyone and anything is better than the Tories.
