At 14:30 today, the leaders of all four parties, plus the independent candidates, will be taking part in an election debate.

They will first be invited to give an opening statement, then will answer five questions, before rounding off with a closing statement.

This thread is for non-participants to discuss the debate, as posts from non-participants will be removed from the debate thread itself.

I can already tell this comment isn't going to age well.

Thus far we've seen Red under fire, Aph and Jammy agreeing and UU and Petros nowhere to be seen.

I hope I won't disappoint. (Quick note to the electorate - I am not far-right politically, it just rhymes with my username!)

We've now seen Aph call Petros out on his absence - will he rise to the bait?

Was it the Liberals last time too or was it somebody else? I can't help but think it was. Why are they so afraid of debate?

While responses to question 1 die down, candidates are now engaging in a debate on question 2 which has revealed something of a sliding scale of support for individual freedoms being emphasised more heaviily than public safety, with the absent Unknown User firmly at the bottom (advocating totalitarian measures).

Question 3 sees Red under fire once more, and Aph revealing a desire to 'cancel Brexit'. Meanwhile Catus is interrogated by Jammy as to why she believes a no deal Brexit would create more uncertainty than a Brexit with a deal. Petros has been asked more questions, will he appear and answer them?

I just thought I'd try and populate this thread a bit!
Thanks for the Brexit question, we're going to spend another 5 minutes on it which will take us to a full 45 minutes on it!
