Election 2019 - The TV Debates

Recommended Posts

 

The first debate, between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, will take place on 19 November, and will be broadcast by ITV at 20:00. 

 

Sky News has proposed a debate between Mr Johnson, Mr Corbyn and the leader of the Liberal Democrats, Jo Swinson, to take place on 28 November.

 

The BBC has announced it will broadcast two election debate programmes, as well as a special aimed at younger audiences. Its coverage will include:

 

22 November: A Question Time Leaders' Special at 19:00, hosted by Fiona Bruce. Conservative, Labour, SNP and the Lib Dem party leaders will take questions from the audience

29 November: A live debate from 19:00 with figures from the seven major political parties in the UK - Conservatives, Labour, Lib Dems, Scottish National Party (SNP), Greens, Plaid Cymru and the Brexit Party

6 December: A live head-to-head debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn. This will be hosted by Today presenter and former BBC political editor Nick Robinson from 20:30

9 December: Emma Barnett will host a Question Time Under 30 special, focused on an audience made up of young voters. It will be broadcast from 20:30

I am hopeful that Corbyn takes Johnson to town about Russian meddling, Acuri and all his lies and general shitness. That said I know full well its just going to be infuriating watching the fat cunt lie and shout his way through the programmes repeating "get Brexit done" over and over until everyone gives up. The questions will no doubt be pre-selected in favour of the tories. Particularly the BBC debates. 

 

I'm glad Swinson isn't on the main ones because quite frankly what would be the point of having her there anyway.

Not at all, I think a lot of people who miss the parliament stuff and a lot of the conferences because they are working etc need these debates. The blatant bias within them is shite though. I just hope Corbyn gets a fair crack at Johnson.

 

I'm really worried at how angry I am going to get.

Nick Clegg looked really good in these once and then the Lib Dem’s lost seats. 
 

I would like to see Corbyn tie Johnson in knots though. Shouldn’t be to difficult.

I remember the ones when Cameron got the Tories (and sidekicks) into power. Cameron stood up straight, looking smart and speaking with authority. Gordon brown slumped over looking like he had been on the ale all day.

I think it's nice that ITV are giving a chance to the parties that finished third and fifth in the last national election.

And the only two parties capable of winning the proper election. 

 

You won the auto-glass trophy lad fucking deal with it. Everton of politics.

Boris will act the buffoon, Corbyn will look like a geography teacher that's flummoxed by his bluster and both will come out looking shite but people won't care or they'll big up their chosen teams performance. Thats my prediction anyway. It all seems a bit pointless as this is a brexit referendum. I'll swerve it.

I don't think its good business for the ITV to have someone who murders squirrels for fun on prime time tv anyway.

If you wanted to see a debate between Farage and Swinson to work out who the next Prime Minister is going to be, I can help you with the answer to that?

Unless there's some seismic event involving the tories, I don't think these debates will make a blind bit of difference on how the vast majority are going to vote. 

 

Jennifer Arcuri could leak photos of Johnson doing her from behind while he's lighting cigars with £50 notes and he'd still get the vote over Corbyn.

I think there should be two debates:

 

1. A head-to-head debate between Corbyn and Johnson.

2. A head-to-head debate between Farage and Swinson.

 

That way we’d have the last two elections covered.

Apparently for tonight, half of the debate is going to be dedicated to Brexit. Lols. Could they be more transparent?

One thought about the debates- they were started in 2010 when Brown agreed to them, presumably in desperation as he probably decided he had nothing to lose. Cameron dodged them in 2015 (at least in the 2010 format), as there was no advantage to him taking part in them. May swerved them in 2017, again she had a substantial poll lead (and was a terrible performer anyway).

 

So why has Johnson agreed to them? He has an apparently large poll lead so there's little to be gained there. If he thinks he's going to come over well, he's deluded, his unscripted appearances so far have been woeful and he's spent a large part of the campaign hiding away, I'd imagine on the orders of Cummings. Is he maybe worried that the lead in the polls is soft and wants to make sure it's shored up? Or am I grasping at straws here...?

Only half? Oh, it's cute they're pretending this election is about anything else.

We’ve had two polls on essentially Brexit and Leave won the last one by a landslide. How many more votes do we need on Brexit!?

Oh, you're back to describing 30% support for the Brexit Party as a landslide. Retro.
