The leaders' debate is dissolving into a consensual mush over long-term care now so I can round it up - pretty much as expected. Clegg probably came off best because he was very much on an equal footing with the other two. Brown and Cameron have very different styles but they both got a lot of points across. And that means, I think, that Clegg and Brown both get more out of it - in terms of net gain - than Cameron. Brown because he was expected to be crap and was actually OK, and Clegg because nobody can really call him a Mickey Mouse minor-league politician after this.
The Guardian tracker gave Nick the lead on the instant track, but their Twitter feed suggests that this was because a lot of people from Lib Dem central office were pressing the 'plus' reaction button on Clegg a lot. Well fair play to ya guys, but it does mean that any post-match statistical analysis will be worth sweet FA. Dunno if I'll be tuning in for the other two.
(By the way, with reference to my previous post, there ARE going to be Scottish and Welsh debates - next Tuesday - but no sign of a UKIP/Green/BNP debate.)
