Separated At Birth?

Did anyone else notice the similarity between tonight's first ever TV leadership debate on ITV1 and the last ever concert by The Three Tenors? Are they by any chance related?

Love the idea - DC certainly looks as if he is singing an aria in that shot - I felt he pulled the short straw as "piggy in the middle" and he looked very worried at times.

I've pretty much made up my mind to vote Labour now. I don't think some of the things I feel strongly about would've happened under a Tory government (minimum wage, gay marriages, fox hunting ban), so better the devil etc... I still have a problem with Brown, but Cameron is even worse, a slimy little creep who reminds me of Blair. So there! : )

When voting for "Dave" just remember that he and many of his shadows were members of the Bullington Club.

The Bullingdon Club is a socially exclusive student dining club at Oxford University, without any permanent rooms, infamous for its members' wealth and destructive binges. Membership is by invitation only, and prohibitively expensive for most, given the need to pay for the uniform, dinners and damages.

Not so different from the Socialist Workers Party then after all!

Oy! I take issue with that! The SWP may be full of middle class twots, but I don't recall any 'destructive binges'!

I am almost with you Peter. Labour without Brown and Darling would probably get my vote. As it is for the first time I have no idea at all who I want to go for.

I seem to remember that Placido won that sing off too

Some folk really are gluttons for punishment. Whatever DC or NC may or may not be, the thought of another five years of Brown, the insidious Mandy, bully boy Balls, the pink faced postman, escalating national debt and further corruption of our electoral system as advised by Unite leaves me cold. If a new government takes over they would have one hell of a mess to sort out but in five more years of NuLabour I doubt there would be anything left. Not even benefits!!

But at least we'll still have gay marriages & a fox hunting ban.

The real gluttons for punishment are those with short memories who think the Tories are the boys to sort it out. It's terrifying that anyone would consider that a good idea but each to their own.

Somebody has to sort out the mess and the choice is limited. Under our corrupted electoral system the Liberals are not going to form a government, every coalition in the past hundred years has collapsed within one year and so the choice is Labour or Tory. If you vote in another Labour government that will probably be the last truly democratic vote you will ever get and the mess continues with even more arrogance from Brown than before. Might as well stick your head between your legs and kiss your rear end goodbye.
