The First UK Presidential Debate

I noted that Gordon Brown arrived with wife Sarah who follows him around these days like a psychiatric nurse. She could not, however, prevent him coming across as both a boor and a bully with his repeated and aggressive interruptions of the Tory leader. On several occasions, he employed the unpleasant tactic he used in his student days of laughing and shaking his head when his opponents were speaking. However, an assured David Cameron kept his cool and on the key issues of the evening – rebalancing the economy and immigration – emerged the clear winner. I also liked the fact that the Cameron opened with an apology for the expenses scandal that had shattered trust in British politics.
