    Not sure that the audience was an equal split, additionally Fiona Bruce’s innate hostility to Boris shone through loud and clear.

    You been smoking something? He looked like a lost boy at times and the questions were very weighted so easy answers. Boris did ok nothing special I gave it a draw. Swinson was oh dear, she was ko’d on her feet, she should have thrown the towel in. Sturgeon did what sturgeon always does and that’s talk about only two topics remain and independence.

    There were no Unionist Jocks in that audience, full of NATS. Shocking from the BBC not to have any, so she could've been exploited from their angle..

    Swinson was truly awful - there sure wasn't 16% current polling supporters apparent. Think Boris in the end, sort of just kept his head above the water line. Corbyn was very calm & collected, but apart from a couple of testing questions, he wasn't given a particularly hard time with the audience. But when you've not been in government for a while, promising the world & intend to tax the kind of people, the left leaners were wanting to hear, it was only going to be..

    Sturgeon - less said better...

    Not sure about poor Jo - she's made her bed...

    The Scottish lady as you put it, was not really challenged, no unionist Scots represented...

    Why doesn’t anyone ask her why Corbyn should cave into her demand for a Referendum if he were to form an Administration with her MPs?

    Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas....

    If Corbyn agrees to a Referendum, and if she wins, SNP MPs would leave Westminster, thereby immediately meaning Labour’s majority disappears and Boris/The Tories would take over....

    Think I posted something similar couple of weeks ago, that Corbyn could get enough seats and form a government with the SNP. Feel there's a shift change happening this week for the Labour party, I'm expecting their polling rating to increase a fair bit in the next few polls. Their spending & anti-austerity plans will resonate with so much of the electorate. The Tories shot themselves in the foot over 'factsheet.com'. Pritti Patel over that Barrow episode. Raab, 'people not giving a toss'. All they had to do was not fvck up, let the media/public unravel Marxist McDonnell's spending plans. They are fvckin retards (Conservatives).
    She has uttered recently (wee Jimmy) that it wouldn't be a coalition, but some sort of deal, suppose like the Tories/DUP. However, it's not 10 DUP MPs this time, it's possibly 50 SNP in Westminster. She could have him over a barrel, just so he could get a working majority. Think her 'ransom' will be a little more than the DUPs £1 billion!! Your right, if she gets her Indy2ref, he would lose his majority. But these 2 parties will do anything to stop the Tories. He said tonight, not in the first few years of office, but a day is a long time in politics, god knows what could happen in a couple of years. I personally, don't want that SNP separatist near anything that's to do with UK politics. Trust Corbyn before I'd trust her & that's saying something...

    I think that Labour will be gaining support from the Lib Dems - the more people see Swinson the more they dislike her.

    Boris’ best hope is that Farage gets greater exposure so that he can win Labour seats in the North and Midlands - I fear that Wales will again blindly follow the Labour shilling...

    Gawd help us if Comrade Corbyn gets in.....

    I agree about the Swinson factor, but also feel the waverers teetering over the edge to desert Labour for the Tories in the Northern heartlands/Midlands, initially due to Corbyn & Brexit, will now have their heads turned by the traditional Labour policies that they know the Tories can't respond to. Nine years of government with all that austerity is weighing heavy. Labour know they got to talk about anything other than Brexit, otherwise their 'neutral' policy will be constantly exposed. So it's talk of spending on underfunded services, NHS, Education, poverty, homelessness, ridding us of Billionaires, tax the top 5% etc. All of a sudden, feel Boris for the people against the EU elite has been vaporised!! Boris needs to stop beating the drum of getting 'Brexit done', think it's starting to back-fire now!!

    Not sure what to think of the Farage effect now. The fact he's pulled out of the conservative held seats, not sure if the momentum will be still there for him still in the Labour leave areas...

    Don't think anyone on here is as full on for Boris as you portray. Think if individuals on here saw valid politicians/policies in the Labour Party they would say so.
    "This is the reaction Corbyn got, boos for Boris".

    Grow up, there's left leaning bias across the whole media spectrum. That wasn't a proportionate electoral audience tonight. Look at the separatist SNP lovers & Swinson haters alone there. I can't stand either, but I actually felt, people get her out of there (Swinson), she was getting mauled..

    I actually thought Corbyn did ok (for the record), even allowing for the weighted audience..

    See that Labour / Momentum’s Rent-a-Mob was present - the politics of envy is alive and well.
