‘I wasn’t impressed’: party leaders react to ITV election debate

November 20, 2019


I think people at home will be forgiven for
thinking, surely we deserve better than this? There was a huge gap in that debate. Both of them want Brexit and yet the
voice of remain wasn’t there. There’s no question Jeremy Corbyn
is a better debater than Boris Johnson, but on the key issue of the day, Brexit,
nine times Jeremy Corbyn would not say as prime minister in a second referendum
that he calls whether he’d back leave or remain and that is a failure of leadership. I wasn’t impressed with either of the leaders
and I think the big takeaway for Scotland from that debate is that we shouldn’t allow
either of these men to determine our future. We’ve got Boris Johnson who wants
a hard Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn who can’t even tell us whether he’s in favour
of leaving the EU or remaining in the EU. I can”t believe that neither of
those two leaders brought up The most important issue that
we face alongside Brexit. I think it’s outrageous. Everyone must have been
at home crying out for Caroline Lucas or me or Jonathan Bartley to be there
to hold them to account to bring up this most important issue. The young people that are out on the streets
literally begging us to do something about this must be feeing so let down.

  1. The working classes from northern and midlands town's, once dyed in the wool Labour Party supporters will not be happy with Jeremy.

    However the metropolitan middle class and the studenty hipsters in the big cities will love him.

    He might just pull a rabbit out of the hat this election…

  2. British Labour like the Australian Labor parties are no longer for the working citizen. They are for the inner-city, affluent, champagne-socialists. It would not be surprising to see Labour loose badly.

  3. Remain didn't need to be there. When Leave won the election, all the parties should have been fighting over how they will each deliver Brexit….not how they will go against the will of the people.

  4. The underlying fact here is that large number of the population because of the education system are ignorant of anything except from what they read in newspaper headlines. So we get politicians like boris who speak in a way to con those people into voting for his party.
