Having already vented my spleen on the live blog tonight, folks, this sketch by Quentin Letts sums it all up much better that I could at the moment.....
AGGRO, THRUSTS, PALPABLE HITS AND ONE OR TWO MOMENTS OF HIGH COMEDY
Fight! Fight! Well, that one was much more fun than the first leaders’ debate. Aggro, thrusts, parries, palpable hits and one or two moments of high comedy.
Gordon Brown, his fringe stiff with hairspray, kept smiling like Jeff Tracey from Thunderbirds. Nick Clegg developed a case of the sweaty Bettys. Mop wallah! Quick! Swab down that man.
David Cameron again frowned rather a lot, though he did remember to point his poached-egg eyes directly at the camera lens.
