I'd given up watching these debate programmes but may tune in for one last hurrah.

Rucker Ruth v Brawler Boris

Who's your money on?

IamSlavetotheEU Tue 21-Jun-16 16:29:24

where? do you mean the big one, with more people on each side?

My money is on the person in the audience who will ask a smarter question and make a better point than anyone on the panel making at least one of them look like an utter dick.

How about you?

squoosh Tue 21-Jun-16 16:33:01

Yes, sorry to the other four people who I neglected to mention!

Sadiq Khan - Remain
Frances O'Grady - Remain

Gisela Stuart - Leave
Andrea Leadsom - Leave

Oh I do like a stroppy and clever audience member who refuses to pipe down.

I think Andrea did an amazing job last time, she is cool headed and clearly super intelligent lady. She out classed everyone on the panel last time, incl Boris.

Gisela was also good but didn't get her point out quite as well as Andrea.

But how do you think Andrea did?

I might actually watch this (I tend to avoid these types of programmes). Very interested to see how it will go.

Limer Tue 21-Jun-16 18:50:15

Yes, will be watching this, I think Andrea's fantastic.

Cocoabutton Tue 21-Jun-16 18:56:22

I don't normally watch TV, when is it on?

WellErrr Tue 21-Jun-16 19:00:37

When's it on?

Andrea was brilliant last time. I REALLY hope we get out.

bkgirl Tue 21-Jun-16 19:26:55

Keep promising myself I will start ....knitting or something (for the first time) but yeah I won't be able to resist.
We should stick truth detectors on all 4.

I'm really glad Andrea is on this debate. I feel she should have lead the Leave campaign.

SmileAndNod Tue 21-Jun-16 20:27:21

Yep we're watching. We've decided that Boris looks a lot like the mayor in Ben & Holly. That's as far as our political thinking has got so far smile

MorrisZapp Tue 21-Jun-16 20:29:14

Who is Andrea?

Cocoabutton Tue 21-Jun-16 20:34:41

Thanks Liner, started housework so missed loads!

HollyGoeslightly Tue 21-Jun-16 20:35:38

Andrea Leadsom, MP

squoosh Tue 21-Jun-16 21:07:05

Oh that Andrea 'as a mum' Leadsom person is so irritating. And as for Gisela 'as a Mum and grandmother' Stuart, she's just a bit of a non entity.

They've been clearly trained to shoehorn 'as a mum' in as many times as possible to make them seem likeable and trustworthy.

Fail.

BoatyMcBoat Tue 21-Jun-16 21:10:30

I'm sick of the political point-scoring and obfuscation coming from the remainers. They've really pushed me over to exit. They've been the same on every debate I've suffered through. I can't be bothered to watch any more.

IamSlavetotheEU Tue 21-Jun-16 21:13:46

Holly I agree on Andrea why have we only heard of her recently?

I agree Leave is weak tonight, constantly interrupted by opposite and lost on tangents. Boris is not a quick talker and neither is Gisela.

TBH I think it should have been those three agaisnt Andrea grin
