Election 2019: TV Debate

Boris Johnson is way ahead in the polls and the popular sentiment among much of the press and all Tories for Corbyn is derision. So Johnson should have wiped the floor with Corbyn in their TV debate. But he didn’t. He scored on the debating points, but descended into bluster on the issues. The YouGov poll afterwards gave a narrow win to Johnson 51% to Corbyn 49%. That should worry Tories. But the next bit should really scare them. Among undecided voters the same poll found Corbyn 59%  Johnson 41%.

The coming three weeks to polling day will be politically very interesting. Today is the launch of the Labour and Tory manifestos. Expect more from this blog when we have had a chance to gauge the reaction to them.
