The Success Benchmark :
How Many Will Watch the Debate tonight?

After months of speculation, hype, arguments, tantrums and rule changes the first of the debates are finally here. Guido hears that after all the effort that Sky News put in to make the debates happen, they might be a little miffed that they won’t be chairing the first of its kind. But what will tonight actually achieve for the political class and more importantly how many will actually watch?

Ten million people watch Coronation Street, a similar number tuned in to Doctor Who on Saturday. Eight million tuned into see Nick Griffin on Question Time. The BBC are sending over sixty staff to cover ITV’s debate, so who know’s how much taxpayers cash will be spent when it’s actually their turn. For these debates to be worth the millions being spent they need to be a game-changer and need to pull in the viewers.  They need, in the jargon of spin, to get cut-through…

The smart money seems to be on nine to thirteen million viewers, less than a quarter of the forty-five million registered voters. Guido has a feeling the debates may just be stirring up apathy…

      And you need to watch it to give an opinion, OH?

      It is three puppets of an international elite giving us the false impression of choice. They do not give a shit about us, only our votes, and so the media puppets of the international elite, in league with the political puppets of the international elite put on a show to hoodwink the public into believing that the only choice is between three shades of shit. They rely on and revel in our ignorance.

      Can you seriously see any of these puppets tell the truth? Will any of them answer a question with, “We will do whatever the EU commands us to do!”?

      Who needs to watch the puppet show? when you KNOW it is all theatre, an ACT. (like what is produced in Parliament)

        A false choice, a non choice and an engineered perversion of our democracy, the so called leaders debate is the political class showing their contempt for the British people.
        I hope people do watch and I hope they see the reality of these three sellouts selling themselves for what they really are, whores for sale. These smarmy lying shits need us only for as long as it takes to vote after which they will fill their boots and enrich their friends and sell us out as though we mean nothing to them.

    What’s happened to Guido’s grammar today? “…the first of the debates are [sic] here…”; “…who know’s [sic] how much taxpayers [sic] cash…”.

    Anyway, I’ll watch but I doubt it will make me change how I vote. I prefer to judge the parties on their performances over the last five years, not the few weeks before the election when it’s all just electioneering.

          Trust the labour party to downgrade it to a tent and then fail to do anything with it, other than turn it into the biggest white elephant in the country!

          So then trust the private sector to take it over and turn it into one of the biggest and most successful concert venues in the world.

      Not a huge amount of Sulphur Dioxide being emitted, at least so far, although apparently people in Shetland and N Scotland have detected the smell.

    In an attempt to escape the relentless election crap on TV,I have switched on the golf from China, on Sky.

    The commentators speaking as though they are there,but I swear I was having a drink with one of them last night in our golf clubs bar!!

    Not even Sky can get a guy from Berkshire to China in 12 hours,given there’s no bloody flights today.

    Moral of the story..nothing is as it seems….which brings me back to the election debates!!!!

      And as you find yourself remembering the wasted Thatcher years of slash and burn Capitalists closing down mines and the faces of the children of redundant steelworkers crying in anguish (taps wrist gently) you will come to realise that selecting a future fair for all makes perfect sense…

    These shows are more stage managed, directed and rehearsed than any TV drama or documentary but nowhere near as entertaining or informative.

    Over 6.7 Million watched Dr Who on Saturday. That’ll piss over the numbers that watch the twats on tonight.

    Dr Who is closer to reality than anything that will come out of the gobs of any of ‘em too.

    Fuck it, I’m going to watch Dr Who on iPlayer while those Hunts are on.

        Pity the red button cannot be linked to a stick of dynamite under Brown’s lectern. When we get to 10 million hits it lights the blue touch paper at 15 million it is within inches of reaching the stick and at 20 million the election result is confirmed. Hey Manchester we need another Prime Minister

    It really doesnt matter if just a hundred people tune in to watch the fraud, by the time the MSM have adjusted the viewing figures with their state of the art algorerythm the made up figure will be twenty million and the BBC will add their own special magjc and have Brown winning by a mile.

    Watch the body language and the weasiling around in the debate and work it out yourself.

    If the debates produce one positive outcome it’s been watching that pompous & self important Jock Alex Salmond throwing his toys out of the pram all day.

    Watching the anguish on his face tonight was almost as satisfying as the Spurs win last night.

    I wish Gordon will stop doing that weird thing with his jaw!

    Clegg came across alright, but I still don’t know if they are yellow Labour or yellow Tory.

    Cameron made some good points about cutting £6,000,000,000 from the budget. Made Gordon look stupid when he said that was only 1% of national expenditure. Well actually, he made Gordon look like a c***!

    Griffin would have had them all for breakfast.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
