            Why let the bias BBC have the tv rights? It will be a fix up. Farage will be interrupted by Dimbleby and not allowed to finish or make a point and Clegg allowed to rant about anything unchallenged. Ever watched Question Time! Goodness me, come UKIP we want you to win the debate on a level playing field not on a 1:4 gradient against you.

          It should be made very clear at the start of the debate what Clegg’s EU pension entitlements are and exactly under what terms that pension is paid. The greasy little tw*t won’t let the public know himself.

          I note that Clegg has already started to attack the man rather than address the issues that he is meant to be debating. I suspect that he will continue in this vein during the actual programme. He receives money from the EU subject to his continuing to promote its interests and not in any way critisise its actions however dishonest or illegal they might be.

          Does not the BBC also get funds from the EU. Are they provided subject to similar conditions?

      So more shoite on the Beeb this morning. Apparently they are promoting (the Labour Party policy) of quotas for women on boards, they want a quota for women not promoted on the basis of their ability, but their gender. OK, let’s suppose this becomes accepted. Every board throughout the land MUST have a quota of women. It won’t stop there. What about transgender – neither man nor women? OK, we now have a precedent, so there needs to be a quota for transgender. But the grouping of transgender with lesbian, gay and bisexuals (LGBT) as a pressure group for their interests will mean that they will all demand (and get) a quota too. When each board has its quota of male, female, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender board members, what if they are all white? So we will need quotas Afro Caribbean, Chinese, Arab etc. etc. etc. But what if these are all Christian? Throw in a quota for each religion and where are we? We will be in a world where you will need to just tick all the gender, sexuality, race and religious boxes in order to become a member of a board rather than any measure of merit. Don’t worry though; any organisation that goes down this road will face ruin in a very short time.

      I doubt it. Clegg is useless to start with but once farage is in the spot light, his views will be pulled apart as wrong, false and just negative. Real debate will be after the general election when all three leaders will get round and debate in or out. Once that begins, UKIP will be slaughtered. You can not run campaigns on false information like UKIP do. The facts show them wrong on everything they campaign on. And Britain will vote to stay in by a large margin. then what for UKIP?

    Some say it is better to say nothing, and be thought a fool. Than to speak one’s mind, and prove as much. Sure we can listen to two personalities debate each other, from inside the political paradigm. But wouldn’t it make more sense to have a third party there? To prompt then back to the path of reality, when they inevitably stray. For example: Rumour has it, immigration potentially deprives twenty+ citizens in every hundred of a job. To have our heroes fully appreciate this, would we not need to apply a similar double decimation process to the ranks of parliament?

        It is still up to David Cameron whether to debate Milliband in the 2015 GE, he probably will not. While he was he clear winner against Brown in 2010 and would eat Milliband for breakfast, any 2015 debate would need to include Clegg and, now, maybe Farage. That’s the last thing a sitting PM wants to do. Clegg knows this, so this is a way for the Lib-Dem’s only pair of clean hands (not a Gayer, not a P.D.O, not a convicted thief, not mentally incapacitated, not a twisted twerp) to promote themselves as a “leader”.

    This debate will be listened/watched by about 2% of voters. The mainstream media will then broadcast snippets favouring Clegg and report how he defeated Farage easily. The commentariat will then write numerous articles insulting UKIP and praising Clegg. This will be digested by 70% of voters. This is how the political elite/media elite manipulate the lazy public. They did it for Cameron vs Davis in 2005.

          Some reading of the tea leaves re: US defence cuts would suggest that the threat risk has increased absent any formal communications.

          Q’atar is much more closely aligned with the US at present, has reduced its own gas production and is earning income from US activities.

          With it being less of a direct competitor to R-Fed now, yet retaining income stream, it is a legit target for others in the region and the perfect US proxy.

          The block on gas pipeline caused by R-Fed intervention in Syr!a is hurting S’audi / U.A.E. (projecting ahead)

Real treachery will be after the general election when all three arseholes will get round and debate in or out. Once that begins, UKIP will be our only hope, You can not run campaigns on false information like Labour and the other twats always do. The facts show them wrong on everything they campaign on. And Britain will vote to get out by a large margin. then what for Labour, And where will all their racist voters/supporters go then?
