Ruth Davidson Batters Jim Murphy in #ScotDebates

 

Jim Murphy was under the cosh during last night’s Scottish Leaders’ Debate, repeatedly mansplaining to Ruth Davidson and Nicola Sturgeon and coming fourth with the Sun’s Twitter worm. This is the moment the Scottish Tory leader pummelled her Labour counterpart on the economy:

RD: “There’s a massive difference between you and me. You crashed the economy and I’m trying to rebuild the economy. That’s the difference between you and me, Jim. You’ve run from your role in the referendum and I’m proud of my role in the referendum. That’s another difference between you and me, Jim.”

JM: “…The growth big growth in the last few years hasn’t been in industries, it’s been in foodbanks.”

RD: “The big growth in the last few years has been in jobs, you had higher unemployment…”

JM: “…There are people out there tonight sitting over their phones who have got zero hours contracts…”

RD: “And 68 of your MP colleagues employ people on zero hours contracts. Have you ever worked on a zero hour contract? Have you ever worked on one? I have.”

There was no snap poll, but Ruth was the resounding winner among the pundits…

How Much Did Ed Pay For This Training?

Ed reportedly blew £10,000 a day on Obama’s debate coach before last night. Value for money?

Live in the Spin Room

David Cameron Thug Life

Labour were slapping themselves on the back yesterday after their Martin Freeman election broadcast was viewed over 1.1 million times. Well, for some context this parody video of the PM was viewed 3.6 million times in 24 hours

UPDATE: How could we have forgotten yesterday that Dan Hannan’s scathing speech to Gordon Brown was an online sensation in 2009 viewed nearly 3 million times:

Brown’s Bogies Beat Labour’s Election Broadcast

Labour are crowing that with 1,157,834 combined online views, their election broadcast fronted by Tim from The Office actor Martin Freeman is “the most-seen party political broadcast ever online.” That may be so, however Guido would like to point out that as of right now – with combined views of 1,174,959 – the 8 years-old classic videos of Gordon Brown eating his bogies still have them beat. Tasty…

Guardian Debate Mash-Up

Freeman At the Point Of Use

Ed Miliband reassured a concerned member of the public in Huddersfield this morning that he doesn’t use private healthcare. Indeed, apparently he doesn’t know anyone who does:

“Not me and not anyone I know.”

Unfortunately not everyone got the memo. Here is Labour’s star new endorser Martin Freeman speaking to the Sunday Times in 2012:

“I live in a big house and I clearly have more money than anybody in the history of my family and that’s afforded me more choice. Do I use the private sector? Yes. I do because I can and I realise that the difference between the people who do and don’t is the wherewithal to do it. Do I support the NHS? Of course I f****** do. I still use it, but would I use private healthcare? Yes. I’ve got a map on my wall of Victorian London that cost 6½ grand, so why, if someone from my family needed something that was life or death, would I not spend my money on that?”
