Chris Huhne bests Nick Clegg

Well that is the drift from Lynne Featherstone on the Central London hustings. I have turned off comments so Linda Jack and Charlotte Gore can't respond. Only joking ;-)

But it was the questions - that in my opinion - separated the men from the boys - so to speak. There were two key areas where I felt Chris outshone Nick. One was in overall tone and content of response. Chris is clearly able to think on his feet and come up with really brilliant answers and not waffle. Nick reverts to the safety zone of talking about things like Home Affairs (his brief) when he isn't sure of what answer to give. Nick was more touchy-feely - without question - but Chris is learning feely-touchy - but with steel and with substance.

...Anyway - then it got heated as Nick interrupted and tried to attack Chris's position. Well - bet he wished he hadn't as Chris's response to the attacks showed the steel of which he is made - not only absolutely confident in content but delivered with absolute authority. That was an excellent joust!
