I will not review the Leaders debate except to say Clegg won. I would say that it is worth looking at the Frank Luntz finding. Many of you will recall the work that he did Newsnight which showed ho well Nick Clegg and Vince Cable were received by the public. He was retained by the Sun to carry out his instant response techniques. You can see his report here. Clegg won he says -but you would not have guessed that from the Sun's report!
So Lib Dems won the Chancellors' debate and now the Leaders' debate. The challenge now is communicate directly to the electorate. The 'middle men' of the media have shown that they are unable to develop a way talking about politics which includes the Lib Dems without being patronising or snide.
