TV debate: Boris Johnson played successful defensive politics

2 44 0

A friend of mine has developed a nice line in watching the election on TV and muttering the lines that politicians are about to say. “Two referendums,” she says, just before Boris Johnson declares that the great danger of a Corbyn government, propped up by Nicola Sturgeon, is that there will be two referendums next year.

She could have watched the whole of tonight’s BBC TV debate reciting the lines the two leaders were about to come up with, a few seconds before they actually delivered them.

Jeremy Corbyn wanted to represent not the 48 per cent or the 52 per cent but the whole country, he said, and nobody voted to lose their job. Johnson had a great Brexit deal, oven ready, and dismissed fears about the NHS being for sale as “pure Bermuda Triangle stuff”.
