    Is he? On what exactly? You can't say he's out of touch without providing the reasons why.

    Corbyn is a joke, he's been shown as weak on this debate.

    How about free broadband?

    At a cost of 100 billion

    It's never going to happen. Just a dream of a crazy old guy.

    It's way to late to re-nationalise BT, we can't afford it. There are techs at BT getting paid 2x as much as the equivalent public sector staff (due to pay freezes etc). Who is going to cover that?

    Next.

    Dont even try to say that a 51-49 support implies something else, 2016 was absolute at 52-48.

    Waste of time that was. Soundbites don't make a good debate.

    The questioning was absolutely diabolical from all angles. What present present would you leave under the tree? Jesus Christ....

    I'm surprised only 62% supported getting something for free lol.

    Pretty easy win for Boris, Corbyn didn't come out of this very well. These debates should be a better opportunity for the opposition party to shine and test the government's record. Doesn't look like that's the case. Oh dear Jeremy.

    Turned off when she said they may ask a question about prince Andrew.

    That was cringe, and why bring up Prince Andrew?

    Wasn't really necessary, Julie Etchingham couldn't control the debate.

    Piers Morgan should have done it.

    I agree Corbyn came across as extremely weak.

    He's a wet fish, no way a leader.

    The responses here really do make me wonder whether we are all just immune to changing our views.

    I didn’t come away with great praise for Corbyn - I may have missed anything he said in the first 30 mins so fair enough if he sucked then but, in the 20 mins I watched, BJ was unspeakably awful. That was my takeaway. BJ is absolutely horrendous!!

    The only way I could come away with any other conclusion was if Corbyn was absolutely hideous in the first half. Was he bad then?

    Yes that really did show the whole debate up when they wheeled that question out!

    This Election will divide opinions, it is important to respect those of others and not let politics ruin friendships. Our ancestors fought for us to have our voices heard and debate on our futures in a civil manner. Remember that personal identity trumps group identity.

    Predictably Corbyn was horrendous on Brexit and good on everything else, but that basically sealed his fate.

    Well to be fair he made statements of intent for each question. You might not believe him but at least in 6 months you can call him a liar. Mr C talk about skirt round the questions and being non committal

    You’re correct, no one will change their view, especially based on that.

    Neither were remarkable and fishing for sound bites.

    It's not as if he's got a history of lying or anything.

    There's obvious reasons for not believing Boris and that's the history of lying lol.

    I think we're at the point where even thinking about selling the NHS is political suicide.
