A debate about politics

I can't think of anything more depressing than watching the party leaders' live debates. Now I am watching breakfast TV on BBC1 and some analysts are discussing it in a way which rams home why the whole thing was a very bad idea. For example, they were quite struck by the gradations of colour of the three candidates' suits and shirts. I offer up their comments as an aid to voters who are trying to weigh up the difference between the options on offer:
Nick Clegg must take his hand out of his pocket.
Gordon Brown has an overly mobile jaw.
David Cameron has strong hand gestures but should have looked at the camera more.
So there you are. The other piece of analysis I have heard was late last night in the sitting room of the guest house where I'm staying. A bloke who is staying here watched the whole thing. I don't know where he's from but he has a very strong Eastern European accent. His comment was:
I watch debate. This David Cameron, he is a jerk.
