British leaders' debate

Didn't watch it, but watching the responses is fun.

Polls suggest that it was a fairly good debate, inspite of the 'beargraden' fears voiced before.  Ed Milliband, David Cameron, Nicola Sturgeon and Nigel Farage have been identified as the best performances.

Yes, you read that right.  Ed Milliband.  Accordig to ICM, he edged cameron 25% to 24% as the overall winner.  According to ComRes, they are neck on neck.  YouGov found Cameron edged Milliband by a whisker, but both were trounced by the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon.

Which, given he's been written off as a useless mumbler who can't articulate his on name, with the charisma of a damp dishcloth and the nous of a dead mouse, is bad news for Cameron.

It'll be really crap for David Cameron if he goes down in history as the man who lost to Ed Milliband.

Meanwhile, the Mail, inevitably, has its own interpretation of events:
Ed falls flat: Miliband fails to land a blow as Clegg calls on Labour leader to apologise over crash and Cameron hits him over NHS - while Farage is attacked for 'foreigners with HIV' comment
Not showing any bias at al there.
