House of Comments podcast: Mark Thompson, Scotland, Camibland and Lib Dem prospects

House of CommentsOn Saturday afternoon, I joined Mark Thompson on his recently rejuvenated House of Comments podcast. He’s doing it in a new format with just one guest. We spent around 45 minutes chatting about the week’s events.

We kind of had to talk about the Camibland debate. I mentioned the imbalance between the questions the two men got. Kay Burley actually asked Cameron if he’d ever eaten three shredded wheat. In the same segment, Ed was asked if he had done a better job than his brother could have done. All in all, our conclusion was that it was 90 minutes of our lives we are not going to get back. We agreed that the debate of seven isn’t likely to yield anything meaningful but the others towards the end of the campaign might.

 

We talked about the outlook in Scotland. It is pretty ironic to see Alex Salmond and David Cameron working in perfect harmony. Alex Salmond’s breathy comments about how he’ll control Ed Miliband dovetail with the Conservative adverts. Both want the same thing – a Tory majority government. Salmond wants it because he knows it’s the most likely way of getting independence, Cameron wants it because he doesn’t want the Lib Dems to stop him from governing like a proper Tory.

And, finally, we discussed Liberal Democrat prospects and had a bit of a talk about the roller coaster of the last five years.
