LibLink: Stephen Tall on Nick Clegg’s debate performance

Go on, try to guess what LDV Co-Editor Stephen Tall thought of Nick Clegg’s performance in the televised Prime Ministerial debate yesterday…

Even if you can guess the answer, Stephen’s piece on Comment is Free is well worth a read for the analysis it gives of why the debate went the way it did:

At least in part, it’s the practice that the Lib Dem leader has put in. I don’t mean the intensive “debate camp” cramming all three leaders have undertaken in recent weeks, but rather the scores of town hall meetings he’s been holding up and down the country since he was elected in 2007. Not only have they earned the party much-needed regional media exposure during those longueurs between elections when the media forgets the Lib Dems exist, they have enabled Nick to hone his style, the way he answers voters’ questions, and engages directly with them.
