The 2nd Debate

David Cameron did the business. He looked credible, he delivered the detail and neutralised Clegg by turning the tables at crucial moments.

But his success was probably a story shared with Gordon's failure. Gordy made a mess of it. He did look desperate at certain points and he notably wandered into some really bizarre commitments:

1) The Death Sentence for Cheating MPs - Apparently according to Gordy 'no sentence is too great' for MPs who cheat the system. Really bizarre!

2) No 2nd Jobs for MPs - Apparently no Labour MPs can have second jobs now! - a big commitment.

Increasingly it now looks like a 2 horse race. I now think it is realistic that Cameron may be able to hold Clegg to a peak of 38-40 as his maximum polling figure before the election.

A good performance from DC and from Clegg - It's all to play for in the final furlong..
