Second Leaders debate with BBC: five leaders, one chicken
and an absent whining baby
During the Election debates on the BBC in the second of special debate programmes leading into the General Election 2015 for the UK, five of the seven main party leaders participated.
They were Ed Miliband (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (SNP), Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru), Natalie Bennett (Green) and Nigel Farage (UKIP).
Sitting leader of the country David Cameron (Conservative) previously issued an ultimatum to broadcasters and snubbed their offer, dictating to them he must not participate. They also added that the leader Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrats) not appear. Deputy Prime Minister Clegg did not turn up, despite having his own mind, supposedly. He claims the Conservatives, also known as Tory’s, secretly blocked him from appearing afraid he would reveal all the dodgy secrets of the Tory party over the last 5 years involving immense systemic abuse. Cameron also demanded he not be upstaged with ’empty chairs or podiums’ on the set. They were not used by the BBC and only 5 podiums were on display with the appearing leaders.
The debate focused on many issues and covered a lot of ground in an hour and a half with all leaders looking impressive in their own right, even if disagreeable. Cameron and Clegg looked like fools, sitting at home using responses to try and win in pre-fabricated statements made in advance alongside the biased press backdoor deals. They also sent statements online, which proved they were still involving themselves in the debate, which is shambolic to avoid.
Nicola Sturgeon and Ed Miliband agreed on multiple issues, but were divided over a coalition pact for now. This may change as the country expects a likely coalition government due to the changing nature of politics since Cameron sold out with Clegg in 2010 after failing to get elected. Labour leader Ed Miliband wanted to take his chances at gaining a majority in the election. Should this fail, SNP’s Sturgeon is offering a deal for the benefit of the country to rid the country of the evil totalitarian Tory governmental corruptions and abuses with austerity.
Also in the debate, a shockingly surprise move came from Nigel Farage, who seemed open to Labour at one point, launched an unprovoked attack which has cost the UKIP leader dearly. Without Cameron or Clegg, Farage attempted to be Alpha Male of politics and sideline Miliband. Farage failed to understand the only way to be electable from a political perspective is to join with them to get their ‘foot in the door’ and build politicians by 2020. Rebuffing this idea, Farage could eventually peter-out and lose his stead by 2020. It made UKIP lose its position of common sense to utter delusion and nonsense political play.
Green Party leader Natalie Bennett also opposed austerity as did Leanne Wood. Both put in good statements but failed to follow through effectively on plans fuller to make enough impact by trying to simply ruffle feathers which contradicted their own policies somewhat in part.
Though Sturgeon clashed with Farage over immigration as UKIP’s one key central policy, to abandon the EU to solve immigration, was Farage’s only bargaining chip for votes, sinking like a lead balloon. Farage failed to be comprehensive and at one point verbally attacked the audience of specially chosen voters by an independent panel/company unaffiliated with politics or the broadcasters. Chair of the debate David Dimblebee also pointed this out. He called the BBC left wing standards, after which the audience, under fire, did not appreciate.
For years the BBC had been led by ex-Conservative politicians who abused their position of political neutrality by offering biased news reports daily to favour Conservatives. It also hid multiple scandals over the years, including the infamous Paedophile scandal involving Sir Jimmy Savile, closely affiliated with Conservative governments and given access to abuse and rape children in hospitals and on sets at the BBC. The BBC workers admitted it was told to “turn a blind eye” when seeing Savile accost his victims on set and in his dressing room.
The BBC is funded by the taxpayer, the public, to produce content in their name, which is under scrutiny for failing to be of political neutrality.
David Cameron, ever the opportunist for a public statement, carefully edited and presented, said of the debates it was “part of the deal that was done to unblock the log-jam about TV debates” and was “delighted that I played a role unblocking that log-jam”. He said all participants in it were arguing to “abandon the plan that has turned this country around and has got us more jobs, more livelihoods and more business”. Mr.Cameron only joined in ONE debate with, as all seven leaders, hoping they would take the heat off of his tough questioning on ruining the country in the last five years. He has been urged to join in all debates to which Cameron has snubbed so he doesn’t look bad as he feels he cannot publicly defend his non-achieving five year term in office. He continues to control state media and news broadcasters in his favour.
Cameron has failed to meet one pledge of his many made in 2010-2015 and everyone has been a personal one to him, offering no democratic value to the people who may have voted for him in 2010.
Ed Miliband once again offered Cameron the chance to join in and debate him one on one, which the supposed leader of the country said was over and done with.
Farage looked like he was picking fights, but did try to be the one who ‘spoke about the stuff people won’t speak of.’ (Which is actually what FalseFabs is doing.) Farage also chose to follow up on his first debates’ controversial comments about health tourism involving HIV treatment. He said immigrants came to get diagnosed and receive up to £25,000 worth of drugs to help. The public did not buy his demonstrations, as they put it.
One important stat to also explain is that in London alone, an average of roughly 20,000 men were quietly diagnosed with HIV, both gay and straight in 2010-2015 under the coalition government (Conservative and Liberal Democrats). This demonstrates how many people society and David Cameron have truly failed in ‘brushing it under the carpet’ to look good. They do not plan to do anything further.
Bennett made strong cases but didn’t back up enough impact this time around. She offered jobs, climate change and public services to be saved. She challenged the public to “change the establishment.”
Sturgeon outlined the end of Austerity and to get the country moving again with a communal aspect of society, which was welcomed by many.
Miliband also came out on top with Sturgeon over protecting the country from threats, helping working families and look after the young members of society growing up in middle age from 30 onwards. Miliband has also been a key champion in protecting the vital NHS health service, which the Tories plan to privatise.
Wood may have been an extra on stage, but pressed hard on issues to show no pushover, well. The problem was she chose the wrong targets and couldn’t feasibly back up those claims.
After the debate the Tory party were given full stage support and not pressing on any statements over the TV debate even though their leader failed to join.
Any one party or leader who does not appear on a political TV debate scheduled for the General Election which requires the public votes from the electorate is shambolic and no politician has the right to tamper with bribing officials. The fact Cameron has done so means he should be struck off from being elected AND the party represented (Conservative) should be relegated from this year’s election as candidates.
It is unacceptable totalitarian Nazism rule which NO leader has the right to alter in a democratic process as the electorate need to hear the voices that are eligible for voting. No one has issued the policy and The Queen, who can develop a Royal Charter can, but has failed to do so, for her country. She is said to be a heavy Tory supporter and affects her political neutrality. She is also David Cameron’s cousin and meets him weekly for discussions, which affects her and Cameron’s position in office. She should make it law now. If she fails, then it should be imposed by Lord Neuberger and the Supreme Court imminently.
No-one politician should be allowed to abuse the system for political gain and like all ruling elites must be held to account. Should Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II need to do one last important act for her country, this would be it. Now is her time. Many regard her as a useless Monarch who only sits on a gold chair and does nothing but pocket salary from Tory handouts, which gave her extra income over the last five years also.
We are not Hitler’s children and the Cameron Youth Movement must not be allowed to interfere with the political spectrum under any circumstance in a democratic process. If politicians fail to act, then other institutions must intervene as soon as possible. Everyone else in the country is held to account except politicians and there is no excuse for tinkering with political injustice.
Cameron also famously hired ex-editor and biased spin doctor Andy Coulson, the first convicted criminal in the halls of Westminster Parliament as Head of Communications. He served a six month jail sentence, which included hacking a dead child’s phone for a news story, leading parents to believe the child was alive to access the messages.
