Salmond vs Darling: Round 2 (25th Aug)

Oooft. Just oooft.

Salmond was as measured and on his game in this debate as he was off it in the last one.

Darling had nothing when the wheels came off his Plan B bus. A lot of finger jabbing, stuttering and generalisations about "pooling resources" and "strength of the union".

That was a fucking pounding. At points I was giggling like a schoolkid. Darling was deliciously dreadful.

Hamilton V Morton levels of pure one sidedness. You can tell how good it was by how quiet the Britnats are here tonight.

Pleasing.

How much donwe expect the polls to swing based on tonight then?

Not enough to make a real dent in the polls, imo, but then I don't believe the polls reflect public opinion.

I am still interested to know why Eyebrows McGee called one of the studio audience "Brian", when as far as I know he didn't give his name.

Darling: "WHY take the risk of the burden on the shoulders of 5 million people when er.. you can er... take it across... spread it over the shoulders of 65 million pounds".

Jesus. What a disaster for Darling.

It's very rare indeed to see a man having his career brutally filleted on live TV.

It was compelling stuff.

Only one man fought for Scotland tonight and that was the man in the blue corner.

Millions watching across the world saw that crystal clear.

Now we just need to see that translate into a poll shift.

I didn't see the debate as I was otherwise engaged but the sense I'm getting from people I trust on social media was that tonight could be the beginning of the end for the union. Definitely think I spoke too soon calling it over three weeks ago and it's game on now.

The repeat is on STV just now - get it recorded if its the case.

Nah I don't think it will win that many undecided round unfortunately - but in terms of a debate it was an absolute landslide.

Darling was a quivering wreck at certain points.

STV just now chief.
