    On now.

    First Corbyn, then Sturgeon, then Swindon and finally Johnson. Just 30 minutes each.

    Corbyn is getting a roasting from the public (but I am sure that they all will).

    He is but this is where these BBC audiences are so weird.

    The audience is clapping him like nuts but then the questioners are tearing him apart.

    Hang on... few soapboxing how brilliant he is now...

    Now three questions at a time? I'm no fan of JC but surely one question at a time is most appropriate.

    Same old....Brexit is his Achilles Heel but he does very well on the other issues.

    I am surprised he keeps using the word 'tax' and 'go up' even if it is for the 5% as usually no MP wants those words ringing in people's ears.

    He has to be clear so when it hits he can say he told us so.

    Corbyn didn't answer the question "after your negotiations arriving at the choice of remain and Labour's leave deal, which of those would your party canvas for?"

    He spoke so much about broadband that this question was ignored.

    He gets 6.3 out of ten on the Dumpometer.

    Good at times, dog average at most and waffling on others.

    A problem with asking several questions at a time perhaps, it gives them a get out.

    Too many questions about Scotland, IMO.

    Those asking about his plans for the future and asking him to justify his past seems reasonably balanced.

    Well Sturgeon outrightly suggests JC will change his views publicly after the election to gain SNP support for Scottish independence... its out in the open now... I wonder how helpful that is?

    Basically, he seems to be of the opinion that the issues of the Labour leave deal and remain won't go anywhere near Westminster parliament. If Labour get into power they will just go off and do the negotiations, publish the results of those negotiations, not have any involvement with arguments in Westminster parliament and put it to the people.

    Much like the original 2016 referendum should have gone. It was nothing to do with domestic policy or politics. MPs had their own vote just as plumbers, accountants and bakers did. Why should it be anywhere near Westminster parliament dealing with a totally different politics: domestic politics.

    The 2016 referendum had nothing to do with Westminster. The only say any MP had on it was to go and vote just like the plumber. There was no need for any debate at all.

    It should have all been dealt with by the civil service and their counterparts in the EU.

    Likewise it had nothing to do with EU politicians.

    It was about populations and collectives of populations.

    Nothing to do with British domestic politics or EU domestic politics.

    Swinson... "We've got things wrong in the past and we've learned those lessons."

    Oh dear! :rolleyes:

    That doesn't augur well for the future!

    Swinson isn't just on the ropes. She's flat on her back and the count has already reached 8.

    He didn't get the chance to - Fiona Bruce cut in and then brought in an audience member with yet another new question.

    She wears those heels fairly well though.

    They shouldn't have arranged so many questions at the same time, not when this is such an important time constrained programme.

    Jo's zooming in on the number of dithering MPs re leaving the EU and not on the number of the public on leaving the EU.

    I can take you to any club with 650 members and loads will be against leaving the EU.

    But you can't say the same about the whole of the British public.

    They're just 650 people with no more say over the vote than anyone else. They had one vote each as did every voter.

    We leave and we get the civil service to sort it.

    Cameron gave us back the power we lend the office of PM. We should never have returned it.

    650 people dealing with domestic politics. Nothing to do with our choice to leave the EU.

    They need to keep their noses out.

    Yup it's looking like a two horse race, that former lib dem coalition just won't go away.

    Jo Swinson had a vote just as I had a vote. Why is she using her job to interfere in the result when I'm not using my job to interfere in the result?
