    I have to say I wanted an hour of Corbyn. Yes I support him, but he was genuinely fascinating when explaining his policies and it was such a shame he had to do so in such a hurry while fielding umpteen questions about Scotland.

    Johnson’s persistent references to “when I ran City Hall...” are getting just so tedious.

    Is it just Johnson who's questions hadn't been planned and targeted, they seem to be on a hands up basis when others had their questions submitted and fielded by the chair... Interesting.

    True, but he was mayor longer than PM so his track record in terms of his ability to deliver targets is actually relevant.

    Johnson being ruthlessly exposed by a coterie of NHS professionals in the audience. His Government's record over nine years is shocking. He keeps trying to get back to "Get Brexit Done". The audience aren't buying it.

    He agreed with the audience on the NHS did he not?

    Now we can move over to the BBC News channel and see reaction (sadly by scheming MPs) to the Question Time debate.

    Come on people, over to the BBC News channel now: chop, chop!

    Nope, couldn't get through the leader debates, same old drivel that probably won't change a single vote.

    Flicked around and found 'The Sound of Song' on BBC4, and enjoyed it.

    Johnson: lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, etc

    No-one's buying it. Even Conservatives know it.

    The only way we can get some serious debate is to make every leader sit (separately) with Andrew Neill for 90 minutes.

    Audience members get too emotional and wanting to be loved, leading to some extravagantly long and complicated half questions - easy pickings for seasoned MPs to deal with. It also cuts down the time the MPs have to speak and they ride it out.

    Fiona Bruce is out of her depth on live television - her pleading to the audience to clap her when she had lost control and wanted it back was embarrassing.

    Maybe I am expecting too much but all we seem to get and got in the ITV debate too was screaming, shouting and quips - nothing of real substance from anyone.

    Is anyone buying your repetition?

    No-one's buying Johnson's repetitive lies.

    As this programme has clearly shown

    The polls prove you wrong...as will the election result.

    Oh. People are buying his lies...?

    I am more concerned with truth than polls.

    Why, oh why, were they asked several questions at a time and were then allowed to only answer one of them?
    Johnson completely dodged the question about the supressed dossier on Russian interference and Fiona Bruce seems to have forgotten that the question was ever asked.

    I'm not surprised that the young man who asked it kept interrupting.

    Bunching the questions was the first thing I noticed, see above.

    I've only just seen Mondays "debate" and that made things clear didn't it...
