National Press Club Leaders' DebateShare Event on Facebook Share Event on Twitter Share Event on LinkedIn
An event planned with precision doesn’t always play out the way it is imagined by those who spend so much time on the precision and forget the human interaction that makes for a great debate. And that was what happened in the ‘Leaders' Debate’ at the National Press Club. The faithful gathered, were locked in and denied their smart phones and other devices to connect them with those in the ‘spheres’ that feed on this kind of information and sat quietly through the set pieces, familiar electioneering in a debate that had no clear winner and wasn’t really a debate at all.
Where was the human touch. Some passion would have been a bonus, and a little bit of animation, memorable moments and some good old fashioned interaction desperately needed
A draw they say. A why bother really. Get back to the Town Halls, Mechanics Institutes, Masonic Halls, Clubs, Pubs and the Domain or this election will die in its endless boredom by being too long.
