On balance, those numbers are probably better for Corbyn. Being SO far behind on personal ratings, if you’ve won over half the audience, that has to be a win, you must have surprised some people.
Hungary and Poland have blocked some fairly unremarkable EU conclusions on the rule of law.
The two countries had problems with the role of the commission - which is fundamental to how the EU works.
Fact check. Boris Johnson is not telling the truth in this debate.
Sneering from the audience when it's suggested that climate crisis hurts the poorest in the world. Extraordinary. #LeadersDebate

Something is happening in rural bellwether seats.
And the polls are not capturing it.
30,000 people responded to ITV's Twitter poll. That's a bigger sample than you get from almost any pollster. The results:
This is what happens when pollsters don't call a database of Tories & then apply weighting.
The GE is Labour's to win. #ITVDebate
@SulekhaYH @bbclaurak The only question Johnson couldn't answer was "How are you honest and how can we trust you as a person" and that's only cause he couldn't just say "Brexit". His whole performance reminded me of Theresa May's "strong and stable". He has nothing else.

This campaign has been going for a few weeks and we’ve had an online video of an opposition figure doctored and now this “fact check” absurdity. It’s beneath a major party of state.
Reminder that we are not a fact checking organisation even if we claim to be. Masquerading as one is disgusting disinformation but... meh. We’re giving it tons. What you going to do about it scumbag electorate? You have no power. Suck it.
The Conservative Party Press Office office has just rebranded itself as "FactCheckUK”
If not illegal,
It is the most disturbing act of propaganda and disrespect for the truth.
