Jo got off to good start saying this feels different because it is a contest between friends.
Similar vision in the party.

#Jo feels she has good media connection
And that she has good relations with other parties ? SNP

#Ed. ExperienceClimate change
I think they are both making an error in suggesting THE ONLY WAY to settle the Brexit debate is by a #PV

It is merely ONE democratic way. Keep the door open.

Please. Both. Stop doing that.
#Jo again says it was wrong to make a tuition fees pledge then not deliver it but looking at things now it would not be the best way to spend £11 bn.

#Ed agrees better to put the money into early years

Also fighting back on on the achievements in coalition but saying mistakes

On the #LibDemLeadership debates something that has been very much in my mind since the Bollocks to Brexit EU19 launch that was so successful.

It was an uncluttered message.

I increasingly think that following through with “We want a PV” is weak and an anti climax.
I REALLY think the POWERFUL unequivocal message that should follow “Bollocks to Brexit” in any GE and all messages should be
#RevokeA50. It is more logical, less messy and avoids the ethical trapdoor of allowing something that we think is unethical on ballot
If we are in GE territory then that should be our message.

Vote for #LibDem in large enough numbers so we have a majority and we will #RevokeA50 and get on the next day with rebuilding our broken country and broken politics.

Spell out the programme of work to achieve that.

Watching the #LibDemLeadership debate on #Sky with @AdamBoulton

I’ve been undecided as each candidate have particular personal qualities that appeal in different circumstances

I think @EdwardJDavey ‘s experience and breadth of understanding is showing

He more credible on “HOW”
@joswinson brings youth and sometimes warmth, humour and a contemporary feel to the debate.

She deals with the issues of electoral cooperation with Pro EU parties better.

BUT the way she responds on the #IndyRef issue unskilfully.
There is no recognition that there’s a difference in outcome for Scotland if we remain in the EU & if we do not.

If we are unsuccessful in stopping Brexit then Scotland, NI & now, I think Wales are being dragged out against their will and to their detriment

We can’t ignore that
