It was an interesting 90 minutes. Already there are opinions with STV saying David Mundell put in a 'solid display' with Alex Salmond and Jim Murphy underperforming.
I think both Alex Salmond and Alistair Carmichael played blinders.
When Alex Salmond was speaking, the continual interruptions of Jim Murphy and David Mundell gave him his chance to show his professionalism and leadership qualities, which he did on each occasion. I was surprised Adam Bolton didn't intervene a few times because Alex Salmond lost out on the time factor I think. He didn't seem prepared to shout over two bickering adults and who can blame him.
Somehow I feel, (I am trying to be objective), that Alex Salmond had decided he's be the catalyst for both labour and the tories to show their parties in their true colours and it worked superbly. He didn't have to say much - just stand aside and allow both these party representatives to expose their ignorance of their own party policies.
Alistair Carmichael certainly kept the flag flying for the libdems, as he has throughout the campaign. The libdems must be thrilled with his performance and surely he is a contender for their next leadership contest.
In contrast to his plan regarding labour and the tories, Alex Salmond let Scotland see just how much the SNP and libdems agree on areas of policy. Such a shame they are dictated to by their London masters and refused to join the SNP in government.
One question - why did Sky run adverts when it didn't do so for the other debates?
Things may change by this time next year. We can but hope.
