The Chancellors’ Debate, which wasn’t one, as only one of them was actually a Chancellor, was really boring, wasn’t it? Nobody really tripped up. Nobody had a barney at anybody else. Nobody accidentally blurted out the truth. That’s why I haven’t written about it in tiresome detail. Still, 1.7 million people tuned in (which is a lot more than usually tune in to Dispatches in the same timeslot, apparently), even more people saw the big Channel 4 logos in all the pictures in the papers the next day, and it “trended” on Twitter, which is the fashionable and incorruptible new way of measuring reach, even though most people I follow were Tweeting that the Chancellors’ Debate was really boring. Still, great to see Sam the Eagle, Ken Campbell and Piers Morgan on television at the same time. Ha ha. And that’s satire.
Oh, go on then.
