The bias toward May was subtle, but obvious. Her image at the head of the show and at every break had first place and longer visibility. Paxman attacked Corbyn visciously and was more generous towards May, allowing her more time to answer and to complete her answers. Being hosted by Sky News and Channel 4 it was supposed to appear to be more “neutral” than the BBC, but this is a totally false assumption. Though the audience were supposed to be “a fair cross section” of the public, the pre-submitted questions were not. May had also refused to debate Corbyn directly prior to this “compromise” format.
May expects the public to accept her “strong and stable” leadership, however she has not responded strongly nor stably when confronted in person. She can only repeat Conservative doctrine and has resorted to generally avoiding confrontation by the public altogether. She is NOT any kind of “a leader” (except from the rear, and from behind closed doors)!
In contrast, Corbyn has no fear of the people, especially, and is usually mobbed wherever he goes, and is willing to place himself at the FRONT of his policies personally (and always has, even when side-lined by everyone else). Yet we are told that he is no leader, has no following, isn’t Prime Minister material and is unelectable!
We may not strictly hold to everything Jeremy Corbyn says or believes personally, for whatever reasons, however no-one has yet been able to find character faults that would disqualify him (only “opinions”), and as such he holds far more credibility than any politician of any political party in recent memory.
Just look at their faces! – Who would YOU trust???
