If it's not too UK/EU cetric, did anyone catch the Clegg VS Farage debate? What are peoples views on the issue or the debate in general?

If you didn't catch it it's here: http://www.lbc.co.uk/watch-lbc-leaders-debate-live---26th-march-87667 (I may be bad at internets but took me portugaling ages to find it!)

Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Is it just me, or are we getting way too much insignificant crap about the Pistorius trial every goddamn day when there are really much more important things happening in the world?

Must be a British thing?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

It's practically the only thing on my stupid windows eight bing news feed. That and peaches geldof dying. Seriously, if these people weren't celebrities nobody would give a armadillo. It's not even like most modern celebrities are talented they're just reality tv show stars. What a load of bollocks :/ rant over

You've got to be careful about where you get your news from though. Some sources aren't the best.

Nah don't worry Tom, it's only the finest example of upstanding journalism for me, the stalwart Daily Mail.

 :P
BBC news mainly.

BBC is best news source  :) (Unless you want in-depth news from Somaliland or something like that)

I seem to have gone back about 60 years and stick to the radio! But yes, we are getting too much information on the trial, I'm slightly interested to see what the verdict ends up as, but daily updates on the trial? No thanks.

He's a paralympic athlete who shot his girlfriend because he thought she was an intruder. I think he's South African but he's still getting loads of media coverage.
