Vince looked pretty uncomfortable at times but put up a strong defence against some fairly ridiculous attacks from opportunist Lucas and bruiser Balls.

I would still have maybe put the question back to the audience about how much per minute of our tax is going on debt interest and who would defend the continuation of that.

Could have been clearer on the pupil premium and didn't hit Balls down about the increases in child poverty and the rich:poor divide over the past 13 years but did score on the loss of manufacturing jobs.
