TV1 Election debate

I would like to say that this debate was vastly better than the debate hosted by John Campbell. Now I really like John but Mark Sainsbury has blown him out of the water with this debate. Mark drew out all sorts of interesting issues here with great questions like whether Helen Clark has ever changed her opinion based on evidence (i.e. a flip-flop) , a hospital pass that I think Helen fumbled.

We got to know the leaders a bit better and they were cornered into positions where they either conspicuously avoided the question or were forced to make tough calls - like when Key was asked if he was able to make tough calls that were unpopular and when he talked about the environment.
