Ask the Chancellors

There's almost universal agreement that Vince walked away with the gold medal in the Channel Four Ask the Chancellors debate last night: see the Guardian, the Telegraph, the New Statesman, Channel Four, the Financial Times, the Spectator and the Independent.

That's some achievement, when Cable - given his reputation - had the most to lose from the programme. By contrast, expectations of the Conservatives' George Osborne were generally so low that any performance in which he didn't actually trip over his own shoelaces and burst into tears would be seen as a triumph - and he still managed to end up in third place in the Channel Four poll (later revised to a draw with Labour's Alistair Darling).

Clips of Vince's contributions to the debate are available here.
