And she’s been talking about TV debates - but making the usual level of sense. Starting at the very beginning - a very good place to start - readers are told “My opinion on the TV debates? We can do without them”. Very good of you Ms M., so that’s all, then, is it? Sadly, no it isn’t: “When did we turn into a bargain-basement America?” she demands, seemingly oblivious to the inconvenient fact coming round the corner.
And then we come to the thorny question of who gets into the debates, and Ms Mensch goes yet further off piste. Nigel “Thirsty” Farage is swatted away, and the SNP is for some reason given highly favourable treatment: “Nicola Sturgeon’s real People’s Army from Scotland ha a chance of 40 seats”. Hello again Louise! There’s a thing called First Past The Post, which might not be too helpful on that front.
