Enjoyable stuff and Mr Farage certainly came across as more passionate but he is something of a showman . Mr Clegg appears more calm , collected and statesman-like .
Damned if you do and damned if you don't . Poor George Osborne. The biggest gripe of retirees with pensions is how they are being well and truly mugged by having to purchase a duff annuity. so what does he do ? He addresses the problem directly and gets pilloried for it.
