At last we get good political boxing, but roll on Saturday's count

A shame in many ways that we did not get such gusto in debating a little earlier. It might have motivated voters more ahead of Friday.

For those who like their politics, it was good fare. But we were not given a game-changer here.

We still face a situation - rather reminiscent of the Eurovision Song Contest - where the counting of votes, from 9am on Saturday, will be more gripping than the actual election contest for those votes.
