Presidential Debates, Round One
A lively debate was enjoyed last night by those who gathered in London City to see the first presidential head-to-head.
Hillary Clinton, somewhat reminiscent of a Cheshire cat, with a permanent broad smile, was effective. Far from coughing, wobbling and falling off the stage into the audience, she delivered a well rehearsed message and remained calm.
The consensus of those watching form London City, was that she left Mr Trump somewhat on the hop, unable to answer questions without a convoluted preamble, and forcing him to adopt a defensive position throughout, without much if any opportunity to attack.
There will be a 2nd debate on 9th October and a third and final head-to-head on 29th October.
