The Three Chancellors - largely as expected

I watched the debate on TV between the three 'Chancellors.' Here is my quick reaction. Vince Cable performed much the best but, as George Osborne sneeringly pointed out, we are not going to get a Liberal Democrat government nor a Liberal Democrat Chancellor of the Exchequer. Alistair Darling looked and sounded like a traditional bank manager and, whilst he fumbled once or twice, he was - and is? - sound. George Osborne bested Mr Darling several times, but he came over as youthful and sneeringly clever. In other words, the whole thing was largely as expected. But what was more interesting was what they didn't mention at all.
