I'm not sure I agree with your analysis Peter, however regardless of who you think had the edge in the leaders debate it was good to see the leaders respond to questions in such a widely accessible format. There was lots of predictable rhetoric but my assessment was that Mr McGowan was shaded by Mr Barnett who gave more direct answers to the questions and, rather than being "weighed down with the problems of incumbency", demonstrated tangible experience in solving state problems.
