The undecided voter who “took down” Ed Miliband – more dirty tricks?

May 1, 2015

Catherine Shuttleworth, the woman who according to The Telegraph “took down” a Miliband, admits to the Telegraph that she applied to go on the Question Time Leaders’ Debate as “an undecided voter”. She said this just after giving the thumbs up to George Osborne in the spin room. All this passes by the Telegraph correspondent.

Here is Catherine Shuttleworth’s signature on the, now largely discredited, letter of 5,000 small businesses supporting the Tory party. Also on the Telegraph.

Catherine set up her business with Andrew Jones, Conservative MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, currently seeking reelection.

My concern is that such desperate dirty tricks by the Conservatives and inadequate vetting by the BBC skewed the audience demographic on such an important occasion. Catherine was granted her question in the leaders’ QT as an undecided voter. The notion is laughable.

David Cameron mentioned the letter in his portion of the debate. Even happened to have a copy of it in his pocket. Ed Miliband is then confronted on it immediately afterwards by someone who, for all intents and purposes, looks like a Tory plant. David Cameron doesn’t have the courage to debate Ed Miliband directly, so he does it through a proxy. And this man is presented as the stronger of the two?

Oh and here is another of Ed Miliband’s tough questioners. She describes her interests as Cats, Conservatives and Chelsea. Another undecided voter?

    Suck it up. That’s been happening in Scotland for months of debates. Tory plant. Labour plant. Unionist plant.

    The BBC does not vet their audience in the way you think. They check that they aren’t overtly anarchic, and less likely to protest. Moustache man was ordered to remove the moustache. It’s all about appearance, both for the establishment parties, and their pet establishment broadcaster.

    Tory scam followed by Tory scam followed by Tory lies, followed by Tory scam. This election is one of the cleanest that I have ever encountered – except for the repeated Tory scams and lies that are supported, repeated, and covered up by the newspapers and TV.

    That’s the Elena who is swooning over Hunt? I wonder if she has seen the Leveson evidence and testimony about Hunt. No decent person could have done what he did and had he even the slightest twinge of that quality he would have resigned within minutes of leaving the witness box. His continuation as minister is a certain indication of the corruption at the core of the Cameron government.
