Even Jeremy Paxman eases off on the Liberal Democrats.
Tonight's Newsnight discussion about spending cuts was a gladatorial contest between Labour's Liam Byrne, the Conservative's Philip Hammond and Vince Cable of the Lib Dems.
Compare the Interruption Coefficients:
Byrne - 2.3
Hammond - 2.3
Cable - 0.9
Then again the Great Sage was at least answering Paxo's questions, whereas Philip Hammond answered only some of them and Liam Byrne answered none of them!!
