He didn't remember a number. But unlike the Conservative manifesto, there are numbers. And the childcare policy is sound - there is no doubt it would benefit a great many people.

You do realise the audience was openly laughing at May last night on the lack of costings or numbers in her manifesto? And she thinks 7p will pay for a school breakfast.

To be honest this was another example of lazy journalism, much like Paxo last night. The intention is purely to trip up, not to allow an adult discussion of policy. Our media really is very ill-equipped for proper political debate, so much of its approach is tabloid standard cheap shots.

In my opinion May looked very shaky and unassured and her tactic is still to criticise Corbyn (not working to be honest) rather than discuss her own policies. She did not answer the audience's questions on the social care policy, on police cuts, on education. Watch it again - ignore the fact you support her, watch her body language and listen to her answers.
