The final Prime Ministerial Debate - a press round-up
The broadcast was well received by the press. The Independent reported an audience of eight million watched the final leader's TV debate which focused on one of the more significant policy issues: the economy. It was the best debate so far according to The Times, which described it as "a good gig in Brum" and The Telegraph, which called it "a victory for the BBC".
The Scottish National Party did not succeed in their attempt to take part in the prime ministerial debate or stop it going ahead. In an interview with The Herald, Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond said, "We lost support because we weren't allowed to turn up. It's an issue of fairness." In an article for The Guardian, Simon Jenkins describes the decision not to include the SNP in the debate as "bizarre" and "grotesque". But Mr Salmond had his say on a live BBC Question Time with Ed Balls and Vince Cable following the show.
So there it is: the final debate before polling day. But are you any clearer on which way to vote? Join the debate on Radio 5 Live
