Matt Forde and Peter Hitchens on Blair and Boris images

Comedian Matt Forde looked at the relevance of personality and charisma to the voters over the re-election and political careers of Tony Blair and Boris Johnson.

He also spoke about the voices of Ed Miliband and William Hague, and the images that they project.

Journalist and author Peter Hitchens said the magic of Mr Blair was that he was "so vacuous", and how David Cameron's attempts to be a "second Tony Blair had not worked". And he claimed comedy fed a "childish attitude towards politicians".

They debated with presenter Jo Coburn after they watched a Daily Politics film on the politicians who have charisma.
