The debate, on Sunday Politics Scotland, comprised entirely of the four leaders – Murphy, Sturgeon, Rennie, and Davidson – having an absolute rammy.

You can probably just about hear the word "budget" in this.

People don't seem to feel very informed by the debate.

Absolutely pointless 20 minute screaming match. #bbcsp #sunpolscot

This is a shambles. Absolute bollocks from every one of the 4 leaders. #SunPolScot

So much so that this novel rule was proposed.

Does anyone remember in school you had the "only the person holding this pen can talk" thing? We need that for politicians. #sunpolscot

Still, on the bright side, it was probably only political journalists watching a TV debate on a Sunday morning.

Thank God nobody in their right mind is watching this #sunpolscot
