The debate between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage over Britain's future
in Europe has prompted a big reaction in East Yorkshire and
reaction in East Yorkshire `nd Lincolnshire.
Our Political Editor, Tim Iredale, was watching along with politicians
from our area. Tim joins us from Hull Marina now. What's the reaction
been there? I can tell you that both sides are
claiming victory tonight. Following a debate which oppressed many of the
hot button topics often highlighted by voters in Lincolnshire and East
Yorks. Jobs, immigration, whnd Yorks. Jobs, immigration, whnd
turbines, and, of course, the very question of whether Britain should
remain part of the European Union. In a moment we will have re`ction
from a senior Lib Dem councillor in from a senior Lib Dem councillor in

North Lincolnshire. `` Lib Dem councillor in Hull. I think what we
saw was Nigel standing up for Great Britain and the British people
against Nick Clegg. Again, spinning the truth as he is
well`known for their income and he was standing up the European Union
and his pension at a later date Obviously I think Nick Clegg won the
debate and it was good he w`s able debate and it was good he was able
to get across the key message that we have to be in Europe to be in
work. Being in Europe means lots of jobs, lots of jobs are linked to
jobs, lots of jobs are linkdd to Europe, that is important. Somewhere
like Hull, we need the jobs and the risk of coming out of the EU would
be detrimental to the number of jobs we have in Hull. The poll tonight
suggests that Nigel Farage was the winner by some margin, but they will
tell you the only poll that counts is the one decided by voters and
that will come in the European that will come in the Europdan
elections on May the 22nd. A man has been charged with
