Starmer and Sunak are set to lock horns in a televised debate

A voter speaking to GB News delivered a scathing verdict on the calibre of candidates putting themselves forward at the upcoming General Election.

GB News South West reporter Jeff Moody was joined by Pauline in South Molton to discuss the “main issues” she is facing ahead of the 4 July vote.

But she was quick to criticise the two leaders who are vying for the keys to 10 Downing Street.

“I don’t think any of them are fit for purpose, to be honest”, she said.

“I don’t trust anything they are doing. I don’t think Labour will be able to finance anything they are doing because they are not honest.

“They’re full of waffle. I don’t do waffle. You have got to be straight with the general public. They think we’re all idiots and we’re not.”


Asked by Jeff whether her sentiment stretches “across the board” and applies to all political figures, Pauline admitted she has time for one.

“They come out with some stupid things that just don’t work”, she said.

“The idea of stopping children from smoking, how they are going to monitor it, I don’t know.

“They can’t stop people from taking drugs, let alone smoking. It’s all gimmicks, and you can’t have gimmicks.

“I like Nigel Farage. I think he is a wonderful person, he comes out with practical common sense. He is a good guy. I have a lot of issues with what is going on like immigrants coming over, but I think it’s happening because of what is happening in the world.”

She went on to comment on the fraught situation in the Middle East where blood continues to be spilt in the Israel-Gaza conflict.

“I feel for the people of Israel, but two wrongs don’t make a right. They’re going into Gaza and killing all these people. They’ve been doing this for a long time”, she said.

“It’s about time the Palestinian people had their own state.”

Sir Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak still have a month to fight for Pauline’s vote as their campaign trails continue ahead of the General Election.

The pair are set to go head-to-head in the first TV debate in the campaign on ITV next week.

The broadcaster said the hour-long encounter in front of a live studio audience will be screened at 9pm on Tuesday.

Director of news and current affairs Michael Jermey said it will give millions of viewers a chance to see the two men hoping to enter No 10 debating directly with each other.

However SNP leader John Swinney said it was “ridiculous” that his party – the third largest in the Commons – had been excluded.

ITV said it is planning interviews with other party leaders as well as a multi-party debate.
