I was disappointed. Several policy areas fundamental to the mayoralty - housing, transport and the environment - went completely unexamined. I sincerely believe we've gone over the Al-Qaradawi and "watermelon smiles" territory quite often enough and there were too many questions on the emotive subjects of crime, race and immigration. Perhaps the QT team was worried about being too London-centric, but I thought the emphasis was wrong.
On Question Time Extra which followed on BBC News 24 I was surprised to see that Veronica's Cat thought there was no clear winner. I thought Johnson did the better of the two frontrunners - faster on his feet, better at dodging the question to get his best lines in - and that Paddick seemed liberated (I laughed when he told Johnson to "shut up."). Nothing of great interest emerged. The Cat declared that Livingstone's assertion that securing government money for the Olympics was "a con trick" on his part was a gaffe and the big news story, but Livingstone had said the same thing the previous day.
The most diverting moment of the evening was the fleeting sight of Ken putting his arm round Boris as they left the set at the end. What do they talk about in these intimate moments?
