Tonight’s Virgin Media Television debate was hosted by Pat Kenny and is one of four big TV debates we can expect over the next fortnight.

We’re also giving you a chance to rate how you think veteran broadcaster Pat Kenny performed as moderator of the debate. 

You can rate each out of 10 below (just click ‘rate now’ to compare your take with readers’ average rating) …
