In any such debate, what is being discussed is if A if is fairer than B. With each side saying their proposal is fairer. Each side has a very different idea of what "fair" is, meaning that the debate is confused and each side cannot understand the other. What an electorate needs to hear are what each party's idea of fairness is, rather than trying to figure it out from the debates that stand as proxies for this argument.
