Because it's fairly obvious isn't it? The best interests of the elecorate is to be well informed. TV debates are an effective way of breaking down what each party is proposing. It's hardly rocket...

Well quite :)

But then that's why a record number of people are likely to vote for parties other than the traditional trinity of Con/Lib/Lab. What the public are seeing are MPs looking after their...

It never bothered him in 2010. The final debate was on the very end of April. Odd that it's now a problem for him given he's the one that's has to defend his actions over the last parliament rather...

I'm a natural right-wing type of voter but Cameron is doing a mighty fine job of losing my vote and his avoidance of a simple yes or no to the TV debates was shameful. Next week I hope every single...

I believe that introducing news into the show hasn't been to the shows benefit. It's very difficult to handle the news in a humourous but sensitive way. Most of the big news items of the week aren't...

Quite a few of the White Collars claimed to be Survivor fans who knew exactly how to play the game yet they made rookie errors. In a 3-tribe season you have to vote off the weakest player first, you...

I can imagine such a deal would be poison for both Labour and the SNP.

Currently the SNP can take credit for all the good things and blame Westminister for all their ills. In government that...

It doesn't matter. Would Cameron really sit back and allow the others primetime air time to debate without him? Of course not, it would likely scupper any chance they have in the election. And, if I...

It would work fine. If Cameron doesn't want his parties views represented then that's up to him. It would then be up to the voters to decide as to what they make of that. It won't happen though. If...

You've hit upon my exact problem with the idea. There's no reason I can think of that would convince me that it's anything other than a gimmick. What other reason could be given?
