Cameron Welcomes Possibility Of Election Debates

So David Cameron has been quick of the mark to welcome the hint that Gordon Brown may be changing his mind about holding televised debates, come the General Election.

But why should this be limited to Cameron vs Brown? The LibDems will, no doubt, be vociferous in demanding that Clegg be included.

What would really make such a 'Leader's Debate' interesting were if the Leader of the party who polled the second highest number of votes in the European elections - and whose party is fast becoming the fourth major party in British politics - were to be included.

We might then get some 'commonsense' injected!

Update: So it ain't going to happen. In an example of 'joined-up' government, Downing Street has just 'hit the suggestion on the head'!
