Debates

by

So, we’re definitely going to be treated to a series of televised leaders’ debates during the upcoming election campaign.

I don’t like how the focus on the leaders personalises politics. I can see the importance of these sorts of debates in the American presidential system, but it should make less constitutional sense over here.

However, I am still looking forward to them. In this day and age where the population is spoilt for televised choice it is ridiculous to say that voters should watch Prime Minister’s questions on BBC Parliament if they want to see how the party leaders perform against one another.

I also think there’s a high probability that lots of people will get mixed up between David Cameron and Nick Clegg. The two men look the same and sound pretty similar on many policy issues. This could confuse anti-Labour voters when they get into the polling booth. Excellent.
