A putative Brown and Cameron General Election debate

The PM programme this evening discussed the merit of a radio debate between the party leaders over a television screening of an exchange.

The journalist Andrew Billen suggested a radio debate would be Any Questions? at best or The Moral Maze at worst. Which is about right.

Unfortunately, on a television debate Gordon Brown risks coming over like Richard Nixon in the American 1960 Presidential debates. In fact, there were four, the first from September 26 is on YouTube.
