It&#39;s bad enough that Westminster is effectively a two horse race without deliberately ignoring the smaller parties in the parliament [when it comes to debates] ... we need more political choice not less!Alasdairhttps://madestuff.co.uknoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-43896363505593176212009-09-03T13:45:28.858+01:002009-09-03T13:45:28.858+01:00It&#39;s a debate between potential Prime Minister...It&#39;s a debate between potential Prime Ministers. Salmond is not running to be PM of the UK. Therefore, he has no place in the debate.

It would allow the LibDems to take part fully but it also means that fringe parties such as the SNP and PC aren&#39;t cluttering up the show.Cirarichttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13429950592798175047noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-48296204728981455432009-09-03T13:31:13.488+01:002009-09-03T13:31:13.488+01:00Gordon Brown, <a href="https://curly15.wordpress.co...Gordon Brown, <a href="https://curly15.wordpress.com/2009/09/03/gordon-brown-man-of-many-words/" rel="nofollow">full of words</a>, with no real opinions.curly15https://curly15.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-76211895622654233062009-09-03T13:10:11.460+01:002009-09-03T13:10:11.460+01:00IIRC, Sky have said there will be separate debates...IIRC, Sky have said there will be separate debates in Scotland and Wales.
