Political leaders agree to general election TV debates

In a sign that the UK political arena is beginning to reflect the US political scene more and more, it has been revealed that Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg have all agreed to participate in three live TV debates ahead of the general election. Despite the fact that Gordon Brown has refused point blank in the past to become involved in live TV debates with his major competitors, many believe this is literally the last throw of the dice.

It will be interesting to see the various policies and strategies of the three leaders but ultimately, while policies will matter, there is also immense focus upon the way they act on TV and even their look. Gordon Brown has in the past made a number of gaffes on high profile issues in the House of Commons and there must be concern that this could be repeated live to the nation. However, David Cameron and Nick Clegg will also need to be on their guard because while seen as the alternative to Gordon Brown, David Cameron still has much to prove to voters in the UK.

The debates will be shown live on BBC, ITV and Sky and are certain to attract large scale viewing numbers as the election edges closer.
