No election TV debate, says Blair

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

No election TV debate, says Blair (BBC News)

For a man apparently trying to reinvigorate interest in elections, this would seem a strange decision. Perhaps he’s worried that it would give a boost to the oppostition, and make him look silly in an election which he’s fairly certain to win anyway.

The best move now for the Conservatives would be to arrange a televised debate between Michael Howard and Charles Kennedy, and then point out that Mr Blair cannot be bothered to attend to defend his policies. It could be a primetime Labour-bashing programme, an opportunity surely too good to miss?
