Warning to American Readers
- Please do not be frightened or confused by this article. Unlike Americans, the British voters have multiple real political parties to choose from in their coming elections. That is called freedom, something American voters have not experienced in multiple generations.
- Here we see the open borders Conservative Party trying to limit their exposure in debates. What I find interesting is how so-called "Conservatives" mindless knee-jerk and keep voting for endless immigration.
LONDON — David Cameron has made his "final offer."
After much speculation and negotiation the prime minister said late Wednesday evening he would participate in only one televised debate ahead of the general election in May.
In a letter to broadcasters, Cameron said he won't partake in a head-to-head debate with Labour leader Ed Miliband, but agreed to a seven-way leaders' debate.
The BBC, Channel 4, Sky and ITV had proposed three separate debates, two involving the Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats, UKIP, the Greens, the SNP and Plaid Cymru, and a third debate between just Cameron and Miliband.
Cameron's director of communications told broadcasters the one and only debate would have to happen before the dissolution of parliament, the week ending March 30, and could be 90-minutes long.
But the other parties and the broadcasters appear to be holding firm on more than one debate.
Following reports Wednesday night, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg tweeted:
While on Thursday morning, former Lib Dem leader Paddy Ashdown said if Cameron won't do the head-to-head debate, Clegg could stand in for him against Miliband.
"I’m told that Downing Street is now depending on the Liberal Democrats to say no. Well, I’ve got bad news for them. We’re not going to," Ashdown told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.(Mashable.com)

The Scottish National Party could win 56 of Scotland’s 59 parliamentary seats, according to the veteran polling analyst Mike Smithson. This would virtually wipe out the Labour party and the Liberal Democrats north of the border.
The projected success of the SNP would almost cancel out Labour gains in other parts of Great Britain, producing a dead heat between the two main parties on 7 May, according to Ashcroft’s projections.
The former Tory treasurer, who now insists he is an impartial pollster, suggested that the Tories and Labour would be tied on 272 seats each. Labour won 258 seats in 2010 while the Tories won 306 seats.
Labour and the Liberal Democrats were shocked by signs of the depth of the SNP breakthrough despite losing the independence referendum in September. (The Guardian)
