Abstract

I welcome the decision by the three political parties in the UK to enter the 21st century, even if it’s nearly a decade late. Three TV debates will not transform democracy in Britain but they are a sensible way to inject some more substantial discussion into the soundbite culture. I hope they will begin them before the three week campaign itself.
