Question Time Campaign Continues

Both Radio 4 and Sky News have announced plans to hold televised hustings for the Lib Dem Leadership. But I still think that it is of sufficient importance to justify a slot on BBC1.

With the real – even likely – possibility of a hung parliament after the next General Election, the next Lib Dem leader is an important decision from the point of view of the whole country. And while only Lib Dem members can vote, public reaction to the candidates will be a factor.

So if you haven’t already, write to the producers and demand they have a Question Time special. They set a precedent for the Tories last year, and must not be allowed to flip flop now.
