Three main party leaders invited to digital debate

Telegraph Media Group has invited the three main party leaders to a five way digital debate to be broadcast on the internet on the eve of the general election campaign.

The 90 minute debate, due to be held on March 26th or 27th, hopes to include the Tories’ David Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband, the Liberal Democrats’ Nick Clegg, the UK Independence Party’s Nigel Farage and the Greens’ Natalie Bennett. Questions will be taken from members of an invited audience and on YouTube.

Nigel Farage became the first party leader to sign up to the live internet debate on Wednesday. He said: “Scrutiny is an important part of democracy, and for this reason I am delighted to accept the invitation to this debate – so that I can make the case to the British electorate on why they should vote Ukip.

“I hope that the Prime Minister will muster up the courage to stand by his own words, and show up to try and defend his record in government. Mr Cameron has failed on nearly every pledge he made to the British public in 2010, and it is evident he’s afraid of butting heads with Ukip on immigration, the EU, our NHS, defence, education policy and more.”

Aides to Mr Cameron, Mr Miliband and Mr Clegg said they were considering the offer.
