Yeah, I know, not the thing bemoaning how shit the BNP are. But hey, we already know how execrable the BNP are, so I reckon it can wait a bit (until I’ve finished writing it). I want to talk about the leader’s debates. I’m assuming you know what I’m talking about, but for any non-UK readers, this is the first time we’ve had televised debates. The last (of three) just finished. Personally, I think the debates are fantastic. They make politics more engaging; I heard kids on the bus who would usually be talking about the football result talking about the various leaders and their policies. While I abhor the X-Factor and that sort of nonsense, I do think that this is a good way to get people interested in politics.
