Beware the small print

Earlier this month I signed the Sky TV petition calling for debates between the main party leaders (http://benjaminjohnjones.blogspot.com/2009/09/tv-debates.html). It looks today as if the Prime Minister, after much characteristic dithering, will accept the challenge (or at least that’s what his grim spin machine was briefing last night in Brighton). I am not celebrating just yet because after many years of Gordon Brown budgets and speeches, we know there is often a sting in the tail hidden in the small print.
