I think the debates format should be more informal, maybe with a musical flavour. It's been done before.
Not only would this give the country a sense that our idiot politicians ultimately had only our best interests at heart (instead of theirs, shock horror), and would cooperate out of a sense of duty and in that spirit of grownup-ness, it'd be a shitload more interesting than the first one. Massively.
Maybe Cameron and his band could get the ball rolling with a sharp and uplifting nostaliga set. Eighties stuff, perhaps.
Clegg could follow up with some sort of vicious, meaningless goth/death metal fusion crap. (I hear he's obsessed with that sort of thing.)
Brown will just be the roady. If he's lucky. Well, hey, at least he'd have a chance to be involved. That's fair.
He'll need the work.
