What can #David Cameron possibly be scared of, in not wishing to meet Ed Miliband in a one off political debate? Miliband said he would meet Cameron "anywhere, any time, any place". When speaking, some time ago, about the tv debates in parliament, David Cameron said the only parties that should take part in any tv debates should be the main parties that are elected to parliament. Meaning the Conservatives, Labour and the Lib Dems. David Cameron has never been keen in taking part in the seven party debate and only agreed to it at the last minute.
It certainly gives David Cameron's political opponents fuel for their fire, in saying David Cameron is "running scared" and "hiding behind his armchair in Downing Street" in not wishing to appear in a head to head with Miliband. Even now, the seven way debate could be in doubt, as Cameron accuses the media companies who will be or were to organise the political debates of rushing the debates and being disorganised. The reason I say 'were to' have organised the debates, is because with Cameron's reluctance to take part in the debate with Ed Miliband, the seven way debates, could also be in doubt now.
During the general election in 2010 it was all so simple, just three parties and three men; now with seven parties up for a possible debate, things have changed. The Northern Irish parties are complaining and could take legal action as they feel the door has been shut on them, as regards the televised political debates with the Welsh Nationalists and Scottish Nationalists taking part.
David Cameron promised much before he became prime-minister, but what has done damage to his administration are the severe cutbacks he has made to public services that the public depend on, and the hated spare room tax or bedroom tax, while funding overseas aid to the tune of millions of pounds. Is it that Cameron is really scared of facing his opponents on his track record of five years in power, and nothing to show for it with his measures of austerity? The economy is certainly back on track in some sense in the UK, but wages are still relatively low and not keeping pace with the growth in economy and with the vicious welfare changes, which makes many people asking "growth in the economy, what growth"?
How all this will now pan out in the run up to the general election is any ones guess.
