Nationalist and Green parties will be invited to take part in election TV debates ahead of the general election, it is understood. The SNP; Plaid Cymru, the Party of Wales; and the Green Party of England and Wales will reportedly get the opportunity to share a platform with the major parties after the broadcasters changed their blueprint for the programmes. Original proposals would have seen three debates. The first, co-produced by Sky News and Channel 4, would have pitted Prime Minister David Cameron for the Conservatives against opposition leader Ed Miliband for Labour in a head-to-head formation chaired by Jeremy Paxman and presented by Kay Burley. The second programme was to air on the BBC and feature Mr Cameron, Mr Miliband and deputy prime minister and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg. David Dimbleby was to host. The final debate would have included Ukip leader Nigel Farage alongside the other three men and would have been presented by Julie Etchingham. However, reports suggest a fresh offer has b ...

Political post two, 21st Jan: Labour seem to be making a habit of embarrassing themselves on Tuesdays. Not sure why - perhaps they're just doing it every day and that's when I'm paying attention. Last week, 28 of Labour's 40 MPs in Scotland voted in favour of George Osborne's Autumn Statement, which proposed approximately £75 billion in further cuts. Overall, 198 of their 257 MPs voted for it. 5 voted against. The rest - including Jim Murphy, Alistair Darling, and Gordon Brown - didn't even bother turning up. (The overall vote, by the way, was 515 to 18 - if that's representative, then about 96% of people are in favour of austerity. I think not.) Yesterday, there was an Opposition Day debate and vote on scrapping Trident, put forward by the SNP, Plaid Cymru, and the Greens. These votes, it should be said, aren't binding - but they *are* telling, and can serve well to force the government's hand. Less than half of Scottish Labour even turned up. Of the 18 that did, only 6 were in favour of scrapping it. T ...
An excellent well written piece Highlighting Jim Murphy's missed opportunity to acknowledge that he is aware of public concern regarding Trident Instead he appears to be running scared of Trident deciding it is better to ignore it by not even bothering to turn up for the Debate in The House of Commons .He did not deem it important enough to defend his argument to retain Trident with all its potentially devastating consequences Labour dismissed the debate as 'an SNP stunt' conveniently missing out the fact that the debate was in fact jointly proposed by The Green Party, Plaid Cymru and The SNP
Plaid Cymru would aim to rebalance the UK's power and wealth if the party holds the balance of power after the general election, leader Leanne Wood says.
Labour and the Lib Dems are in favour of renewing the Trident weapons system, butt the SNP, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru have formed an "anti-austerity alliance" and threatening to make scrapping Trident a red line in any coalItion negotiations that happen in May.

ONE FOOT IN MY MOUTH 11/12/14 No 212 Editorial:- I do believe I did do the tyre thing as it has been called. Back in the days when I was at the cutting edge of design thinking, tirelessly treading into unknown minefields of design acrimony. But the hub of the matter was that I balanced out the pros and cons and had two old tyres with a round glass top, as a coffee table. My sports reporter brought that to my attention, pity he can`t do more worthwhile reporting, stuff he`s paid for , or not. Oh, just in case you saw that the old "Flying Scotsman" train went from Norwich to Edinburgh today, it was a commemorative run, and not an improved east coast service. Although it would be an improvement. Around The World:- Now I see the Welsh are getting all politically correct.
