Broadcasters have offered a resolution to David Cameron refusing to take part in TV debates.
The Prime Ministersaid he wouldn’t participate in debates with ‘minor’ party UKIP, unless other smaller parties like the Green Party were invited to take to the podium too.
The new format that has been proposed will now include not only UKIP and the Greens, but the SNP and Plaid Cymru as well as the Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems.
Channel 4 and Sky have planned debates between just David Cameron and Ed Miliband.
With David Cameron refusing to appear on television debates unless the Greens were invited, it has drawn attention to Green Party policies, Natalie Bennett the leader of the Greens spoke to London Live.
She said the Prime minister was using the her party for “his own political interests” and that the current election television debates are “not fit for purpose.”
