Sky News issues ultimatum to party leaders over US-style debate


Sir David Frost could host Britain’s first US-style general election debate when Britain next goes to the polls, The Times reports.

Head of Sky News John Ryley, also writing in The Times, reveals that his channel has written to the three party leaders offering to host such a debate. And he has said offer footage of the debate live and unedited to the channel’s competitors.

Ryley says: “The cameras will be rolling and anyone who doesn’t show up better be ready to explain themselves to the public.”
