BBC should change format to seriously address the economic crisis

I find it astonishing that the BBC hasn’t had a couple hours worth of television dedicated to allowing the three main parties to demonstrate what they think of how we got here and where we go from here. This is a great chance for the BBC to show its national prowess.

I’m thinking they should shelve Question Time this week and put on a programme with each of the three treasury spokesmen giving ten minutes to state their case with neutral economists say from the LSE asking questions and giving their own views. You can also have party hacks putting in their two pennorth worth. Of course audience participation should be encouraged as well.

The spin-off would be a small precedent to have a proper election debate at the elections.
