Is there an ITV stitch-up?
One can understand that the Tories don’t want to highlight “blue-on-blue” disunity, but bear in mind the fact that the media helps boost the ‘toxicity’ factor of Nigel Farage by continually adding the label ‘far-right‘ every time they mention his name.
In fact, I don’t believe David Cameron would necessarily win over the undecideds in a televised debate. The debate, however, isn’t actually a head to head debate. It’s a ‘one after the other’ affair, in front of an audience.
Ellie Price, the Daily Politics’s political correspondent must have mentioned that Nigel Farage is “toxic” at least several hundred times,. She didn’t say anything at all about the toxicity level of David Cameron.
