Theresa May: Agree to TV Debates!

EDIT: A much bigger version of this petition is already going! Please go and sign this:

Since the 2010 General Election, the British public have benefited from televised debates pitting the party leaders head to head. These have made British democracy more open, and our political leaders more accountable.

Which is probably exactly why Theresa May now wants to scrap them. Channel 4 reports that No 10 is already ruling out involvement in these debates.

This would be a huge step backwards. It suits a government which prefers to have its spin go unquestioned, and seriously diminishes the ability of opposition parties to be heard.

If Theresa May isn't afraid of scrutiny, she should face the music like her predecessors.

Sign and share like crazy - we don't have much time.
