Public platform

The Prime Minister, David ­Cameron, has said he will not take part in the general election TV leadership debates unless the Green Party is included.

Surely prospective candidates for political office have a moral duty to present themselves for public scrutiny in such circumstances. I believe this is particularly important for those who seek leadership positions.

Perhaps the time has come when this should be a legal ­requirement and not a matter of choice for those seeking office.
