I’m of two minds on the matter of supporting the televised leaders’ debates. John Key has been allowed to dictate the format, insisting on debating only Goff. I think democracy would be better served by having more party leaders on stage, and I wish that our media had insisted on that wider representation. But no, one on one debates it is.
With that reservation in mind, it still seems worthwhile responding to this call:
Submit your questions for the TV ONE Leaders Debate
Submit your election question for Phil Goff or John Key ahead of the Leaders Debate on TV ONE on October 31.
Upload a video to You Tube and then submit the url at tvnz.co.nz/debate, where you can also see others’ questions. Watch the video below to find out more.
The best questions will feature in the live debate.
Whether you plan to make a video or not, by all means post your questions below for discussion. If you can submit a video, great! If not, perhaps some other reader will pick up your question and submit it for you.
