Another option

At the moment, everyone (including me) is looking to the TV networks to defend democracy and force the major party leaders to participate in TV debates with the minor parties. But a correspondent has pointed out another option: the minor parties themselves could apply pressure. For example, by standing up together and saying "we will not support any party as government if they will not face us together in a debate".

Will they do this? We can but hope.
