    Default Will Cowen and Kenny team up on Gimore in a televised debate to expose Labour?

    just thinking about the next election and this talk about a three way debate involving Cowen, Kenny and Gilmore. With public mood against Cowen and Kenny and for Gilmore could Cowen and Kenny team up against Gilmore to expose him for his populist 'say what the people want' attitude and expose Labour's lack of 'real' policy. Cowen and Kenny doing this could swing voters back to their parties and stem the Gilmore Gale

    wow, a bad poll for FG and they start to look to FF for a cuddle!

    Kenny siding with Cowen in an inept attempt to "take on" Gilmore? As a likley LP voter, I can only say "bring it on"!

    Why does it remind me of being hit with wet fish?

    You know, RahenyFG, if you really believe that Gilmore doesn't have any real policies, why do you think Kenny needs assistance exposing him?
    And how on earth od you think anybody alive would benefit from Cowen helping them communicate a point?

    Sure didn't Brown and Cameron team up on Clegg in the UK election's televised debates. That a similar situation to here, Clegg and Gilmore having similarities, leaders of third biggest parties enjoying an unprecedented wave of support. Could well happen. Thing is Gilmore may get sympathy for bully tactics.

    Brown and Cameron didn't team up on Clegg. They each tried to cuddle up to him seperately.

    right now the opposition is at logger heads with each other in a battle to be the largest party in the next government so im sure Kenny wouldn't mind taking advantage of an already sinking ship, ie Cowen, and use him against Gilmore. Cowen as well im sure would be thankful.

    He doesn't need sympathy. If you believe the future of the country should be decided in a TV debate, you may as well join Labour now and save yourself the aggravation.

    They would be crazy to do so as it would present him as the only real alternative to this government.
