The Leaders' Debate that did not happen

I have been catching up on reading some old Private Eyes when I came across an interesting little gem in Media News.

It seems that during the General Election a proposal to stage a version of the leaders' debates on Radio Five Live with all three speakers replaced by Clangers was vetoed by management. Presumably, Adam Boulton would have been played by the soup dragon.

The failure to execute this idea is a great loss to British broadcasting. It is a shame Oliver Postgate is not still alive to champion it for the future.
Oliver Postgate ROCKS!!!!!
or even some old Private Eyes, perhaps Peter.
