It's Nick versus Nigel

The Times reports that UKIP leader, Nigel Farage has picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Nick Clegg and will debate him on Britain's continuing membership of the European Union. This immediately puts pressure on Miliband and Cameron as to whether they are also prepared to set out their party's stall in what could be a defining moment in May's European elections.

Let us hope that the debate does not stand or fall on the decision of Labour and Conservative leaders to participate or not. We need to raise the profile of the arguments for staying in Europe and this is a particularly good way of doing so.

What we need now is for this debate to be televised rather thanjust confined to LBC. It is time that UKIP's misrepresentations on Europe were challenged and rebutted in a national debate.
