Election debate battle hots up

The Guardian and The Telegraph have teamed up with online video site YouTube in a bid to stage the 2015 general election debates. The debates, which five years ago were broadcast by major TV channels, are likely to feature the main party leaders: David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. The trio argues that by broadcasting the debate online more people would be able to tune in. It will aim to engage a younger audience.
