The news that Gordon Brown wants every possible moment to prepare for the TV debates is, oddly enough, good news for the Conservatives. I suspect it means that Brown will turn up with a litany of statistics, age-old quotes from David Cameron and some prepared attack lines. If Brown is determined to shoe-horn these in, he won’t be able to adjust to the debate as it unfolds.
Just fyi, tonight's YouGov tracker has the LibDems dropping three, having gained four yesterday. The Tories are up one and their lead is up to five points.
PS Gove and Balls are about to debate on Newsnight, should be well worth watching.
