Gearing up for the leadership debate

I've switched on. I've got my popcorn. And I've got a bottle of rum and a shot-glasss for all the standard cliches Brown, Cameron and Clegg will make during the course of the show.

Interestingly I see the Greens have tried to muscle in on the action by using today as the formal launch of their manifesto.

It looks like Caroline Lucas is clearly positioning them as the high-tax party, although I doubt this will have major appeal it will attract the state socialists and in doing so has set a backdrop for what will be said tonight. So I will be watching to see how the leaders of the 'big three' parties respond to the political challenge this presents.

Now let's go.
