Oops they did it again ...

There is an old aphorism that the challenger in an election always demands a debate with the incumbent and the incumbent usually refuses.

Margaret Curran (Labour) has just challenged John Mason (SNP) to a televised debate during the Glasgow East bye-election. That, then, would suggest that she sees being the Labour candidate as being the challenger in this 'safe' Labour seat.

I haven't yet heard, but I strongly suspect that John Mason will say *ahem* "bring it on". He's a better politician than Margaret Curran and he'll shine in any debate against her.
