Sky News Leaders' Debate Campaign

We, the undersigned, support the campaign for a leaders' debate.

Sky News has launched a national campaign calling for a live television debate as part of the General Election, the first of its kind in Britain.

John Ryley, the head of Sky News, has written to the Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Conservative leader David Cameron and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg to invite them to take part.

He told them faith in politics and politicians has been shaken, and a debate during the forthcoming election campaign would offer a unique opportunity to re-engage disillusioned voters.

"There is a chance here, not just to do something that has never been done, but to energise an electorate, to reconnect with the millions of people who have been alienated by politics and the way it is so often covered, to achieve something that is truly democratic," Mr Ryley wrote.

Sky News is calling on readers and viewers who support the campaign to sign the online petition here.

:: Please check your inbox for your confirmation email after you sign up to complete the process.
