In a miserable display of political cowardice, TV3 have cravenly bowed to pressure from Labour and National.
With Helen Clark and John Key refusing to participate in any television debate involving the minor parties, TV3 have scrapped their debate altogether - thus denying the minor parties airtime.
TV3, whether by accident or design, is now in collusion with Labour and National to present this general election as a two party race.
A quick scan of the pro-Labour and pro-National blogs reveals a deafening silence on this issue. Yet these are very same bloggers who are often banging on about political rights, choice, etc.
It's a stitch up!
