Second Salmond-Darling debate to be decided by bake-off
In a bid to make the forthcoming debate between Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling more interesting to viewers outside Scotland, the BBC has announced that the debate over the pros and cons of Scottish independence will incorporate a bake-off.
A war of words has already broken out, with the Better Together campaign, which is making a spotted dick, arguing that Salmond’s appeal to patriotic fervour by making a try of shortbread ‘lacks a Plan B’. Meanwhile, the Yes campaign has accused them of scaremongering as there is no danger of shortbread running out in the next 30 years.
However, the BBC has abandoned the idea of a Splash!-style dive off in the third debate after concerns that the sight of Alex Salmond and Eric Pickles speedos would have an adverse impact on voter turnout.
