Do have a listen to the Richard Bacon Show on 5 Live from 3pm to 3.30pm when I will be taking part in a mock leaders debate with a difference. I will be taking on the role of Nick Clegg, Lance Prince is playing David Cameron and Lembit Opik is Gordon Brown. We'll be fielding real questions from listeners, with Richard playing the ringmaster. I'm not sure how much of a p***take this is supposed to be or whether we are supposed to be totally serious in our roles. We'll soon find out!
Quite why Lembit has agreed to tak part in this is anyone's guess. I'd have thought that seeing as he's fighting a marginal seat, he ought to be devoting himself to his constituency. But then again, he hasn't been doing that for years now, has he?
