David Cameron looks more like a chicken every day

Will David Cameron's decision to avoid having party leaders' debates during the next election campaign make him look a coward and harm him?

So someone asked on Twitter the yesterday. I replied rather grandly that, unless this move fitted with a wider narrative about his being a coward, it would not.

Well, that narrative may be developing. Today came news that Cameron is refusing to take part in a Leaders Live session.

These live Q&A sessions with young voters are organised by Bite The Ballot and ITV News.

Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Nigel Farage and Natalie Bennett have all taken part in one - you can see Nick Clegg's session on this blog.

But Cameron, he tells us, is "too busy" to take part in one.

My headline says he looks more like a chicken every day, I am no poultry farmer, but looking at the photo he may be a cock.

On that note, did you know that Sue and I recently added three chickens to our existing menagerie?
