First of all, i'd like to thank Patti for helping me to launch PixelPress and get the word out about tonight's debate at such short notice...
As you would now know, Patti11 and Corny-Ratbag are contesting the upcoming election for eAus' next Prime Minister. It's shaping up to be a tight race, with much being said about the relative strengths and weaknesses in news articles and the eAus forums.
Now it's time to hand the last word over to the candidate's themselves, with a debate on IRC channel #ausdebate tonight.
The debate will take place from 9:30pm (Eastern Australian Time) and run for up to one hour. Questions will be posed to each candidate by myself as mediator, but all questions coming from the citizens of eAus. Please PM me with your questions asap.
Each candidate will alternately respond to a question and then have opportunity for rebuttal, with a time limit of two minutes per questions. If time permits at the end of the mediated debate, the floor will be opened to questions by citizens logged in to IRC. Full transcript of the debate will be available via the eAus forum afterwards.
Thanks go to both the candidates for accepting the challenge at extremely short notice.
