Well, it ain’t the tag team match I was wishing for but it sounds good:
FEDERAL Treasurer Peter Costello and his Opposition counterpart Wayne Swan have agreed to debate each other on the economy in Canberra next week.
Speaking on Macquarie Radio this morning, Mr Costello said he had offered Mr Swan the opportunity for a debate at the National Press Club on Tuesday.
“I would like to debate him next Tuesday,” Mr Costello said.
“I have offered him the opportunity for a debate, and I think we ought to talk about the economy and I think we ought to talk about the way in which he and Mr Rudd have opposed economic reform.”
Mr Swan has said he will definitely be there.
I suspect it will be like watching Muhammad Ali take on Mr T, but lets wait and see.
