Daily Telegraph: Parliamentary sketchwriter Michael Deaconobserves the "outbreak of avian hysteria" on the Labour benches after Ed Miliband called the PM a "chicken" for refusing to take part in the TV leaders' debates unless the Greens are included. "'Cluck-CLUCK-cluck-CLUCK!'. Almost all of them seemed to be at it. The entire opposition, performing a simultaneous chicken impression."
New Statesman: "Cameron's Green shield protects him from Miliband's TV debates attack,"writes political editor George Eaton. He says David Cameron's charge that the Labour leader was "running scared" of the Green Party allowed him to "avoid humiliation" at PMQs.
The Guardian: Senior political correspondent Andrew Sparrowoffers his snap verdict of PMQs: "Given that Cameron's stance on the debates is implausible (and the polls seem to back that up), he did rather a good job at resisting Miliband's withering onslaught, and it wasn't quite the walkover Miliband was perhaps expecting."
The Times: A potential solution to the growing row over the TV debates emerged after David Cameron appeared to suggest that he would be prepared to take part in a head-to-head clash with Ed Miliband and a five-way encounter involving the Greens,writes Philip Webster, political editor of the Times online.
