THERESA MAY was accused of “running scared” from Thursday night’s televised leaders’ debates after she repeatedly refused invitations to appear and defend her appalling record.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also declined the invitation, saying he would not take part in a debate without the Prime Minister.
As the debate got under way, Mr Corbyn tweeted: “Theresa May, why not debate me?
“The public deserve to see a debate between the only two people who could form the next government.”
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, Ukip boss Paul Nuttall, Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood and Green co-leader Caroline Lucas appeared on ITV’s prime-time debate.
Ms Wood slammed Ms May’s “weak and unstable” leadership reflected in her decision not to join the debate.
She addressed Ms May in her opening statement, saying: “You may be too scared to come here tonight, for your U-turns to be highlighted, for your cruel policies to be exposed.
