No-show May fails to defend record : Morning Star

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.




  1. Has anyone else noticed the change in coverage of Corbyn in the media to a more favorable one? Even he himself seems to have had a professional revamp. It is almost as if it has been decided there should be a change.

    1. I agree Loccie. The voting system only gives us the illusion of having a choice.

      Whilst Corbyn has been smartened up and media trained. Theresa May seems to have turned into a pantomine villain, making more and more reckless policy statements, that even Tory voters find unpalatable, and saying they can’t vote for.
