Theresa May labelled 'scared' by fellow leaders for skipping TV debate

Theresa May labelled 'scared' by fellow leaders for skipping TV debate

Wood shot back "I'm not Natalie, I'm Leanne" and Nuttall was castigated by the Greens' Caroline Lucas, for just "picking another woman's name".

Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP leader, accused Mrs May of pursuing a "hard and extreme" Brexit and not having the "guts" to be there while Leanne Wood, of Plaid Cymru, said the Tories paid more attention to Gibraltar's interests than Wales's.

It's thought ht may have confused Wood for the former Green party leader Natalie Bennett.

That is weak leadership - weak and unstable.

Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood, the Green Party's Caroline Lucas and Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, were equally scathing as they derided Tory policies unchallenged.

"But she appealed to the memory of the Second World War as she pleaded for an end to child poverty and reforms for clean energy".

Ms Lucas called for all of the minor parties to band together to oppose Brexit - while clarifying that she did not want to work with Ukip or Paul Nuttall.

And Mr Corbyn says he will not attend a debate which does not feature the Prime Minister.

Sturgeon said Corbyn's absence was a sign his party was not providing adequate opposition to the Tories.

All of the four progressive parties on stage made overtures to voters that they could act as a "strong opposition" to the Conservatives. "Theresa May, why not debate me?" he said.

He added: "The public deserve to see a debate between the only two people who could form the next government".

ITV said that the invitation to May and Corbyn remained open right up until the 8pm transmission, however, if they didn't show, they would face the "ignominy" of being "empty chaired".

ITV had said it would not accept representatives, or spokespeople, to appear in the place of the party leaders.

Remoaner politicians threatened to try to derail Brexit as they went head to head in the first televised leaders debate of the General Election.
