Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn loom large in ITV leaders' debate

Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn loom large in ITV leaders' debate

Theresa May was denounced for lacking "the guts" to participate in the party leaders' election debate broadcast on Thursday night.

Ms Wood said Wales had been disregarded after Brexit, saying: "Gibraltar has had more attention than Wales has had, so it's vital we have a strong team of Plaid Cymru MPs to advocate for Wales's national interests and to make sure that the Tories don't get away with an extreme Brexit that would cause serious harm for many people in many communities throughout the United Kingdom".

The reaction in the press this morning is nearly unanimous: the two-hour broadcast was spectacularly boring - and irrelevant.

"If the British government ends the free movement of people, that will have its price", she said.

The problem, he continues, was that two of the leaders "explicitly reject any role for their parties in the government of the UK", while the other three have a combined tally of just ten MPs, so there was "no purpose" to the debate.

Theresa May took part in her first ever Facebook Live Q&A on ITV earlier this week.

"May - backed by Nigel Farage and Jeremy Corbyn - is going for an extreme Brexit deal that will damage our future for generations", Farron said.

North Korea: New long-range missile can carry heavy nuke

China pledges $124 billion for new Silk Road plan
The huge amount will contribute to the Silk Road Fund, which was set up in 2014 to finance infrastructure projects. What is China's new Silk Road? The China Development Bank has earmarked $890 billion for some 900 projects.

Mr Corbyn issued a direct challenge to the Prime Minister to take part in a debate during an ITV News Facebook Live Q&A session with voters on Monday.

Mr Nuttall was attacked over Brexit by each of the four other leaders on the stage - Lib Dem chief Tim Farron, the Green's Caroline Lucas, Ms Wood and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Both Farron and Lucas believe people should get the chance to vote in another European Union referendum.

Seizing on Mrs May's election mantra of "strong and stable leadership", Ms Wood added: "That's weak leadership - weak and unstable".

The outspoken politician was corrected by Leanne Wood after calling her "Natalie".

A source at Ukip said the green rooms backstage were abuzz with the rumour, as aides began scrambling to recalibrate their plans for a six-way debate. It's thought ht may have confused Wood for the former Green party leader Natalie Bennett. To which Leanne replied: "I'm not Natalie, I'm Leanne".
