Earlier today, Jeremy Corbyn surprised almost everyone by announcing that he would, after all, participate in this evening’s leaders’ debate on BBC television:

It was a stunning move that caught Theresa May and her advisers completely by surprise and left the Tory leader floundering.
During a press conference that had clearly been arranged before Corbyn’s announcement but couldn’t be cancelled without looking totally afraid, a sweating and ill-at-ease Mrs May faced a barrage of questions from journalists that had the Prime Minister in meltdown – strange giggles, stammers and facial expressions that clearly showed how desperate May was to be anywhere other than in front of the cameras answering questions.
Anywhere apart from in a studio facing Jeremy Corbyn, at least.
Sky showed footage of the press conference, but the SKWAWKBOX has prepared a version that shows the near-panic Mrs May was in:
The contrast between the confident, even rampant Corbyn and the ‘weak and wobbly’ Theresa May could not be plainer. There is no doubt about who has the momentum in the campaign. No wonder the Tories are – as they admit anonymously – in a panic.
