Jeremy Corbyn has accepted Theresa May’s challenge to debate Brexit with her on live TV, saying he would ‘relish’ it – and a date has been provisionally set for Sunday 9 December.
Given her complete aversion to a head-to-head debate during the 2017 general election campaign and the stark contrast between Corbyn’s natural ease and the awkwardness of the ‘MayBot’, May will no doubt be looking desperately for some – any – excuse to duck out of the debate.
Amber Rudd may well be expecting a call – just as she had to stand in for the cowardly PM last year in spite of the death of her father just two days earlier.
