BBC debate: Watch leaders unite to condemn Theresa May's absence
Jun 03, 2017, 04:21
The Mirror claims the real loser of Wednesday night's debate was the Prime Minister, calling her party "leaderless and heartless" after she opted not to take part and send Ms Rudd as a stand-in.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron launched a string of attacks on May.
A noisy and ill-tempered TV election debate began and ended with Jeremy Corbyn and the UK's minor parties condemning Theresa May for failing to turn up.
The Sun pulls no punches, suggesting that Mr Corbyn was "walloped" by all six opponents in the debate, saying the Labour leader was subjected to a "withering assault" from Conservative Amber Rudd when quizzed on how his party would fund its manifesto promises.
But Mr Nuttall rebuked by shouting "You invited Hamas, you invited Hamas to the House of Commons", referring to when Mr Corbyn called the members "friends".
The Greens co-leader was praised for challenging Ms Rudd about why the United Kingdom is the second biggest arms dealer in the world, while Mr Robertson was commended for accusing Labour of "aping Ukip" on immigration.
But Ms Rudd warned that Jeremy Corbyn's spending plans would require a "magic money tree" as she fought back in the heated debate. "She wants five years as prime minister and she thinks you'll give it to her, no questions asked - literally", he said.
"Amber, have you been to a food bank? The Prime Minister didn't have the guts to come along this evening to tell us". The participants returned to their core messages in their final statements, with Mr Corbyn promising that Labour would vote "for the many, not the few" and framing the election as a choice over "whether older people get the dignity they deserve or see their incomes fall". "Have you seen people sleeping around our stations?" he said.
But the most powerful finale came from Mr Farron, who won loud applause when he said: "You're not worth Theresa May's time".
Ms Rudd said next week's election was about choosing the strongest leadership to take Britain through Brexit.
Mr Corbyn defended his speech last week linking the Manchester bombing to Britain's military interventions overseas, winning support from Mr Robertson and applause from the audience.
Singling out Mr Robertson over the SNP's calls for another independence referendum, she said: "I know that for Angus, there's no referendum result he will accept, every one seems to be wrong to him".
