bbc debate

Voters’ opinions are split on whether Theresa May was right to refuse to take part in TV debates - but most are still planning
In reality, May was damned if she did and damned if she didn't. By not taking part, she was accused of running scared from the voters. But if she had turned up, she could have been accused of dancing to Corbyn's tune, being seen to follow his lead in participating rather than following her own judgement. It would have been mocked as another u-turn.
Audience members were contacted by telephone and rescreened on several key questions to ensure consistency between those and their initial answers. This enabled us to identify inconsistencies and potentially to exclude those individuals from the audience. The ComRes team checked audience members in before the debate and confirmed yet again the screening criteria.
What is at the heart of this is that Theresa May and 'her team' do not respect or trust ordinary voters enough to make a judgement - and that can't be good for this country. She and they don't even trust core Tory voters enough to have Mrs May show a bit of courage under adversity and earn their respect.
Corbyn's decision to walk on stage allows Labour to spend the remaining eight days of the campaign hammering home the message that May is running scared. Just as during the two Labour leadership campaigns, when Corbyn would leave the gritty attacks to his allies, the tactic was immediately clear.
