BBC Election Debate Corbyn v Rudd – Labour Party leader clashed with Home Secretary Amber Rudd.  She was representing the Conservative Party.  Theresa May chose not to appear in the debate

Theresa May’s political rivals lined up to criticise her for not taking part in a seven-way general election debate.

She was accused of lacking “guts” and of “running away from the debate” during the 90 minute BBC TV event.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who represented the Conservatives, said “part of being a good leader is having a good, strong team”.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn did not directly attack Mrs May’s absence as he clashed with Ms Rudd over cuts.

The prime minister ruled out appearing on televised debates soon after calling the election.
