Iain Dale: PM's Fundamental Duty To Take Part In TV Debates


Theresa May will not join other party leaders in a TV debate tonight - but Iain Dale has pointed out why that is completely wrong.

The LBC presenter explained how it was the “fundamental duty” of any party leader to take part in election debates during their campaign.

The Prime Minister will instead be represented by the Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

Jeremy Corbyn, who previously ruled out taking part, announced today he now would take to the stage and debate leaders from other political parties.

“I get why the Prime Minister isn’t doing this,” Iain said.

“At the beginning of the election she had nothing to lose by not doing it, she wasn’t going to go down in the polls by not doing it.

“I didn’t agree with her non-participation then, and I don’t agree with it now.”

Watch his passionate rant in full above.
