    Does anyone even care? Most people minds are already made up. Tory majority on the horizon even if Corbyn pulls a rabbit out his backside.

    I wouldn't be too sure. Theresa mays manifesto is absolutely terrible, she's cutting pensions for the elderly and social care, axing free school meals, and there's no evidence she wants to help finance the NHS.

    She's not making herself look any better by refusing to debate with other leaders. She comes across as a complete coward tbh
    They don't need a good manifesto and there would be no point in a debate since she would only have something to lose from taking part in one. If the Tories had published no manifesto they are still going to win in a landslide.

    Majority of the country wants Brexit to be done and she has positioned herself as the only legitimate figure to do so and the priority of Brexit this election over rides that of any other issue.

    Even if that means coming out of the single market and making digs at all the politicians...

    That's ridiculous. People should and do vote based on manifestos, regardless of how parties have done previously in local elections. Any media that Theresa has done has been carefully managed and staged, if she did participate in a debate I'd doubt she'd be able to handle questions well.

    This general election is not about brexit. It's a chance to rid ourselves of a Tory government which is responsible for brexit and it's results.
    She's too scared to speak to "common people" because she's distanced herself in the snobbery that is the Tory party

    Maybe you and people you know vote by reading the manifestos but normal people don't. They vote based on ideas, preconceptions and emotions. May like Cameron is very much uncomfortable with having debates with their opponenets, she can just skip them. She will win either way she could do without the stress and risk.

    So the Tory government is 52% of British voters? I thought this was a sensible discussion... oh well.

    No doubt the Tory top brass are snobs. So is the Labour party top brass full of snobs and hypocrites like Emily Thornberry and Diane Abbott

    Who will come out best? Labour, because all the super irrelevant parties will show how hopeless they are.

    I know, that's why I won't be voting Tory.
    May campaigns for 'strong and stable leadership', yet she can't even face ordinary people.
    Earlier in her manifesto today, everything she said sounded so scripted
    Strong and stable lmao she looks so fragile I could snap her like a twig and her voice literally quivers when she speaks I'm not voting them either

    I think it's an absolute disgrace that a xenophobic, racist bigot like Paul Nuttall is given a platform to spread his hateful rhetoric.

    I've sent a complaint to ITV and I would urge everybody else to do the same.
