Paul Nuttall Keeps Calling Leanne Wood 'Natalie' During ITV Leaders' Debate

May confirmed she had no intention of participating in a head-to-head debate with the Labour leader shortly after calling the snap poll.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the main opposition Labour Party, also declined to attend the debate, citing May's absence.

In his opening statement, Mr Nuttall said only Ukip are "truly committed to the Brexit that people voted for" in last year's referendum.

He said: 'The Brexit negotiation between Brussels and London will have outcomes none of us can predict. She also warned about the risks posed by wider trade deals the government might negotiate.

And she had she has declared that she is willing to walk away rather than be saddled with a bad deal which could hobble Britain for decades. The stage will have the right number of podiums for leaders who attend on the night.

Ms Sturgeon, Scotland's First Minister, accused Theresa May of pursing "a hard, extreme Brexit".

It's possible he wasn't listening as later in the debate he referred to her as Natalie again.


Ms Sturgeon jokingly described the Ukip chief as a "spokesperson" for the Prime Minister as she attempted to paint the Tories as careering towards an economically unsafe form of leaving the EU.

And she said that the Green Party would hold another vote in a move created to derail Brexit.

The Ukip leader insisted last week that his party will not challenge key Tory candidates in the General Election campaign, and was humiliated as he struggled to slap down Mrs May's Brexit in order to promote his own party's policies.

He said: 'The bottom line is this, the people have voted - they voted to leave the European Union, to leave the single market, and Tim can cry about it all he wants'. "Theresa May, why not debate me?" he said.

However, SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, whose relationship with the PM has become more and more embittered of late, as they clashed over the proposal for a second Scottish independence referendum, said May "did not have the guts to be here tonight, but her spokesman in the form of [UKIP leader] Paul Nuttall is here in her place".

The ITV Leaders' Debate will be broadcast live on ITV at 8pm on Thursday May 18th.
