Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn to face questions on live TV

She was more confident on Brexit, winning applause when she repeated that no deal was better than a bad deal on leaving the EU.

If the prime minister struggled under questioning from Mr Paxman and the studio audience, Mr Corbyn exceeded expectations, remaining calm and pleasant throughout.

He also faced questions about his record of opposing British military interventions overseas, including the Falklands War.

"I will write the appropriate letter to our commanders who are obviously very responsible, very loyal naval officers", he said.

One audience member claimed Mr Corbyn had "openly supported the IRA in the past" by attending a commemoration for eight IRA members killed by the SAS.

Asked for his approach to tackling violent Islamist extremism, Mr Corbyn said: "We have to cut off the funds for IS, cut off the arms for IS, cut off their publicity as well, but also bring about a peace process in Syria by reconvening the Geneva talks". "I have been active in politics, human rights and many things all my life".

Ms Barnett said: "I presume you have the figures?"

"You have to. In negotiations, you have to recognise that you're not in there to get a deal at any price". "I felt that she was exploiting the situation".

He said he described the death of Osama Bin Laden as a "tragedy" because he wanted him to be arrested and put on trial.


He concludes his beliefs with, "In my opinion we need a Labour government to give young people a hope, a chance for their future and I genuinely believe that Corbyn is the man to do it... it's a Corbyn ting, not a Tory ting".

"You should never be so high and mighty you can't listen to somebody else and learn something from them", he said.

Mr Corbyn defended journalists after Barnett said she was subjected to abuse online, some of which appeared to be anti-Semitic, with several Twitter users calling her a "Zionist".

During her session in front of the studio audience, Mrs May insisted she had given the police the resources they needed but acknowledged that numbers in England and Wales had fallen by around 20,000.

THERESA May has denied being a "blow-hard who collapses at the first sign of gunfire" as she came under pressure in a live TV interview on the number of U-turns she has made while Prime Minister.

"But if you don't vote at this election and if you don't vote for me at this election you risk sleepwalking into the very real danger that Jeremy Corbyn will find himself in the hot seat, in the negotiating chair on your behalf".

You can make your own mind up about whether you would rather the mass murderer have been tried in a USA court and sent to rot in jail - or believe it was right he was blown to bits by American special forces - but Corbyn was able to set out why he had taken the former view.

He said he would start the Brexit negotiations seriously and would not countenance the idea of leaving the European Union without a deal.
