ITV scrap plans for May Corbyn Brexit debate - The Guardian

ITV has withdrawn the plans for a Brexit debate on Sunday night, meaning that there is hardly a match between Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May on television before a decisive vote next week.

In one of the most despicable and desperate stories of the Brexit trial, the station abandoned its planned debate over the Prime Minister's withdrawal, even though Downing Street had negotiated behind-the-scenes for two weeks in its proposed head-to-head format.

Earlier this week, the BBC announced that it was continuing its rival campaign to host the debate after being angered by Jeremy Corbyn's team, which was unwilling to allow representatives of smaller parties and proponents of a second referendum to attend a panel ,

Both the Conservatives and the Labor Party accuse each other of failing to agree on the principles. At one point, the impasse meant that two rival debates by the ITV and the BBC were scheduled for the same period of time, without knowing if either leader would turn up. In the end all offers of May and Corbyn collapsed.
