Brexit takes centre stage in leaders' TV debate

  Brexit takes centre stage in leaders' TV debate UKIP's leader Paul Nuttall found himself outnumbered by 4-1 on Brexit and other issues in a party leaders' TV debate that was snubbed by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.  Mr Nuttall was also isolated on immigration and grammar schools as he battled against the Lib Dems' Tim Farron, Caroline Lucas of the Greens, the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon and Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru.But the UKIP leader didn't help his cause when on two occasions during the debate he called Leanne Wood "Natalie", presumably confusing her with former Green Party leader Natalie Bennett.

Jeremy Corbyn is attacking the Tory manifesto proposals on social care, claiming Theresa May's "nasty party has launched a shameful attack on older people". 

Corbyn won't play immigration 'numbers game'

  Corbyn won't play immigration 'numbers game' Jeremy Corbyn has said that the Labour Party's immigration policy would reflect "fair immigration based on the needs of our society".Speaking to Sophy Ridge On Sunday, the Labour leader refused to give a direct response to the question on whether there should be more or less immigration post-Brexit several times.

The party's candidate Tasha Osben said her local branch had increased its membership by more than 300 since Jeremy Corbyn became leader, and claimed the Labour manifesto should appeal to UKIP voters. Top Stories. Corbyn accuses May of ' shameful attack ' on elderly .

The shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, is also claiming the Conservative manifesto threatens the living standards of pensioners and working people.

On Twitter, the Labour leader claimed: "If you're a pensioner @Theresa_May is taking your vote for granted. She'll take away your winter fuel payment. Labour won't."

And in a second tweet, he said: "If you're a pensioner, @Theresa_May takes you for granted. She'll make you pay for visits from care workers if you own a home. Labour won't."

"Those elderly people who've been worried about how they pay for care in their home won't have to worry about that in the future," she said.

"They won't have to pay while they're still alive, they won't have to sell their home while they're living in it.

"What we also see is those people who are worried that their savings - have done the right thing and saved through their life and worried their savings will dwindle to nothing - we're quadrupling the threshold at which assets will be protected to one hundred thousand pounds."

But Mr Corbyn said later: "Theresa May's nasty party has launched a shameful attack on older people - introducing a compassion tax to force those in need of social care to pay for it with their family home. Labour is standing up for pensioners and guaranteeing the triple-lock on state pensions, as well as giving social care the funding it needs."

Labour claims the Tory manifesto places three new burdens on older people:

:: Scrapping the 'triple lock' on state pensions
:: Means testing Winter Fuel Payments - hitting 10 million pensioners
:: Forcing those who need social care to pay for it using their home

While Labour accuses the Tories of threatening pensioners' living standards, the Conservatives are making a pitch to Labour voters in Scotland as they launch their Scottish manifesto.

The Prime Minister campaigned in Scotland only a few weeks ago and now the Tories' Scottish leader Ruth Davidson will claim that with the "help" of Labour voters, her party can defeat the Scottish National Party in "many places" across Scotland.

The SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon, was one of five party leaders taking part in a TV debate last night that was snubbed by the Prime Minister and Mr Corbyn.

And yet - bizarrely - while the debate was going on, the Labour leader posted another tweet, saying: "Theresa May, why not debate me?"

"The public deserve to see a debate between the only two people who could form the next government."

But the Conservative Party chairman Sir Patrick McLoughlin said after the debate: "Tonight gave a glimpse of the chaos you could get in just three weeks with all the other parties propping up Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister.

"Getting Brexit right is central to everything - and it's clear this coalition of chaos just want to return to division, and would undermine our Brexit negotiation and Britain's long-term economic security. It's too big a risk and we'd all pay the price with higher taxes, more debt and fewer jobs."
