Theresa May refusing to debate is an insult to the British public

The live TV debate; an important part of any party's election campaign, you would think. In a bizarre week in which Nigel Farage even extended praise to Corbyn via twitter, Wednesday's leaders debate was also a strange event, given that not all leaders were present.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who stepped in for Theresa May on WednesdayI'm not sure whether Jeremy Corbyn actually changed his mind last minute to attend Wednesday's leaders debate, or whether it's some psychological game he's been planning for weeks, but his arrival in Cambridge was met with both praise and loud cheer from Labour supporters, and I'm certain the surprise appearance has done nothing but bolster his already reasonably successful campaign. Like many young left- wing millennials, and most of the opposition party leaders, I took to Twitter to call Theresa May out on the fact she had failed to appear in a live television debate, instead sending home secretary Amber Rudd on her behalf. It certainly portrays our current prime minister as 'weak and wobbly', but even I must admit given the situation she was in, Amber Rudd held her own reasonably well, given that at times it seemed everyone was against her.
