In their first direct television debate, Prime Minister Johnson and Labor leader Corbyn tried to win over voters before the December 12 election. The two-faced their plans for Brexit and public spending. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and opposition Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn debated Brexit on Tuesday night’s first televised debate. Despite an unsafe campaign start, Johnson’s Conservatives are currently conducting a poll with a comfortable margin over Labor, though both leaders wanted to convince undecided voters.
After the Corbyn Johnson showdown, ITV also hosted a separate debate for leaders of smaller parties, including the Scottish National Party (SNP) and the Liberal Democrats, who were excluded from the previous debate. Although Labor lags behind the Conservatives in opinion polls, political analysts have suggested that Corbyn could still become prime minister when forming a coalition with the SNP and the Liberal Democrats.
