Theresa May Running Scared of Debating Nicola Sturgeon
Angus Robertson MP has accused Theresa May of ‘running scared’ of television debates ahead of the General Election.
Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions, the SNP Westminster Leader said the SNP looked forwarded to the straight fight between the Tories and the SNP in Scotland, but called on the Prime Minister to say why she would not participate in a televised debate with Nicola Sturgeon and other party leaders.
Angus Robertson also said the tone and content of democratic debate, especially in a General Election, is important and asked Theresa May if she agreed with him that political opponents are not saboteurs, and that all elected mainstream parties and parliamentarians have a mandate and should be respected – following the front page of today's Daily Mail.
Commenting, Angus Robertson MP said:
“If the Prime Minister is so confident of her hard-Brexit, pro-austerity, anti-immigration case why won’t she debate opposition leaders?
“Most people in the country know that the Prime Minister wants an early General Election because the Labour Party is in such an awful state.
“We look forward to the straight fight between the Tories and the SNP in Scotland, but can the Prime Minister tell people why she is running scared of a televised debate with Nicola Sturgeon?”
