Will you tune in to the first General Election televised debate?
The first televised debate of the General Election campaign will take place on Tuesday evening between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The Liberal Democrats and the SNP have lost a High Court challenge against ITV over its decision to exclude their party leaders from Tuesday’s first television debate, and will therefore not take part.
The two parties had taken ITV to court, saying their exclusion deprived voters of the chance to make their own decisions.
The broadcasters have announced a series of debates, including two head-to-heads after reaching an agreement between the Tories and Labour, one three-way debate and one seven-way debate.
A head-to-head debate between Mr Johnson and Mr Corbyn will be aired on ITV on Tuesday at 8pm.
Sky will host a three-way debate including Mr Johnson, Mr Corbyn and Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson on November 28.
The next day, the BBC will host a seven-way debate in Cardiff on November 29, between leaders or senior figures from the seven major GB political parties.
The broadcaster will then host a “prime ministerial debate” on December 6 from Southampton between Mr Corbyn and Mr Johnson.
Will you be tuning in to the first televised debate between Mr Johnson and Mr Corbyn? If you choose not to, why won’t you be watching? Have you watched previous debates? Will style or substance win the day?
