Leaders debate climate change on Channel 4 but Boris and Farage give it a miss – The Sun


ALL eyes will be on Boris Johnson today after the Tories’ explosive row with Channel 4.

The PM and Nigel Farage were replaced by ice sculptures in last night’s climate debate.

The Conservatives called that a “provocative, partisan stunt” and accused the broadcaster of bias in an official complaint to the watchdog Ofcom.

Senior Tory Michael Gove offered to stand in for the leader and was filmed arriving at the studio only to be turned away.

Channel 4 News editor Ben de Pear said Jeremy Corbyn and Nicola Sturgeon refused to let him join them in what was billed as a leaders’ debate.

During the discussion, LibDem leader Jo Swinson was forced to defend her air travel to and from her constituency in Scotland – blaming “Victorian trains”.

And Mr Corbyn was challenged about his party’s failure to commit to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Earlier yesterday the Labour leader appeared to forget where he was, saying how much he loved Dorset during a speech in Hampshire.

He also stumbled over the number of trees he pledged to plant as PM, and forgot the name of protest group Extinction Rebellion – calling them “the climate extinction people”.

He has no campaign stops planned today and will also swerve the BBC’s seven-way Question Time debate – which Mr Johnson will also shun.
