Jeremy Corbyn today firmly parks his battle tank on Theresa May’s lawn of “strong and stable leadership”.
In his hardest-hitting attack yet he challenges the PM to stop hiding from voters and come out fighting – if she dares.
And he declares that if she really believes leadership is the big election issue she should put it to the test in a head-to-head TV debate, a confrontation she has repeatedly ducked.
Mr Corbyn’s move to shift the battleground comes after Labour’s drubbing in local elections in which they lost 380 seats and the Tories gained more than 500.
The Labour leader says that does not mean Mrs May can now keep her head down for the rest of the campaign confident of victory. More on Mirror
