UKIP's Paul Nuttall keeps calling people 'Natalie' during ITV Debate

UKIP's leader Paul Nuttall found himself outnumbered by 4-1 on Brexit and other issues in a party leaders' TV debate that was snubbed by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.

Farron called Nuttall "the ambassador for Theresa May" in the opening salvo of the debate, echoing the SNP first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, who said the prime minister "did not have the guts to be here tonight but her spokesman in the form of Paul Nuttall is here in her place".

It is not clear whether Mr Nuttall was confusing Ms Wood with Natalie Wood, the U.S. actress, or Natalie Bennett, the former leader of the Green Party.

Oh dear. With both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn opting to give tonight's ITV leaders' debate a miss, leaders of the other political parties had the ideal opportunity to step into the spotlight and make a good impression in front of the electorate.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said Britain should have the choice to "remain in the European Union" while SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon railed against an "extreme Brexit".

"She is not enacting the will of the people; she has chosen to interpret it in an extreme way", Liberal Democrat Party Leader Tim Farron said during the debate in Salford, northwest England.

Ms Sturgeon described him as a "spokesperson" for the Prime Minister, and Ms Lucas proposed all the minor parties working together - but explicitly excluded Ukip. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyyn also declined an invitation to participate in the debate. Both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn sat out.

"You may be too scared to come here tonight", Wood said.

While Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas claimed Labour had "left the field", saying they had not only turned down opportunity for debate but have also written the Tories "a blank cheque" for Hard Brexit. "Brexit, climate change, an NHS in crisis", she said.

"That's weak leadership - weak and unstable".

He said: 'The Brexit negotiation between Brussels and London will have outcomes none of us can predict. "I hope all of us here tonight will show you that real leadership means being willing to defend what you stand for, not hide from it", she said.

Ms Wood replied, "You've done it twice now", and Mr Nuttal replied: "Have I?"
