'Theresa May's spokesperson' Nicola Sturgeon HUMILIATES Paul Nuttall during live TV debate

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the main opposition Labour Party, also declined to attend the debate, citing May's absence.

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.

He added that "suggesting people didn't know what they voted for was downright duplicitous".

The most notable thing about this debate is that Conservative leader Theresa May has said that she does not plan to do it, so chance are we might have at least one empty seat.

Ms Lucas said she thinks Britain should be able to stay in the European Union, and keep our borders open to the bloc, telling the audience: 'It's a wonderful thing that we can live and work and be in these other member states'.

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.

The two-hour debate saw leaders from the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and the Scottish National Party (SNP).

Thousands demonstrate against new French president Macron
Macron's landslide win over the far-right's Marine Le Pen has been hailed a victory of hope and optimism, over fear and reaction. Le Pen's campaign advisers say the National Front is now the "primary opposition party in the country".

Green Party co-leader Ms Lucas condemned the "cruel, callous Government" and said "the sooner it goes the better". "She thinks she owns our country, owns our future and owns our children's future".

And Ms Sturgeon pledged to "stand up to an extreme Brexit" and hold the Tories to account.

She said: "Theresa May may not have the guts to be here but her spokesman Paul Nuttall is in her place".

Mr Nuttall made the gaffes as he argued that Britain should adopt an Australian-style points system for migrants when the United Kingdom finally leaves the clutches of the Brussels bloc.

The Liberal Democrat leader said: 'Theresa May, backed by Nigel Farage and Jeremy Corbyn, is going for an extreme Brexit deal that will damage our future for generations'.

But it turned out to be a false alarm - and was in fact a Labour leader lookalike, who was filmed walking towards the venue at Salford Quays.

"Brexit would never have happened if it wasn't for Ukip", he said.
