Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn face tough questions on live TV

He said: "Those nearest to me and those loved ones everywhere have a totally unreasonable amount of pressure put on them, and they always have done, all of my life, and I have a great deal of sympathy for them and a great deal of thanks to give them all, every one".

Mr Corbyn, a lifelong opponent of nuclear weapons who has made clear that he would never authorise their use, nevertheless indicated he would issue the customary final instructions to the commanders of the Trident submarine fleet if he became prime minister. The Tories dispatched their genial attack dog David Gauke on to social media to weigh in on Corbyn's backbencher comments on the IRA and the Falklands but, while the man aiming to be PM will continue to face questions over some very unwise remarks, he didn't fall apart in the way his opponents had hoped.

"I will write the appropriate letter to our commanders who are obviously very responsible, very loyal naval officers", he said.

Mr Corbyn was also pressed on his previous campaigning in Northern Ireland, with an audience member accusing him of attending a commemoration for members of the IRA, an Irish paramilitary group.

Oduba said critics viewed Mr Corbyn as "more of an activist" than a potential prime minister, but Mr Corbyn said: "Is there a difference?"

"Doing what is the right thing by the country".

He added: "I think if you are to lead, you have to be prepared to listen as well, and I enjoy that".


The Labour leader replied: "What is your estimate?" "I felt that she was exploiting the situation".

Mr Corbyn defended journalists after Barnett said she was subjected to abuse online, some of which appeared to be anti-Semitic, with several Twitter users calling her a "Zionist".

He said: "We have to cut off the funds for IS, cut off the arms for IS, cut off their publicity as well, but also bring about a peace process in Syria by reconvening the Geneva talks, including all the neighbouring countries as well as Iran, but also bring about a constructive dialogue in Libya, so we don't have huge areas of that country, with all its oil wealth, ungoverned and a prey for this kind of thing".

During her session in front of the studio audience, Mrs May insisted she had given the police the resources they needed but acknowledged that numbers in England and Wales had fallen by around 20,000. She rebuffed his repeated attempts to get her to say whether she now thinks leaving the European Union is a good idea, saying only that the British voters have decided and that she is determined to get the best deal possible.

But Paxman set the tone by saying that if he were an European Union negotiator who had observed all her recent flip flops, he would think of her as a "blowhard who collapses at the first sound of gunfire".

"We are doing the right thing in making a success of Brexit", she said, vowing to maintain her reputation as a "bloody hard woman" during talks with European Union leaders if her party wins the election and keeps power.
