Are the Liberal Democrats lacking in basic understanding that people do not want another referendum.

On Thursday night leaders of five political parties took part in an ITV live debate.

Taking part in the two-hour show broadcast from Salford were Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron, Ukip’s Paul Nuttall, the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon, Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood and Green co-leader Caroline Lucas.

ITV News asked ten voters from across the UK with a mixture of political opinions to give their feedback.

When asked what they thought of Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn refusing to take part in the debate, many said they were in the wrong with one voter saying Theresa May’s decision was about control.

“She’s done it so she can control the situation, so she doesn’t have any bad press whatsoever apart from not turning up,” said one voter.

Despite a mixture of pro and anti-Brexit opinions on the sofa there was no appetite for another referendum. When ITV News asked if anyone would vote Lib Dem as they are offering a second referendum, nine said no with just one saying he would like another chance to vote remain.

When Ukip’s Paul Nuttall said immigration was too high voters in support of Brexit did not disagree.
