Looks like there are going to be several of these, but none featuring Teresa May. And if she’s not turning up, Jeremy Corbyn says he won’t turn up either!
I think this is a big mistake – he should be volunteering to appear with the other leaders and be happy to face an empty lectern from the Conservative Party.
Corbyn could make this a theatrical spectacle to physically demonstrate what (I assume) he thinks this election is – a coup by right-wing Conservatives. If he plays it well, and with humour, it could even “go viral” and make lightbulbs go off in heads.

He’s in front of an open goal!
The ball is at his feet!
Corbyn must score! …
He’s wandered off!
