In the first TV duel between British Prime Minister Johnson and challenger Corbyn before the election in December, both spoke more about each other than to each other. The big issue was, of course, Brexit.
By Imke Koehler, ARD-Studio London.
ITV presenter Julie Etchingham wants to know whether this election is true. “I think so!” Says Boris Johnson, but the audience laughs at this statement. Not a good moment for the prime minister, who is accused of not being too strict with the truth.
Evil laughter has to be heard elsewhere but Johnson’s challenger Jeremy Corbyn. He promises to renegotiate the Brexit deal in the event of an election victory and then to let the population vote in a second referendum on whether the UK should leave the EU with this deal or stay in the EU.
What Corbyn does not want to reveal at all is how he himself would vote in such a referendum. Instead, an evasive answer for the umpteenth time.

A third person debate.
At that point Johnson attacks, questioning whether Corbyn is serious at all. The presenter asks Johnson to address Corbyn directly. But the prime minister and the head of Labor are doing the same thing as in parliamentary debates and speak of each other almost exclusively in the third person, not looking at the other, but looking into the audience.
Attempts at manipulation in the election campaign.
You can still tell that it’s about something. Also because the British politeness is over quickly even with the presenter. Speaking time is fixed, but Johnson regularly overshoots. Questions come from the moderator, from voters who have submitted the questions in advance, and directly from the audience.
Including this: When the Brexit issue will finally be off the table, this lady would like to know. Johnson is in his element. With the new Brexit date, January 31, he had already started the program.

Johnson in his element at Brexit.
The deal is done and ready to go, says Johnson. In this TV duel, he tries to talk about Brexit whenever possible. Corbyn, on the other hand, is trying to bring other issues to the fore, most notably the NHS, the UK health service.
It goes back and forth for an hour.
The TV channel ITV then started a poll on Twitter, in which 78 percent think Jeremy Corbyn is the winner. A quick poll by the polling institute YouGov, on the other hand, came to the conclusion that it was a draw. It was the first TV duel of its kind in British history, but it did not seem to have turned the tide of the election campaign.
