BBC debate viewers criticise Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘foggy and wonky’ glasses

Brits watching tonight’s BBC debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn have lashed out at the Labour leader's “foggy” and “wonky glasses.

The Prime Minister and Corbyn are going head-to-head on Brexit, the NHS, and terrorism.

However, a raft of viewers have been distracted by the opposition leader’s frames.

One tweeted: “I wish someone would clean Corbyn’s glasses.”

Another asked: “Are Corbyn's glasses wonky again?”

A third added: “I wish someone would buy Jeremy Corbyn a pair of glasses that fit him properly.”

Tonight’s showdown kicked off at 8.30pm this evening and is being hosted by the BBC’s former political editor Nick Robinson.

Corbyn faced similar criticism during last month’s ITV debate with the PM.

A snap poll was carried out afterwards, ending in a slim victory for Johnson.

YouGov surveyed 1,646 viewers, with 51% backing Johnson and 49% coming out for Corbyn.

The PM has since ducked an Andrew Neil grilling on BBC, and was replaced with an ice sculpture after he refused to take part in a Channel 4 debate on the climate.

His dad Stanley, 79, turned alongside the PM’s pal Michael Gove as they tried to “argue their way” on to the programme.

In a bruising Andrew Neil interview last week, Corbyn refused to apologise to British Jews for Labour’s handling of anti-Semitism.

Before it aired, Britain’s Chief Rabbi claimed “a new poison” had “taken root” within the party.

The Tories have maintained a strong lead over Labour throughout the election campaign.

Research released by Savanta ComRes earlier this week, commissioned by the Daily Telegraph, shows the Conservatives with a 10-point lead over Labour.

The data suggests the two main parties have both lost one point – now sitting at 42 per cent and 32 per cent.

The poll, conducted with 2,041 people between December 2 and 3, also found support for the Lib Dems and Brexit Party has also dropped, with both parties also losing a point.
