Ladies and gentleman, who is ready to see the most boring debate on Brexit in Brexit history?

In an interview with Sky News reporter Sophy Ridge, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said he is challenging Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to a debate before the European Parliamentary elections and people are all thinking the same thing: what debate?

Let's have a look at our two contrasting politicians who may or may not fight it out in the ring.

In the blue corner, we have Nigel Farage, previously a member of the Conservative Party and also the official challenger of this debate, who has said that he would love to debate Corbyn "because people are very confused as to what Labour is standing for".

The former UKIP leader has repeatedly said that his Brexit Party is trying to target the “five million people” who voted Leave in 2016 and voted for Labour in 2017, a claim which has since been debunked.

Since the referendum, Farage has been busy launching a new Brexit Party, driving around in a snazzy new Brexit bus, and let's not forget, his highly-attended March to Leave march.

In the red corner, we have Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, whose obscure view on Brexit has confused people on both the left and the right.

He has just been urged by the prime minister herself to "put their differences aside" and agree on a Brexit deal, but has generally been very quiet about the whole situation.

Meanwhile, Farage warned Theresa May against striking a softer Brexit compromise deal with Mr Corbyn as he said it would represent a “final betrayal” for Leave voters.

So it's just too bad that this so-called "debate", wouldn't really be a debate at all, and the internet agrees.

Let the games begin.
