The two politicians hammered away at their rival’s weaknesses in the first-ever head-to-head TV debate between a British prime minister and a chief challenger.
The first televised debate will be between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Conservatives fear that support for the Brexit Party might make them lose closely contested seats and their majority along with it, while Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage claims that Conservatives want to avoid a 'leave' alliance.
Will Boris Johnson live to fight another day?
Prime Minister Boris Johnson called out his rival and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn over his proposed tax policies. Corbyn dismissed the accusation and promised he only seeks power so that he can share it.
The House of Commons on Tuesday approved the December 12 election in the hope of breaking the deadlock over Britain's departure from the European Union. Johnson's Conservative Party has a wide lead in opinion polls.
Following the EU's approval of an extension of the Brexit deadline to January 2020, British MPs have decided to hold an early election on December 12 in an attempt to break the deadlock over Brexit.
Boris Johnson dares opposition parties to try to topple his government with a no-confidence vote after facing MPs for the first time since the Supreme Court quashed his suspension of parliament.
Landing back home, Johnson will face angry British MPs who return to Westminster following a momentous Supreme Court ruling that the PM's decision to suspend parliament was unlawful.
The British right sees an opportunity in the chaos of Brexit to remake Britain in its image, just as Margeret Thatcher once did.
UK opposition parties say they won't support an election until Britain has secured a delay to the Brexit date, to ensure the country does not crash out of the bloc without a deal.
The law, which would require PM Boris Johnson to seek a three-month delay to Brexit if he does not manage to strike a deal with the EU by October 19, will now go for formal approval by Queen Elizabeth II.
