Ed Miliband has once again urged David Cameron to take him on in a one-on-one debate during the BBC opposition leaders’ debate.
Making his final statement, Miliband stared into the camera and demanded Cameron “let the people decide” and “debate me one-on-one.”
Cameron was absent from the debate which focused on the ‘opposition parties’. Cameron has refused previous requests from both Miliband and the main British Broadcasters for a one-on-one debate.
Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg weighed in on twitter, saying he would debate Miliband “anytime anywhere”.

Cameron was fiercely criticised for his absence with Miliband suggesting he hasn’t turned up for a “job interview” with the British people and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon calling him a “disgrace”.
During the debate Miliband was criticised by Sturgeon for not being “bold enough on his own”, and likewise by Green leader Natalie Bennett who suggested Miliband of being too similar to Cameron.
