Mrs Nelson, you keep repeating the same things over and over as though by doing so they will become true.
Firstly, Mrs May is not in hiding. Virtually everyday she has been out in the community in different parts of the country, knocking on doors and pressing the flesh. She has also been maintaining her Prime Ministerial duties which she will continue to do until the results of the election are known. Just because she hasn't knocked on your door in El Galan doesn't mean that she is in hiding.
There is no point in "debating" with Corbyn on the TV; they are such polar opposites that it would be a complete waste of time. However, they will both be on TV in front of a live audience, one after the other, on the BBC.
A year ago you were demanding that a general election should be called so that the UK could choose a Prime Minister. Now that an election has been called you are moaning that Mrs May is "Our unassainable by default leader" (I think that you meant unassailable). If the Conservatives are returned as the governing body in June, then she will not be by default.
I have repeatedly said that everyone has their own opinions on what they think Brexit means or should mean. What is fact is that the voting public called on the British government to leave the membership of the EU. Do you honestly think that any government can ask the public about every aspect of the negotiations? The process would take decades/hundreds of years.
If in 5 years time, the voters don't like the deal that is negotiated by 2019, then they can elect a party that proposes that the UK re-joins the EU. That is how democracy works in the UK; new governments can hold votes in Parliament to repeal previous governments' laws. In the meantime, the next government, assuming that it is a Tory one, will try to get the best deal for the UK that they can get. Rather that than Corbyn, who has voted against the EU ever since he became an MP ( he has always wanted to come out), who would come back from negotiations with Brussels claiming that he couldn't get a good deal, or give in to every one of their demands, so that the UK was staying in.
You say that he is a man of principle, but this is just one of his principles that he is prepared to throw overboard just so that he can pretend to oppose the Conservatives.
