May, Corbyn clash over Brexit plans with UK vote 1 week away

May, Corbyn clash over Brexit plans with UK vote 1 week away

But they also represent a challenge to other "progressive" parties to support a Labour minority government or face a return to Tory rule.

The opposition Labour party polled 39% against the Conservatives' 42%.

A poll by YouGov for the Times has suggested that Labour has cut the Conservatives' lead to just three points, making a hung parliament more than possible if repeated in a week's time.

There was slightly better news for May from a Panelbase poll which put her party 8 points ahead of Labour, but that still meant the Conservatives' advantage had nearly halved in a week. But if she fails to beat the 12-seat majority her predecessor David Cameron won in 2015, her electoral gamble will have failed and her authority will be seriously undermined. That's what we are fighting to do.

'If we are the largest party, we go ahead, no deals, ' says Emily Thornberry.

"But remember this is just a snapshot of a period of time, not a prediction - the Conservative vote share remains high, May is still seen as the most capable PM, and they still have the support of older people".

In what has been described as one of the most left-wing Labour manifestos for decades, Labour has also promised to take on multinational corporations and what Corbyn has called "wealth extractors". "We are not doing deals, we're not doing coalitions, we're not doing any agreements".

Paul Whiteley, from the University of Essex, is also helping us understand the volatile situation we're now seeing in the election polls. "That is what we are looking forward to doing on June 9".

Any such requests undergo rigorous legal reviews, and USA officials have said all such requests under Obama, a Democrat, were conducted properly.

He said the Tories are "weak and wobbly" and can not be believed following the PM's U-turn on the so-called "dementia tax" and her failure to set out how many pensioners stand to lose their winter fuel payments, policies which have been widely credited as a major factor in the narrowing of the polls.

With one week to go until the June 8 vote, May headed to the Brexit-backing northeast of England in a bid to refocus the debate on her vow to get the best deal for Britain as it leaves the EU.

"While countries including China, Brazil, the USA and the Gulf States have expressed their interest in striking trade deals with us as soon as they can", the Conservative Party leader said.

The Labour leader criticised Theresa May for "needlessly alienating everyone" and accepting "the worst of all deals" which is the "economic disaster" of no deal with 10% tariffs on cars and a "jobs meltdown across Britain".

Theresa May will set out her vision for a "Britain beyond Brexit" as she attempts to seize control of the agenda with a week to go to polling day.

In the event of no party winning a majority in the House of Commons, May as prime minister will have the first opportunity to form a government with the support of other parties.

"Brexit negotiations start 11 days after you vote, but instead of focusing on those negotiations, Corbyn would be busy haggling with Nicola Sturgeon and the Lib Dems".
