Tony Blair won't endorse Jeremy Corbyn as next PM

"It is yet another nonsensical Jeremy Corbyn plan for the future in terms of Brexit".
After a steel plant tour in Newport, Wales, UK PM Theresa May urged Welsh voters to give her a mandate to negotiate "the best deal" for Britain and Wales.
He insisted that Labour's support would increase over the coming weeks.
"Only a vote for the strong and stable leadership of Theresa May on June 8 will deliver a Brexit deal in Britain's national interest", he said.
"There is real concern among small firms with European Union staff that they will lose access to the skills and labour their business needs to survive and grow".
May has so far been unable to guarantee the rights of European Union residents and has said Britain "cannot possibly" remain part of the single market as it would mean "not leaving the European Union at all". Tory backbencher and long-time Leave supporter Jacob Rees-Mogg told the MailOnline the speech was "an admission the Labour Party has rejected Brexit and with it many of its non-metropolitan voters".
Elsewhere, Labour will make the NHS the focus of their day of campaigning, with shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth set to promise to lift the 1% cap on pay rises for "undervalued" health service workers.
"If we are and we're going for a free trade agreement, rather than membership of the single market, that's a massive for the prosperity of the British economy".
It is not all good news for the Conservatives, however, with more saying that the Government is doing a bad (42%) than good (25%) job in negotiating Brexit.
United Kingdom opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said Sunday that he may suspend British airstrikes on Syria if he is elected prime minister in the country's election of June 8.
However, he refused to be drawn on whether this meant a new deal would include remaining in the EU.
"We want to ensure that Britain is a more secure and united nation - that means acting against the extremists who want to divide us but it also means standing up to the separatists who want to break up this precious union of nations". They are failing to protect the United Kingdom economy by dragging the United Kingdom out of the Single Market. "A Labour Government will never consider these rights a "burden". "Instead they chose to abstain".
When asked whether Mr Corbyn would attend a debate with the other party leaders if the Prime Minister is not taking part, the Labour spokesman said there "would be no point" because the "only choice in the election is a country led by Jeremy Corbyn or Theresa May". And they should not be used as bargaining chips.
