Prepared to leave European Union without a Brexit deal, says Theresa May

"I am prepared. I am ready to go".

Brexit has been atop the list of main issues heading into this election, and both candidates' capabilities of getting the right deal for Britain in its European Union negotiations was raised.

Interviewer Emma Barnett eventually told him that the cost, given by his shadow education secretary Angela Rayner, was £4.8bn a year, to which Mr Corbyn said it "sounds correct".

In addition, 650,000 children will be "crammed" into primary school classes larger than 30 pupils, and families will be almost £450 worse off per child as a result of Tory plans to scrap free school meals for 1.7 million children.

Labour say they would extend the entitlement to all parents, not just those in work, and end means testing for two-year-olds by the end of the parliament.

The Sky News TV event was staged as consecutive interviews after Mrs May said she wouldn't go head-to-head with her opponent.

Mr Corbyn's attempt, following last week's atrocity, to draw a link between British involvement in military interventions overseas and terrorism at home led to Tory accusations that he was making excuses for extremists. Meanwhile, Tory cuts have also led to the loss of 1,240 Sure Start centres. "All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election which will take place on 8th June", she said in earlier this month.

Betfair spokeswoman Katie Baylis said: "There's no doubt Labour are closing the gap in the polls, which is a sentiment that's also being reflected in the odds and it seems Corbyn gave his Labour party a slight advantage after last night's "debate" with the party's odds shortening into 11/1 from 13/1 yesterday on the Most Seats market".

The Labour leader appeared surprised when asked why he was not proposing to abolish the British monarchy, saying: "It's not on anybody's agenda, it's certainly not on my agenda".

"It is a hypothetical question", he said. We will cut class sizes, take a million people off the NHS waiting list and ensure people get the care they deserve. The CCHQ has released excerpts of the Brexit speech. "They are adopting an aggressive negotiating position, which can only be met by strong leadership on behalf of Britain", she will say.

"It was a quiet revolution driven by all those who felt let down and left behind for too long". "The blame is with the terrorists but we must be honest about the causes", he says.

"It isn't a question of what it's worth paying to get out; it's a question of what is going to be the right deal for us in leaving the European Union which will stop us from having to pay huge sums of money into the European Union every year", she said.

There are several possible reasons for this: Labour's popular manifesto policies and Theresa May's controversial social care plans and subsequent U-turn nearly certainly contributed strongly to a shift in public perceptions.

Corbyn was questioned about his views on drone strikes, plans to raise taxes for the wealthy and corporations as well as past campaigning in Northern Ireland.

"This country is badly divided between the richest and the poorest", the Labour leader replied.

The Labour leader was challenged seven times on how much money would be needed to extend the provision of 30 hours of free childcare a week to all two to four-year-olds.

The Labour leader will seek to build on encouraging signs in the polls as he seeks to steer the campaign away from Brexit and on to public services.

"The questions for this campaign haven't changed since I called it six weeks ago".
