Tory lead slashed to record low of three points

Earlier today, Labour leader Corbyn announced that he would take part in this evening's BBC 1 debate.

There were people with European Union remain flags draped around their shoulders, others were chanting "8th June, end of May" and singing "Why are we waiting?"

Ms Lucas slammed the Tory cabinet minister, asking her how she can sleep at night knowing the level of arms the United Kingdom sells to Saudi Arabia amidst a brutal bombing campaign in neighbouring Yemen.

Corbyn's drive to align Labour more closely with its socialist roots and eschew the pro-business centrist platform championed by three-time election victor Blair has split the party.

"To those who are anxious about what the president might or might not be about to do, and I stress that we are not there yet, I just want to make one point, which is that it is the state governments, at state level, that so numerous gains have been made in the last few years in reducing CO2", he said.

"Labour is ready: ready to deliver a deal that gives British businesses and society a chance to thrive", Corbyn said on Thursday at an election rally in Pitsea, east of London.

Jeremy Corbyn's decision to attend the BBC live TV debate paid off.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May could be looking at a smaller majority than what has been anticipated when the 2017 general election happens next week.

A campaign source said momentum behind Corbyn had been building ever since election broadcasting regulations, which ensure party leaders get airtime, came into force a month ago.

"If you don't think Jeremy Corbyn is fit to be Prime Minister, if you don't think he's up to negotiating Brexit, if you oppose a second referendum - vote for Theresa May and her Conservative team".

Labour has seen an increase in support in the polls over the course of the election campaign, after starting around 20 points behind the Conservatives.

Angus Robertson, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in the House of Commons, hit out at May for calling a snap election in the first place.

The lead started to contract sharply after she set out plans on May 18 to make some elderly people pay a greater share of their care costs, a proposal dubbed the "dementia tax" by opponents.

"Debates where the politicians are squabbling among themselves doesn't do anything for the process of electioneering". The area is also one of the most pro-Brexit in the country.

Corbyn, who was accused by Rudd of relying on a "magic money tree" to fund his party's policies, had toned down his rhetoric for the occasion, says the New Stateman.

"You've seen the coalition of chaos in action but in the quiet of the polling booth you have a clear choice - a vote for anyone other than Theresa May is a vote for Corbyn", she said. "We can achieve things together and I'm very excited by it".

Mr Farron said: "Look, I know we don't all agree on Brexit but she is off to negotiate a deal for you, for me, for all of us".

Nuttall said radical Islam was "a cancer that needed to be cut out" to prevent other attacks.
