  • Jeremy Corbyn Compares Labour Comeback to Istanbul

His acolytes will inevitably mistake centrist voters' disillusionment in the Conservative Party for a vindication of their long-held beliefs, but there is no indication Middle England seeks a return to the 1970s. Quite often in this campaign she has appeared defensive, hesitant and wooden.

Then again, if May had suffered a bruising encounter at nearly 10 p.m. on a Friday night, Tory spinners would tell everyone to pipe down because no-one in the real world cares about a TV question and answer session.

In her very first question she was confronted by a charge that she had "a known track record of broken promises and backtracking" as both Home Secretary and Prime Minister. Then it might have actually won this election.

"I think I can trust Keir Starmer with negotiations more than some other people who are undertaking those negotiations", he said. Oh no they weren't, chipped in another audience member.

The Prime Minister replied: "No it's not, sir".

Labour strategists are well aware of this, and are desperately seeking to focus the campaign away from Brexit and back to the state of Britain's public services, emphasising the future impact of another five years of spending cuts. This went down well with the audience.

Some 246,487 young people registered to vote on May 22, the last day to sign up before the election cut-off. It means that the Tories previously were on 49 per cent of the vote.

"The dementia tax is itself unfair but what's made matters even worse is the way Theresa May announced a cap and then failed to say how much it would be".

Soon after, Musk attended a brief with other tech executives to discuss their opposition to the president's immigration ban. Trump's decision showed that the administration cares about "our economy and jobs only", Hescox added.

There were problems with the substance, too. "It also seems as if he could increase Labour support at Westminster". The biggest movement in the polls has been among the young, whose support for Labour has soared.

British prime minister May could lose majority in June 8 election
The Labour party , if it was to attain a coalition with the Liberal Democrats party, would likely aim for a "softer" Brexit. On Thursday, YouGov said their model showed the Conservatives were 9 seats short of a majority.

Nonetheless, it could hurt Labour in some of the northern, working-class seats where Brexit is the defining factor of the election, given that Sturgeon and plausibly be presented as a major drag on any Labour administration's commitment to upholding the referendum result and taking us out of the EU.

She then contradicted the impression of her as a robotic politician who repeats sound bites and fails to answer questions. "Strong and stable"? The No. 2 pop song in the country, with 1.7 million YouTube views as of Friday, is "Liar Liar", an anti-May tune that has caught on precisely because her attempt to make the Conservative Party seem less conservative doesn't convince everyone.

Depending on which polls you read, the outcome next week could be anything "from Theresa May winning a healthy majority to her being hounded out by Jeremy Corbyn". So that was a question wasted. "Better than her anyway", she said. They suggest that she's one of the most successful Conservative leaders in living memory. And towards the end, it seemed she didn't know that £4m of the foreign aid budget in 2015 went to North Korea.

Why should I vote Tory?

For the first time in weeks, "Monsieur Zen" looked rattled. If you're going to be negotiating with the European Union, you've got to be prepared to say to these blighters "We're not going to do a deal with you".

Corbyn claims he is no pacifist, but he has opposed every war Britain has fought in since he was elected to Parliament, including the Falklands War.

"They're strong on the economy and tax breaks, and you can see that when they've been in power, for example, they've increased the ISA allowance". He was besieged by Tory questioners on Trident and the IRA and, whereas in previous encounters he has fended them off with plausible evasions, this time he seemed disrupted and nervous.

"People have complained about him being a bit scruffy so he's smartened up a bit, but he's never going to be a media person, he's never going to conform to what the media wants him to be - which is another thing I really like him for".
