From landslide to upset defeat - scenarios for May's United Kingdom election

From landslide to upset defeat - scenarios for May's United Kingdom election

Latest polls suggest a five point advantage for her party over Labour led by Jeremy Corbyn, who was also interviewed separately during the same program.

Mr Jarvis, a decorated para who saw action in Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan, also vowed that Labour would be tough on terrorism if the party won the election in the June 8 poll.

He then suggested that her absence "would be another sign of her weakness" in the follow-up post: "The Tories have treated the public with contempt".

"I have never been afraid of a debate in my life".

There were 239,700 tweets sent about Mr Corbyn - compared with 107,800 for the Prime Minister - over the 90-minute period, during which the pair were questioned by a studio audience and Jeremy Paxman.

The snap election pushes back the date of the next planned national election from 2020 - just after Britain is due to have quit the European Union - to 2022, giving May more time to put the exit deal in place and potentially reducing political risk over how the deal is implemented.

Mr Corbyn's last-minute decision to take part in the BBC debate in Cambridge was created to wrong-foot Ms May by portraying her as running scared of a confrontation with him.

To raucous laughter from supporters, she added: "Now, I know that's an image that doesn't bear thinking about, but actually this is very serious". I am prepared. I am ready to go.

The 'Animaniacs' May Be Getting a Comeback Series
Bradford Hornsby is an editor, music writer, web producer, and pop culture blogger for CBS stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since then, Warner Bros . has reportedly been in talks with Amblin Television about a potential addition to the series.

The Prime Minister insisted that she was determined to take on hard issues.

Amber Rudd will step up to the plate to bat for the Tories and will square off against a representative from Labour, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron, Ukip's Paul Nuttall, the SNP's Angus Robertson, Green co-leader Caroline Lucas and Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood.

By the time Jeremy Corbyn relaxed into The One Show sofa last night he had swung through the highs and lows of nearly a whole election campaign in just 24 hours.

Of course, many of Corbyn's hobbies - from Arsenal FC to manholes and allotments - are well-known to Labour activists but, to those disinterested voters who may not have engaged with him much beyond taking in those lurid tabloid headlines, it was insight into a man who came across as calm, genial, slightly old-fashioned and quintessentially English.

But a Conservative Party spokesman said: "There are no changes to the Prime Minister's plans".

The bank said the near- to medium-term reaction would likely be a fall in sterling to $1.20, but with the potential for it to rise as high as $1.50 if the political situation evolved in a way that forced May to soften her demands on Brexit. "I'll give you the figure in a moment".

The programme was the most watched show on TV on Monday night with an average share of 38% while the results announcement at 9.30pm was viewed by 6.5m people.

The insights were not exactly stellar but there were a few revelations as well as an enjoyable journey through the childhood of the man aiming to be prime minister at the end of next week.
