Prime Minister Corbyn? UK polls narrowing dangerously for conservatives

It is an understandable impulse: A big win would not only give her a larger majority in Parliament, but it also potentially would give her another five years until the next election - during which time she could focus on the complicated business of leaving the EU.

"I've said that I think no deal would be better than a bad deal".

"If they do, I am confident that we can fulfill the promise of Brexit together and build a Britain that is stronger, fairer and even more prosperous than it is today", May said.

"But we have to be prepared to stand up for Britain". We demand a fairer society, #ForTheMany, not the few.

With less than a week to go before the United Kingdom general election, opinion polls continued to show Labour gaining ground and the Conservative party's share of the vote shrinking.

But it was who Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn suffered the most uncomfortable moments of the event as he struggled to answer questions over his opposition to nuclear weapons.

"The alternative is that all those young Corbynistas will prove a mirage and that some polls still contain too numerous sort of young people who vote, with the end result being that the Conservatives win a large or landslide majority", he said. She told voters that it was her party's "firm intention to reduce taxes for ordinary working families". "We already know your tax will go up if you vote Labour on Thursday", he said.

The numbers have gotten so troubling that there are murmurs within the Conservative Party that May could be under serious pressure if Labour manages to exceed expectations.

Smith (scoreless) were invisible again and no one on the bench stepped up leaving King James helpless for much of the night. Curry used every single move that he has in his bag of tricks to get James off balance and finish at the rim.

It was clearly meant to win a large majority by exploiting Labour's weak position, and thus steamroll opposition to her vision of Brexit. "I had the balls to call an election".

He is committed to heeding the results of Britain's European Union membership referendum a year ago in which 52% voted Leave against 48% in favour of Remain. Jeremy Corbyn's unexpected rise to leadership in the fall of 2015, months after another romp by former Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives, represented a sharp left turn for the party, which under Tony Blair and his successors had mostly run parallel with the (Bill) Clinton-era Democrats.

Mrs May faced hostile questions over her plans for elderly care, dubbed the dementia tax, and her failure to put a figure on the cap on social care costs she promised after consternation in Conservative ranks over the policy as it was set out in the manifesto.

If the latest polls are wrong - and they have previously underestimated Conservative support - and May wins a sizeable victory, she will axe current finance minister Philip Hammond and replace him with Interior Minister Amber Rudd, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Mr Corbyn highlighted Labour plans to pump £250 billion into industry through a new National Investment Bank and create a network of Regional Development Banks as well as a National Transformation Fund.

May has made much of Brexit in the election campaign, pitching herself as the only leader capable of delivering a successful divorce.

Mrs May told the audience her presence at the BBC Question Time Special, broadcast from York University, showed she was not avoiding debates.
