UK PM May's Conservatives lead Labour by 13 points: Opinion poll

UK PM May's Conservatives lead Labour by 13 points: Opinion poll

He did concede that immigration "will probably be lower" after Brexit.

"I want us to have a society that works and I can not get into numbers games because I don't think it works", he added.

In the interview he also defended his associations with IRA linked rallies in the 1980s, saying: "I wanted to bring about peace in Northern Ireland".

Mr Corbyn also reiterated his party's commitment to ensuring the pension triple lock, ending the freeze on working age benefits, free school meals, improving public housing and ending tuition fees.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the Labour leader could not be trusted to lead the Brexit talks if he gained power in the General Election on June 8, warning European Union negotiators would "have him for breakfast".

"Not satisfied with plunging our social care system into crisis, Theresa May's nasty party has promised more attacks on older people: scrapping the triple-lock on state pensions, removing the winter fuel allowance and asset stripping the ill by forcing those who need social care to pay for it with their homes", Corbyn said.

She also set out plans to transfer a greater share of the cost of caring for elderly people from taxpayers to those who can afford to pay for their own care, including property owners who are the basis of support for her party, and to restrict a now universal winter fuel payment for older people.

Mrs May has insisted the plans are meant to ensure fairness across generations and ensure the long-term sustainability of the social care system.

The pro-European Liberal Democrats have fallen from around 11 percent to around eight percent.




Chris Hopkins, from Survation, said some policies in the Conservative manifesto were very well supported but others faced "considerable opposition".

Mr Corbyn surprised music fans by appearing on stage during a music festival in the Wirral before headliners The Libertines set on Saturday.

"The whole discussion and the whole debate is unravelling from the Tory point of view".

Labour have continued to cut the Tories' lead in the polls after the publication of the party manifestos, as party leader Jeremy Corbyn claimed his message was "getting through" to voters.

"The Conservatives are on 46% (down 1 point from last week), while Labour are on 33% (up 1 point)", the poll by the Opinium Research LLP company said.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has warned Britons against voting for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the June 8 general election, saying the prospect of his leadership "should scare us all".

Voters will take to the polls in Britain on the 8th of June.

The poll is the first to be released since both parties released their manifestos this week.

Keir Starmer, who's [7.2] to succeed Corbyn, disagrees that the 2015 result is any yardstick for success. We have to get Brexit right.
