Jeremy Corbyn leaves door open for potential deal with SNP

Jeremy Corbyn leaves door open for potential deal with SNP

During a Q&A at a factory in Bath, May was asked by journalists if she was "frightened" about facing Corbyn in a head-to-head debate, to which she replied: "No. Jeremy Corbyn seems to be paying far more attention to how many appearances on television he's doing". Labour's vote share performance could be crucial to Corbyn's political future, with the left-winger refusing to say if he would quit if he loses the general election.

In campaign speech in Teesside, the Prime Minister said, freed from the "shackles" of Brussels, the United Kingdom could again become a "great global trading nation".

The PM's was represented by the home secretary Amber Rudd, who was attacked by all sides for her boss's no-show.

Other members of the panel are UKIP leader Paul Nuttall, SNP deputy leader Angus Robertson, Green co-leader Caroline Lucas and Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood.

Speaking at a Sky/Channel 4 event today he said: 'Come on prime minister, come and have a chat.

"I think debates where the politicians are squabbling amongst themselves doesn't do anything for the process of electioneering".




"This great national moment needs a great national effort in which we pull together with a unity of objective and - however we voted in the referendum last June - we come together with a determination to make a success of the years ahead".

When May called the snap June 8 election at the beginning of March, the Conservative Party led Labour by some 20 points in most opinion polls. Since then, the bombing that killed 22 people at a Manchester concert and some policy missteps by May's party have thrown the contest into uncertainty.

If the YouGov model turns out to be accurate, May would be well short of the 326 seats needed to form a government tasked with the complicated talks, due to start shortly after the election, on Britain's divorce from the European Union.

YouGov stressed that was just one possible result of its research, which is based on a mix of polling and demographic modeling. The figures, if replicated on 8 June, would see Corbyn beat Tony Blair's share of the vote in 2005, when more than 35% of the electorate backed Labour.

"That's what I'm doing, to make sure we get the best possible deal for Britain", she said.

YouGov allowed for big variations in the outcome of the election, ranging from as high as 345 seats for the Conservatives, 15 more than their current number, to as low as 274, the pollster's chief executive, Stephan Shakespeare, said.
