UK PM May's lead widens ahead of June 8 election - ORB poll

UK PM May's lead widens ahead of June 8 election - ORB poll

"Leanne Wood, leader of the Welsh party Plaid Cymru, said: "[May] won't turn up to these debates because her campaign of sound bites is falling apart". I too don't like Corbyn's sympathy for the IRA, his media incompetency, or even the people the surrounds himself with (and yes, I'm looking directly at you, Diane Abbott), but there are glimmers of red hope in the dark.

Sander's praise for Corbyn comes after a recent YouGov poll shows Labour trailing the Conservatives by just 3 points. Prime Minister Theresa May would extend her Conservative government's majority in Parliament - a move that would help her push through some of the trickier parts of the ongoing Brexit negotiations.

Polling companies went back to the drawing board after 2015, hoping to understand where they went wrong.

Drawing parallels between anti-establishment anger at both ends of the political spectrum in Britain and the U.S., the former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination also applauded Jeremy Corbyn's efforts to reshape the Labour party. He hasn't changed his views about anything since the 1970s - he would nationalize industry if he could, he has never been too keen on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, nuclear defense or the British army - and somehow that makes him seem honest.

There would be an "independent and separate relationship with the EU" after Brexit, he said.

Mrs May also came under fire on Friday for her decision not to sign a joint condemnation from France, Germany and Italy of United States president Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate achievement.

"A woman said to me today, "Sorry duck, I just can't take the risk", the Labour activist said.

Mr Corbyn was pressed by the audience over whether he would pursue a coalition deal with the SNP in the event of a hung parliament and the Labour leader insisted there would be "no deals".

When May stunned financial markets and political opponents by calling the snap election, her poll ratings indicated she could be on course to win a landslide majority on a par with the 1983 majority of 144 won by Margaret Thatcher.

"We are contesting all the constituencies".




On Labour's manifesto: "I am very excited about the opportunity to do things differently". She pitched hard for the voters who had backed Brexit, telling them that if they voted Leave, they needed to make sure they got it.

The end result saw David Cameron and the Conservatives finish top, ahead of Ed Miliband and the Labour party, who were widely tipped to challenge their rivals for No. 10 - only to be suffer a resounding defeat on election day.

To find out, we created a 2017 UK General Election league featuring Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, Tim Farron and the Liberal Democrats, Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish National Party, Caroline Lucas and the Green Party (with Jonathan Bartley as the assistant), Paul Nuttall and UKIP, and Leanne Wood and Plaid Cymru. The economic impact of Brexit hasn't yet registered - Britain hasn't left the European Union and won't do so for almost two years - but there is plenty of nervous activity, as companies and people argue about whether to stay or leave.

"It's worth it so any young person can go to university and not leave with debt, it's worth it to make sure school headteachers don't have to collect at the school gate to pay the teachers' salaries". The Tory-headed coalition and the majority government we have now have presided over some of the worst times for Britain's working people.

Adding a cap on the total people will pay, although one that the Tories are yet to define, doesn't appear to have fully turned around doubts, with 30% of respondents in the region now supporting a capped policy against 37.6% who are still against. Several members went on to press him further about whether he would ever approve the use of a nuclear weapon - and if not, why not.

"It would result in the destruction of the lives and communities and environment for millions of people".

Afterwards, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn faced the same audience and his own tough questions over his party's manifesto of spending promises - which one audience member called a "letter to Santa Claus" - and his record on defence.

The Labour leader suggested he would sign off on more ships for the Navy and extra surveillance aircraft for the RAF alongside pledges to boost funding and numbers in the police and armed services.

We have had enough.

Asked why voters should trust despite failing to give detailed costings for the plans, the Prime Minister said: "What our manifesto had done is be open with people about the great challenges that we believe this country faces. And I'm prepared to do that".
