Corbyn vows to meet Merkel 'straight away' if he becomes PM

Corbyn vows to meet Merkel 'straight away' if he becomes PM

As the General Election campaign enters its final week, the Tory campaign has remained under considerable pressure ever since the dubious "Dementia Tax" was announced in its party manifesto a few weeks ago.

Mr Corbyn said Labour was "not looking to do deals with anybody" when asked if he would seek the support of the SNP. Poll numbers suggested that Labour would lose a large number of seats; one member of his own party predicted a "historic and catastrophic defeat". "Theresa May is using this election for Brexit, but actually on the doorstep, people aren't mentioning that", she said, handing out leaflets outside a shopping arcade, numerous buildings locked up. One prediction by pollster YouGov showed Mr Corbyn's Labour denying Theresa May a majority.

This unexpected scenario has prompted two big questions to hang over British politics for the past week or so.

The latest Ipsos MORI poll shows that women and middle-age voters are deserting May in the wake of the Prime Minister's U-turn on social care and the scrapping of free meals for infants. And secondly, could the polls just be wrong?

The Prime Minister replied: "No it's not, sir". This would be her first major test with national voters.

Mrs May insisted that the election should be about choosing the best team for the forthcoming negotiations on European Union withdrawal, saying: "I've called an election because of Brexit".

The Prime Minister rejected the suggestion her decision to go to the polls, having previously insisted there would not be an early election, was exclusively in the interests of the Conservative Party.

It was a toughest audience May has faced in a campaign where her appearances have been tightly controlled, and it got a rise out of the prime minister. I think it is a serious and realistic document that addresses the issues that many people in this country face and we've been fearless enough to put it out there with all the policies that are in it'.

Manchester Bomber Called Mom Before Attack
Abedi's father and two of his brothers have been taken into custody in connection with the investigation into the bombing. British police investigating the Manchester bombing made a new arrest Friday while continuing to search 12 properties.

There were problems with the substance, too.

That said, the number of people looking to make a quick buck from the Election doesn't compare with the EU Referendum, in the same period Oddschecker saw nearly twice as many visiting the politics odds grids to check the Remain or Leave odds, compared to this year's election.

Housing minister Gavin Barwell told the Daily Mail that Labour plans to reverse Conservative increases in the inheritance tax threshold would hit 1.2 million homes worth between £650,000 and £850,000 in what he termed a "punishing" tax hike.

Corbyn eyes Liberal Democrats leader, Tim Farron. The answer may lie in the public reaction to May's domestic policy plans, which would force some older voters to pay more for their social care, among other things.

There is a catch, however.

Abigail Eatock - a Ukip supporter - won loud applause as she told the PM: "You said you wouldn't call an election and you did".

He didn't. Instead, his loss led to an identity crisis and leadership contest that resulted in Corbyn, a member of the party's once-isolated left wing, ending up as an election candidate. Voters are not giving different answers to the pollsters, but the polling companies can not agree which voters will turn up on the day. But he now seems to have more of an audience.
