UK PM May says no delaying June 19 start to Brexit talks

Jeremy Corbyn's Surprising Gains

Jeremy Corbyn has argued why Theresa May should join tonight's TV election debate in an interview with NME.

"I will be taking part in tonight's debate because I believe we must give people the chance to hear and engage with the leaders of the main parties before they vote", he announced.

Now he was promising to tear up the Government's Brexit white paper and ditch its Great Repeal Bill, setting back the process of negotiation further, she added.

Answering questions on the interview after launching Labour's race and faith manifesto in Watford, Mr Corbyn said: "I didn't have the exact figure in front of me, so I was unable to answer that question, for which obviously I apologise".

Aides confirmed Mr Corbyn would be taking part in the seven-way TV broadcast.

The prime minister was campaigning in Wolverhampton today, and returned to the theme of Brexit, portraying her Labour rival as unable to conduct talks on leaving the European Union, saying Jeremy Corbyn would find himself "alone and naked in the negotiating chamber".

'And then the prime minister is hiding away in a room upstairs, to come down and do exactly the same.

She continued: "You're holding your manifesto, you're flicking through it, you've got an ipad there, you've had a phone call while we're in here and you don't know how much it's going to cost". "Come and have a debate, I can be ever so polite".

Mr Corbyn has cancelled planned appearances at stump events in Swindon and Stroud, and a rally in Bristol.

Labour has said it will invest £37bn in the NHS and £8bn in social care by the end of the next parliament if it wins the election.

May will also call Europe's stance on the Brexit "aggressive" on Tuesday, according to a pre-released copy of her speech.

Martin responded: "I appreciate you are protecting the budgets, but we still need the staff to carry out the role of the police officer of keeping the public safe".

"She was actually getting through to him but that one stumbling block over the dementia tax is (creating) a hesitancy", he said.

Alongside Labour leader Mr Corbyn and Ms Rudd on the stage in Cambridge were Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, Ukip's Paul Nuttall, Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas, Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru and Scottish National Party depute leader Angus Robertson. "Now will Theresa May crawl out from where's she's hiding to debate?"

'Failing to show up to tonight's debate would show extreme cowardice from a prime minister resolutely avoiding proper scrutiny.

The programme, which was not a head to head as May has refused to debate Corbyn, also saw the Labour leader face questions from the audience on his association with members of the IRA in the 1980s, and his own leadership abilities.

"If we get Brexit right, I'm convinced that the future will be brighter", the prime minister told party activists at a construction equipment maker on the outskirts of the market town of Guisborough.
