Bernie Sanders 'impressed' by United Kingdom candidate Jeremy Corbyn


The real question is whether the result is close enough for Corbyn to not only remain as leader, but to parlay the "loss" into the kind of success Sanders has enjoyed since his presidential run.

The poll showed said May's lead had fallen sharply from a lead of 12 percentage points in the previous Survation/Mail on Sunday poll published on May 21.

May, who won the top job in the political chaos following the shock 23 June Brexit vote, had hoped the election would strengthen her hand ahead of Brexit negotiations, and the party was expected to take advantage of the apparent weakness and disarray of its main rival.

"Realistically no one thinks Theresa May will not be Prime Minister, or that she will not have the majority she needs".

Dr Lelliott said it was only a few weeks ago that some key allies of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn were saying Labour would be lucky to get 200 seats.

"We are fighting this election to win and we are mounting a fantastic campaign in order to get that message across of how different our society and our politics could be", he said.

But Mr Corbyn insisted Labour had a "great team of very experienced people" who could be trusted to negotiate Brexit, insisting that the United Kingdom would "not necessarily be poorer" following withdrawal.

Mrs May maintained she was not now regretting calling election in the face of a narrowing lead over Labour in the polls.

The Prime Minister came under fire over public sector pay, social care and mental health, as one member of the BBC1 Question Time audience berated her for "a known track record of broken promises and backtracking". "I think I can trust Keir Starmer with negotiations more than some other people who are undertaking those negotiations", he said. The Labour leader said: "Look, bombing is wrong, all bombing is wrong, of course I condemn it".

If the latest polls are wrong - and they have previously underestimated Conservative support - and May wins a sizeable victory, she will axe current finance minister Philip Hammond and replace him with Interior Minister Amber Rudd, the Daily Telegraph reported. "I had the balls to call an election".

"You are refusing to take part in debates, refusing to answer people's questions, refusing to talk to Jeremy Corbyn".
