British PM, rival face angry voters as election nears

Parliamentary pact could put Labour in power but Corbyn rules out ‘tutti frutti coalition

"Mayism" was launched with posters calling on voters to support "May's Team" instead of the Conservative Party; other tactics included frequent repetition of the phrases "strong and stable", "ordinary people" and - to describe her opponents - "coalition of chaos".

The pair will meet later on for a BBC Question Time special where they will be grilled - separately - by voters.

'Jeremy Corbyn. made clear he would not use our Trident nuclear deterrent even if the United Kingdom was coming under nuclear attack.

Mr Corbyn, a long-standing advocate of nuclear disarmament, struggled and was accused of "dodging the question" by veteran host David Dimbleby as he refused to say what he would do if Britain was threatened with a nuclear strike.

Another gentlemen in the audience said: "Would you use it as second use or would you allow North Korea or some idiot in Iran to bomb us and say "ooh, we better start talking", you'll be too late!"

Mr Corbyn highlighted Labour plans to pump £250 billion into industry through a new National Investment Bank and create a network of Regional Development Banks as well as a National Transformation Fund.

On April 18, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold an early parliamentary election on June 8 to overcome divisions in the parliament and succeed in negotiations with the European Union on Brexit. "We need to get it right". "You have to think this thing through", Mr Corbyn said.

One woman becoming emotional as she described emerging from a fitness for work test in tears after being asked about her suicide attempts to which the PM said: "I'm not going to make any excuses for the experience you've had".

Her comments were echoed by her finance minister, Philip Hammond, though May has stoked speculation about Hammond's future by refusing to say whether she will reappoint him if she wins the election.

However, Theresa May's personal approval rating has become negative for the first time since she became prime minister in July 2016, a fresh ComRes poll showed on Saturday. "I think he is doing quite well".

And she denied she had called the election out of political calculation.

She warned of the risk of voters backing Labour and allowing Mr Corbyn to form a minority government with the support of the SNP.

On the BBC1 programme, she hit out at Corbyn with her election mantra that he could only get into Downing Street "propped up by the Lib Dems and the Scottish Nationalists".

"I'm afraid there is a lesson here about Jeremy Corbyn's psychology and his politics and his naivety, with which he approaches not just the logic of the nuclear deterrent but also the Brexit negotiations". "We have a very big challenge ahead of us and I believe I can play a part in that, as all of my colleagues can".

The Prime Minister promised further investment and a new Mental Health Act to end workplace discrimination.

"There isn't a magic money tree that we can shake that suddenly provides for everything that people want", she said.

"I really respect her and I respect the fact that she knows exactly how hard the job is that she's about to do".

Next up to face the audience was Mr Corbyn who was swiftly challenged over his views on Trident, his views on the IRA and whether the Labour manifesto was "a realistic wish list" or "just a letter to Santa Claus?"
