May, Corbyn clash over Brexit plans with UK vote 1 week away

Corbyn rocks up on cover of NME

Prime Minister Theresa May has repeatedly claimed that a vote for Mr Corbyn in next week's General Election would result in a "coalition of chaos" with Labour propped up by MPs from parties like the Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party or Greens.

Similar to the June referendum, optimistic attitudes toward Brexit are most frequently expressed by people who are 50 or older, have a secondary education or less, and are partial to political parties on the right, including the Conservative (Tory) Party and the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).

The Economist delivered an even more critical assessment of Labor under veteran leftist Jeremy Corbyn, saying he "poses as a radical but is the most conservative - and the most unsafe - of the lot".

Speaking in the North-east and referring to Mr Corbyn, Ms May said: "What we know in this election is that the only other person that can be Prime Minister in seven days' time is simply not up to the job".

Mrs May spent part of yesterday campaigning in West Yorkshire, the location of her party's manifesto launch a fortnight ago, while the Opposition leader plans to spend the whole day in this region.

A live video of Jeremy Corbyn's speech on security received the most positive reactions on Labour's Facebook page but, with nearly 12,000 "likes" or "loves", scored less highly than the Conservative video attacking him. The Economist believes that Britain needs a radical, free-market centre party and that, for all their faults, the closest available choice is the Liberal Democrats.

Britons will vote in a general election on Thursday June 8.

Canada expanded by 0.9 per cent in the first three months of the year - the last of the G7 countries to report growth figures - putting Britain at the bottom of the group's table.

The brighter future we want for our country will not just happen, Mrs May will warn on a visit to the North East on Thursday.

"That would mean slapping tariffs on the goods we export - an extra 10% on cars - with the risk that key manufacturers would leave for the European mainland, taking skilled jobs with them".

"A coalition which represents all parties might be best placed to secure a deal with the European Union", said Peter Dixon at Commerzbank.

In the light of the Manchester terrorist attack, Theresa May politicised the event by telling reporters at the G7 meeting that Jeremy Corbyn stated, "the terror attacks in Britain are our own fault".

"In short, we are now set up for a tighter race than might have been expected at the beginning of the election campaign", they said.

"It is also unsafe, because it is calculated to distract attention from the shark-infested waters which we are now entering, and the fact that Theresa May herself has steered us towards them". That's what we are fighting to do. "People have complained about him being a bit scruffy so he's smartened up a bit, but he's never going to be a media person, he's never going to conform to what the media wants him to be - which is another thing I really like him for". That is a scandal and we will bring it to an end'.
