Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to face voters in Question Time special

10 May 2017

Jeremy Corbyn says he hopes the General Election will be a "day of reckoning" for those he says have been "asset stripping our industry, crashing our economy through their greed".

In another she describes a skull cap as a "jew cap" and says the Norwegian far right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik - who killed 77 people in an armed rampage in 2011 - should "go get slaughtered by a bunch of muslims and get forced to live in a synagogue".

Corbyn's planning ahead may be regarded by some as prescient: a poll by ICM for the Guardian yesterday but the Conservatives a record 22 points ahead of Labour.

A leadership challenge after the Brexit vote failed to unseat Mr Corbyn and for many Labour MPs it became a case of putting their heads down and getting on with what the situation as best they could.

Mr Corbyn told Sky's Political Editor Faisal Islam: "It's about fairness and taxation".

One of Mr Corbyn's aides said later that Britain will definitely leave the European Union if the party wins next month's election.

Jeremy Corbyn says he has no plans to stand down as Labour leader no matter how the party performs in the forthcoming general election.

It is not high on the Tory hit-list but the Conservatives could win there if they can convert the 7,600 people who voted for UKIP in 2015.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Corbyn said: "I was elected leader of this party and I'll stay leader of this party".

Theresa May will order the Conservatives to work "flat out" for victory, warning her supporters that opinion poll leads over Jeremy Corbyn's Labour could be wrong.

Corbyn, though, insisted he will be "carrying on" even if Labour suffers a heavy defeat in a month's time and said gloomy projections are not dampening his mood.

"I'm serious about winning the election", he said. "I was elected leader of this party, I'm proud to do it, and I'll carry on doing it".

When it comes to Brexit Labour finds itself in the middle - but elsewhere Mr Corbyn is clearly setting out his left-wing platform.

He said Labour wanted a "jobs first" Brexit which would safeguard the future of Britain's vital industries - with greater investment in training and skills to make Britons more competitive on the global stage. "We know they connect with these formats because they are a public moment to focus on and audience members from all across the country get the chance to ask politicians their own questions".

In another she said: 'I hate bbc one f***ing c***s black f***ing b**** I hate everyone #mayday'. "We have had a commitment previously as a Conservative Party to allow a free vote - and that's what it will allow, would allow, Parliament the opportunity to take a decision on this", she said.
