I'll overturn rigged system that favours rich, says Corbyn

Ruth Davidson, the Scottish Tory leader, said the SNP's strategy would be to claim that "living in the United Kingdom under a Conservative government will be hell on earth".

The political system was biased in favour of large companies, he said.

May is seeking to capitalise on her strong opinion poll ratings to increase her slim majority of 17 in the 650-seat House of Commons ahead of tough Brexit negotiations.

Parliament subsequently gave its approval on Wednesday afternoon, meaning the next parliamentary vote will now take place three years earlier than anticipated - and just a month after the Surrey County Council elections, on May 4.

SHOULDN'T a friend have suggested to Theresa May that adapting David Cameron's exhausted rhetoric about "a strong economy, strong defence and strong, stable leadership" might not be a good idea?

Here, where the local member of parliament is a Conservative but most people voted past year to stay in the European Union, May's party has to win back those who disagree with her plans for a decisive break with the EU.

"Our position hasn't changed and we have laid out our six tests for any Brexit deal", she said.

Guardiola: 'City far behind Champions League contenders'
Guardiola's men also have the FA Cup to look forward to, with a game against Arsenal scheduled in the semi-finals next weekend. Shane Long, 28, will be a threat to Manchester City while Nathan Ward , 23, is emerging as a real talent for his team.

And May didn't deny it.

And a lot of them don't.

"A genuinely progressive party would not refuse to introduce a 50p top rate of income tax on the richest", said Corbyn.

After making a late entrance due to delays on his train back from a visit to Birmingham, Mr Corbyn won brief but polite applause for his address to MPs.

Mrs May's extraordinary move came after national polls suggested the Conservatives had a 21-point advantage over Labour - the biggest lead for any party in government since 1983.

The Labour Leader was much quicker to address the speculation of a Labour-SNP deal at Westminster than his predecessor Ed Miliband. He has voiced support for former Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, urged a boycott of Israeli goods, and vehemently opposed the Iraq war within his own party. A duty for all of us here today, the duty of every Labour MP, a duty for our half a million members - including the 2,500 who have joined in the last 24 hours.

The Green Party is calling on Labour and the Liberal Democrats to discuss forming a "progressive alliance" in order to defeat the Conservatives in the upcoming general election.

New GBBO episodes will be 75-minutes long
Fans had been concerned that the broadcaster would cut some content, such as the baking history segments, to accommodate adverts. C4's version of the former BBC baking competition is taking shape, with bosses recently unveiling its new hosting line-up.

How bad could it be? If the polls are correct, the election would see the Tories winning 375 seats with a 100-seat majority.

He was defiant about Labour's chances of causing an upset in June's election.

"I have made no secret about my significant and irreconcilable differences with the current Labour leadership".

Tom Blenkinsop, the Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland MP criticised the leader last week after Labour lost a Middlesbrough council seat to the Tories on a by-election swing of eight per cent.

Party sources told the paper that other MPs may follow suit.

The letter continues: "We understand that, in the immediate run-up to an election, signalling a willingness to work with other parties might be hard but we hope you'll agree that the times we are living in require leaders to be courageous and visionary, to actively build a more positive politics".

While Labour may be demoralized and divided under Corbyn's leadership, it doesn't look like he is going anywhere fast.
