Conservatives continue to lead Labour in latest opinion polls

Galeno Paniagua | 04 Junio, 2017, 13:40

The Ipsos MORI poll put the Conservatives on 45%, down four points from a comparable survey on 18 May, with Labour up 6 points to 40 percent. Following the referendum result that saw a majority of the younger section of the population vote to remain, the 2017 General Election appears to have galvanised the youth movement more than any other vote in recent history.

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".

Theresa May's once-formidable lead has been eroded though her Conservative Party could still be on course to win a majority of seats in parliament.

Failure to win the June 8 election with a large majority would weaken May just as formal Brexit talks are due to begin while the loss of her majority in Parliament would pitch British politics into turmoil. At the start of the campaign May's advantage was 49/14.

"No more can Britain try to sustain its economy on the back of growth in the financial sector in one corner of England", Mr Corbyn said.

In a hectic campaign which was suspended after a suicide bombing last week, pollsters, who universally got it wrong before the last vote in 2015, have offered a vast range for the result of the election: From May losing her majority to a landslide victory for her Conservatives of more than 100 seats.

"What people will know when they go to vote on Thursday is that it is the Conservative Party that always has been and is and always will be a low-tax party", she said.

Corbyn, a 68-year-old peace campaigner, has been pulling in big crowds at rallies across the country despite warnings from opponents in his own party that he is leading Labour to its worst defeat ever. On Wednesday she sent a senior minister to a TV discussion with six other party leaders.

The Conservative leader was accused of "broken promises" for calling an early election for June 8 after she had repeatedly said she would not, and for a U-turn on a key manifesto pledge on elderly social care.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said while May was no longer certain of increasing her parliamentary majority, she was sceptical about suggestions the Conservatives would lose their current slim majority. It is unlikely she would agree to stopping the Brexit divorce.

Cast into the political wilderness by Donald Trump's election and a run of of congressional cycles dominated by Republicans, US Democrats are locked in a contentious search for a defining message - and revamped slate of policies - to lead them back to power.

May repeated her mantra that "the only poll that matters is the one that takes place on polling day". "We will bear down on taxation and we have absolutely no plans to raise income tax", he said.

May praised her performance when she stood in for the prime minister at a televised election debate on Wednesday featuring all Britain's main party leaders after May herself declined to attend.
