Corbyn: It's a shame PM has not joined in head-to-head debate

British PM, rival face angry voters as election nears

Afterwards, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn faced the same audience and his own tough questions over his party's manifesto of spending promises - which one audience member called a "letter to Santa Claus" - and his record on defence.

The poll showed said May's lead had fallen sharply from a lead of 12 percentage points in the previous Survation/Mail on Sunday poll published on May 21.

Some of the reason for the focus on other matters is that we have not learnt anything new about the way Theresa May is planning to approach Brexit.

She said: "It would have been the easiest thing in the world for me having become the Prime MInister after the referendum when David Cameron resigned to say the next election is not until 2020".

Under pressure after refusing to turn up for a TV debate earlier in the week, May rejected an accusation that she did a U-turn by calling a snap general election, the daily reported.

The Prime Minister said it was important to consult with organisations involved in elderly care to make sure it is set at the "right level".

Mr Corbyn was challenged about his approach to Brexit and said the United Kingdom would not "necessarily" be poorer as a result of leaving the European Union.

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

Page said that Labour's share of the vote included many younger voters who had not voted before.

The leaders will not go head-to-head at any point.

The Conservatives want it to be the central issue but the problem for them is that people have been talking about issues like social care and austerity, which appear to have played into the other parties' hands, particularly Labour.

THERESA May is on course to return to Downing Street with a 60-seat majority, a poll reveals today.

New analysis by polling expert Lord Ashcroft suggested that the likeliest outcome from the June 8 election will be a Conservative majority of 60 - substantially reduced on a similar estimate last week, but still a comfortable victory for Mrs May.

May had said she was too busy "thinking about Brexit negotiations" and "meeting voters" to take part in the debate.

Theresa May remains voters' preferred choice for prime minister although her personal rating is down six points on 50%. "I had the balls to call an election".
