Tories lead in latest United Kingdom opinion poll

20 April 2017, 04:59 | Myron Mathis

British Prime Minister Theresa May speaks during Prime Ministers questions in the House of Commons in London.

Mr Corbyn said that a Labour government would conduct "responsible" Brexit negotiations to ensure future trading relations with the remaining EU. "They're going to suffer very badly, and there's no way of polishing it up and seeing a bright side".

The Prime Minister said, if she had not performed a U-turn on calling an early vote, the "crucial part" of the Brexit talks would have occurred in the build-up to a general election, which European Union negotiators could have exploited as a "weakness".

Nearly exactly 20 years since Tony Blair led Labor to the first of three consecutive election victories, the party is languishing in the polls ahead of the June 8 vote.

The words of Chris Mullin, a former Labour minister writing after the referendum result previous year, look increasingly prophetic. Fielding said. "Labour will look like a rabble, and that will be an image that will be imprinted on many voters for a number of elections to come".

Jeremy Corbyn will vow he "won't play by the rules" if Labour wins power in June's General Election. "That is what our plans for Brexit and our plan for Britain will deliver, and that is what the Conservative Party will be offering at this election".

"The only way is up" for the party, she wrote. Johnson has been a vocal critic of Corbyn, saying the Labour leader was "not up to the job".

Highest vote share for any Tory government since 1991.

Despite polls giving Tories double-digit leads over Labour with just seven weeks to go, Mr Corbyn will say his party can "change the direction of this election" by "putting the interests of the majority first". But the more seats they win the greater the risk that there will be no overall majority for any party and that Mr Corbyn could be part of a coalition.

Railing against wealthy elites and big business, the left-wing leader said he would not play by the rules "set by failed political and corporate elites" and would defy expectations. "They're quite right I don't", he said in extracts of his speech released beforehand. Labour, with 1,600 votes, lost their deposit. At the same time, he's alienated a chunk of his parliamentary group with poor organisation and radical left views and was accused of a lackluster contribution to keeping Britain in the EU. Labour could see its position erode further on June 8 - with one academic musing the party could lose all but 130 lawmakers.

It was the first full poll taken since May stunned the nation by calling a snap election for June 8.

Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Democratic Unionist Party joined the Conservatives to deliver 522 votes in favour of an early election, with just 13 against. No margin of error was given.

Pat Glass, Labour's MP in North West Durham, previously said she would step down in 2020.

A general email sent out by the party headquarters said that "due to the exceptional snap General Election circumstances" local party members would not be able to select all their candidates. Now that's been brought forward by three years.

"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", the pair said in an open letter to the Labour and Lib Dem leaders.

"The SNP remains dominant in Scotland and is likely to retain most of its 56 seats".

Mr Corbyn will denounce those benefiting from the current system as "wealth extractors" and say it is only to be expected that they will oppose him.

In a sign of the discontent within the Labour ranks, Tom Blenkinsop immediately said he would not stand for re-election.

"Labour MPs that now have majorities in the single thousands may be looking over their shoulders", McLeod said. The party currently has 229 and is defending one seat in a special election on May 4 that now looks redundant. "It is because of these differences that I feel I can not, in good faith, stand as the Labour candidate for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland", Blenkinsop said, according to The Daily Telegraph. "I can't see any reason why it won't happen again".
