Labour is getting crushed in the opinion polls

When asked afterwards to clarify the Labour leadership's position, shadow chancellor John McDonnell refused to answer the question 10 times.

The former interior minister, who became prime minister without an election when her predecessor David Cameron quit after last year's referendum vote for Brexit, enjoys a runaway lead over the main opposition Labour Party in opinion polls.

Mr Corbyn won brief but polite applause after addressing MPs at an evening meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party, after arriving late due to being delayed on a train back from a visit to Birmingham.

But today Jeremy Corbyn tried to put his party's woes to one side as he launched Labour's campaign with his first speech of the election.

She also claimed Labour, the Liberal Democrats and SNP were intent on "frustrating the Brexit process".

He said that the Party is facing its toughest challenge since the 1930s and polls show that Mr Corbyn has just 15 per cent support from the electorate. "Every weekend I've spoken to people who regret voting for the Conservatives", Kelly-Marie Blundell, the Liberal Democrat, or Lib Dem, candidate for Lewes told Reuters.

Meanwhile, a prominent backbench critic of the leader announced that he wanted to stand for re-election as a Labour MP but would not endorse Mr Corbyn for Prime Minister.

According to the Times, senior Labour members are said to be pushing leader Jeremy Corbyn to make a promise to give voters the chance to reject a Brexit deal negotiated by a future government.

Earlier, Ms May suggested she won't use the general election to give voters more detail about the kind of Brexit she wants, instead asking them to trust her to deliver.
