UK Labour leader comes out fighting

UK Labour leader comes out fighting

A camera-shy party leader is nothing new - David Cameron refused to debate then Labour leader Ed Miliband during the 2015 general election and also shunned arguing live with the main political parties during the European Union referendum.

Corbyn, who voted to leave the EU's predecessor in 1975 but supported "Remain" a year ago, has been criticised for muddling the party's position on Brexit and failing to effectively challenge May's push for a clean break with the bloc.

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas said Mr Corbyn was letting down Britain by refusing to back a second referendum. You can have Theresa May with a united party behind her fighting for every single Briton, making sure she secures the best possible deal or Jeremy Corbyn, a man who cannot even unite his own party, a man that doesn't even command the support of a simple majority of his party's MPs.

"But the fact is that if the polls are right, Theresa May will be PM on June 9 with a large majority", he wrote.

Palaniswami faction goes into huddle
Many AIADMK legislators stood behind Sasikala, who is in Bengaluru jail after being convicted in Disproportionate Assets case. Earlier in the day, Palanisamy had formed a 7-member committee to hold talks with rebel AIADMK faction leader O Panneerselvam.

"Much of the media and establishment are saying that this election is a foregone conclusion", he said. Of course we are not complacent about the situation in England. Because when we win it is the people, not the powerful, who win.

"They say I don't play by the rules -- their rules. Why should anyone believe a word they say over the next seven weeks?"

The political system was biased in favour of large companies, he said. But things can, and they will, change.

"Instead of the country's wealth being hidden in tax havens, we will put it in the hand of the people". Give me the mandate to lead Britain. Poverty and homelessness are a disaster for the individual and a loss to all of us.

Ramos-Vinolas beats Cilic to reach Monte Carlo semifinals
The 29-year-old was making his first ATP appearance since a second-round loss to Vasek Pospisil at Indian Wells on March 12. I maintained that kind of level for all the match , I think that was the key".

The Daily Express says an early election will bring Westminster in step with the electorate, says rescuing May from the indignity of "commanding a tiny majority among MPs despite having vast support among members of the public". Labour now has a real opportunity to show that it is the alternative government the country needs, with policies for real change, campaigning and winning for working people everywhere.

Jeremy Corbyn is using day two of the election campaign to claim Tory education policy means children are being crammed "like sardines" into "super-sized" school classes.

Asked whether he could represent the message, given his status as a member of the "Islington elite" - a question which prompted loud boos from some of the audience - Corbyn said he was very proud to represent the north London constituency.

A choice of stability and a clear vision for Brexit provided by Theresa May and the Conservative Party, or the other choice, a Labour Party lead by Jeremy Corbyn with no clear vision on Brexit and a party that can not unite behind him.

Jeremy Corbyn rules out backing second referendum on final Brexit deal
SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon argued that TV debates should go ahead without Mrs May. Polls suggest the party could lose dozens of their current 229 seats in Parliament.
