British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives have slightly extended their large lead over the opposition Labour Party as the state-run health service takes over from Brexit as the nation's top concern, a poll said on Monday.

The Conservatives' share of voters fell a point to 48 percent, while Labour's increased a point to 28 percent, according to the poll commissioned by the Guardian newspaper.

UKIP has accused Theresa May of stealing its policies, and vowed to remain a political force even if it fails to win any seats in the General Election.

Survation interviewed 1,016 GB adults over the phone between May 12 and 13 while ICM interviewed 2,030 adults online from May 12 to May 14.

O'Flynn ruled out Ukip merging with the Conservative party and insisted the decision to stand down candidates running against pro-Brexit Tories was "putting country before party" rather than strengthening May's majority.

The meeting preceded the launch of an unrelated website called Grime 4 Corbyn, which is encouraging young people to vote for "our guy Jez" in the election on June 8.

Polls regularly indicate that younger demographics in the United Kingdom are more likely to vote left of center.

Meanwhile, Mrs May last night unveiled plans for tackling the "injustice" of black and Asian workers earning less on average than their white counterparts. No one in my family, no friends, no one at all.

Mr Corbyn said Labour would deliver an additional £7.4 billion a year for the NHS over the course of the next five-year parliament, including a total of £10 billion in capital funding to modernise buildings and IT systems.

At the start of a week which will see the main parties publish their manifestos, the Prime Minister will promise to extend protections for workers in the so-called "gig economy", such as drivers for Uber and internet delivery firms.
