British Prime Minister Theresa May's lead over the opposition Labour Party has narrowed to four percentage points ahead of the June 8 election, according to a YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) poll reported by the Sunday Times newspaper.

Mrs May was confronted by voters on issues of trust and cuts to welfare under the Conservatives, while Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was pressed over his refusal to say if he would use the UK's nuclear weapons, even in retaliation to an attack.

The 85-second montage of Corbyn's quotes has been circulating online for the last week and has been viewed 5.3m times, three times more than any other political campaign video.

She continued: "I could have stayed on doing that job for another couple of years and not called an election".

She told the audience taxpayers should not have to subsidise the social care of elderly people who have a "very significant value" property.

Asked if he would still like to be finance minister after the election, Hammond told the BBC: "Of course I would, that's a silly question".

The Prime Minister replied: "No it's not, sir".

More People Support Impeaching President Trump, Poll Finds
The second, more significant factor, is whether members of Congress would find it in their own interests to impeach the president. Democrats as a party must be willing to argue that Donald Trump is unfit to serve as President.


"I called a general election because I believe the British people have a right to vote and say who they want to see leading them through the Brexit process", Ms May said in an election edition of BBC1's Question Time.

Mr Corbyn looked uncomfortable as he was repeatedly asked if there were any circumstances in which, as Prime Minister, he would launch nuclear weapons such as the United Kingdom coming under attack.

"I'm afraid there is a lesson here about Jeremy Corbyn's psychology and his politics and his naivety, with which he approaches not just the logic of the nuclear deterrent but also the Brexit negotiations".

Mr Corbyn said Labour was "not looking to do deals with anybody" when asked if he would seek the support of the SNP.

If Theresa May's ambiguity over Brexit combines with the worst elements of her manifesto in a newly elected government, could a near-miss actually focus voters' minds and turn out to be the best result the left could have hoped for?

"I want to form a Labour government with a majority to carry out this wonderful programme which can give so much hope and opportunity for so many people".

If May failed to win an overall majority, she would be forced to strike a deal with another party to continue governing either as a coalition or a minority government.
