Stand-up Ariane Sherine ties the knot with the Labour leader in a music video for her Love Song for Jeremy Corbyn.

However, other pollsters, while agreeing that Labour is eating into the Tory lead, still put Mrs May's party as much as 10-12 points clear - enough for a comfortable majority in the Commons. After earlier saying she would not do so, May then called a snap national election to try to cement her position. Corbyn asked. "Have you seen people sleeping around our stations?"

With just seven days until the election the prime minister is stepping up and breathing new life into her campaign.

Under pressure following a lacklustre campaign, her decision to miss Wednesday's seven-way debate between United Kingdom party leaders after Mr Corbyn's last minute attendance and the narrowing of the opinion polls, the Tory leader reiterated her credentials as the best leader to negotiate Britain's exit from the European Union, a process which is due to begin 11 days after polling day. "This is useless, gesture politics of the worst kind", Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said.

In a bid to return Brexit to the heart of the General Election campaign, Mrs May will use a high-profile speech in the North East on Thursday to set out her vision of European Union withdrawal as a stepping stone to a successful future.

Commenting on the "extraordinary meltdown" of the Tory manifesto, Mr Corbyn said: "Having declared war on Britain's pensioners it is now all but impossible to find anybody who can tell you what Conservative Party policy actually is on the crucial issue of social care or how many million people stand to lose their winter fuel payments".

Celtics eliminated from Eastern finals by Cavaliers 135-102
Avery Bradley scored 19 and Jae Crowder 18 for Boston . "But the loss is behind us, and now, we've got to play better". He continued in the third quarter, playing all 12 minutes to score 21 points on 90 percent shooting in the period.

The YouGov survey published on Thursday said that 37% of people living in London think Labour leader Corbyn would make the best prime minister, while 34% went with May.

In real life, she married the video's editor Graham Nunn last month, but said she still harbours a secret desire for the Labour leader.

With a week to polling day, Mrs May argued the country had the opportunity to reaffirm last year's referendum vote for Brexit by backing her to carry on in Downing Street.

"It's between me and my team - and you've seen the excellence of the team I have around me - and with that strong and stable leadership which will take us to that brighter future".

Election campaigning was suspended in the days following the bombing, but resumed on Friday when the Labour leader gave a speech on security, telling voters "we can not be protected and cared for on the cheap".

"It is also unsafe, because it is calculated to distract attention from the shark-infested waters which we are now entering, and the fact that Theresa May herself has steered us towards them".

"A coalition which represents all parties might be best placed to secure a deal with the European Union", said Peter Dixon at Commerzbank. That's what we are fighting to do. I do not ever involve myself in personal arguments or sniping with people. If they don't want to vote for it, they are going to have to go back and speak to their constituents and explain to them why it is that we have a Tory government instead.
