Corbyn argues that May's policy plans would create "war between generations".

"I had the balls to call an election", May told the studio audience of BBC's Question Time programme in York, northern England.

She focused on Brexit and attacks on Labour over the question of leadership.

"We are fighting this election to win and we are mounting a fantastic campaign in order to get that message across of how different our society and our politics could be", he said.

"How can you sleep at night?"

Asked if he could guarantee that all or a proportion of the one million jobs would go to British workers, Mr Corbyn said after the speech: "They would obviously be for people looking for work, the vast majority will be for people coming out of our schools and our colleges and our universities, and we will not allow anyone to only recruit overseas for jobs here".

"I don't think people have ever truly loved this government in the way the Thatcher or Blair governments had true believers and a big, enthusiastic base of support".

On Good Morning Wales, the First Minister Carwyn Jones said Jeremy Corbyn could achieve this by turning up and being fleet of foot.

Under the Tory plan, the value of the family property will for the first time be taken into account when working out how much an individual must pay towards social care in their own home, as it is for residential care. "Your entire manifesto has holes in it, and everyone else can see that". Mrs May said she would "make no excuses" for the way she had been treated and people with mental health issues had to be given "more support at an early stage".

"Our model implies that we don't think they will".

Mrs May maintained she was not now regretting calling election in the face of a narrowing lead over Labour in the polls.

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".

Fed is set to raise rates this week despite political tumult
However, they implied traders have not fully priced in the Fed's target range on rates reaching 1.25-1.50 percent until late 2018. Some economists, however, say the economy can tolerate higher rates, as they remain low by historical standards.

But while May called the election to gain a larger majority in the House of Commons going into the two-year negotiations with Europe on the UK's exit, issues of austerity, the health and social services and pensions have increasingly dominated the debate.

The UK Labour party leader has received an important boost from the Vermont senator and leading American progressive Bernie Sanders, who faced off against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic party primaries past year.

Mr Corbyn faced demands from the audience to say whether he would be ready to use Britain's Trident deterrent.

It's quite splendid, and people thought they'd spotted our next leader.

And describing the manifesto, branded a "suicide note" by his opponents, Miliband said: 'It's a more radical manifesto than mine but it's a manifesto that I'm proud to be associated with. "You were talking to them".

Corbyn, looking increasingly uncomfortable, simply said "no" when asked by Dimbleby if he would like to comment on that. "Actually, so was the government at the same time".

Mr Corbyn hit out at US President Donald Trump over his decision to pull out of the Paris climate change deal - and Mrs May's decision not to sign a letter with other European Union leaders condemning the move. Mr Corbyn said he "deplored all acts of terrorism".

But Mrs May insisted she was not ducking a debate, saying she preferred to take questions direct from voters. "But I have been very impressed by the campaign that he has been running and I wish him the very best". I lost the election. I was willing to do that because I think this is a really important moment for our country.

We are entering "get the vote out" territory. That is exactly what I am trying to in the United States with the Democratic party. "But we've got to get it right".

'And so I would be actively engaged to ensure that danger did not come about.

"Where the Tories look to divide, Labour seeks to bring people together", Corbyn said in May.

Both leaders took a pummelling from voters over a swathe of controversial policies, but neither seemed to lose their calm.
