Polls show narrow gap between Conservatives and Labour in United Kingdom election

It was meant to be the most predictable of election campaigns.

Scottish National Party (SNP) deputy leader Angus Roberston said the prime minister had put her party before the country in calling an election because she thought she would win a massive majority, describing her as "not so much the Iron Lady as the U-turn Queen".

But with a week to go before the United Kingdom election, Theresa May's position is looking less than secure.

She was accused of lacking "guts" and of "running away" from the 90-minute BBC debate. Stories about Corbyn's past support for the Irish Republican Army and Hamas are failing to inflict serious damage.

U.K. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he will take part in a seven-way general election debate on Wednesday night as Prime Minister Theresa May stuck to her position that she would rather address voters than confront her rival on live television. It is still highly likely that May will win next Thursday.

Labour played down reports that Mr Corbyn could open the door to unskilled foreign workers as part of his immigration shake-up, insisting the document leaked to the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail was a discussion paper and "not a statement of Labour policy".

Ariana Grande is getting a major assist for her Manchester charity concert
The proceeds from the concert will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund which is set up by the Manchester City Council . Joan Grande shared a statement on social media Monday, one week after the attacks that left 22 dead and over 100 injured.

Green Party leader Caroline Lucas was also praised for offering her advice to Theresa May. Labour would get 257 seats, up from 229.

The Labour leader said: "I utterly deplore the language that Paul Nuttall uses and the subliminal attack the whole time on people of Muslim faith".

Earlier this week Mrs May warned that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was not prepared for Brexit negotiations and would go into talks with Brussels - scheduled to begin on 19 June - "alone and naked". He went on to win with almost 60% of the vote.

By coincidence, Trump and Corbyn have each been married three times.

It's as though he thinks it's some sort of game, a game of Monopoly perhaps. Labour's campaign has been about taking our polices to people across the country and listening to the concerns of voters. "As such there is an "x-factor" to him which it would be churlish not to acknowledge".

He added: "This has been the general pattern of general elections for an age, and whether you believe our poll findings or those of others will depend on whether or not you think Jeremy Corbyn can actually buck that trend".

Wenger in! Arsenal manager signs two year contract extension
And Winterburn, who won the Premier League in 1998 with Arsenal under Wenger, insists it is time for the Frenchman to end Arsenal's 13-year title drought.

He was asked on the BBC what price his 30 hours of free childcare a week would come at. Such a lead indicates the Tories would secure a majority.

bThis shaky grasp of figures can cut through to the opinion polls.

Mr Corbyn has cancelled planned appearances at stump events in Swindon and Stroud, and a rally in Bristol. But voters appear to be unmoved. But some market players also say signs of softness in some economic data are raising questions about whether the Fed can raise interest rates two more times this year and start shrinking its balance sheet later this year. "She might be outside your house sizing it up to pay for your social care".

Some thought the prime minister might be hiding in the audience.

People on Twitter were left feeling very confused, since the colours represent the value of the money and not what can be bought with it, though some expressed their keenness to make the most of her misunderstanding of the classic board game and challenged her to a game. "They dropped the ball and it is very hard to turn their line around". They've tried to construct a cult of personality around a non-person.

Turning the tables on the Tories and emerging with a 5-point lead would still leave Labour short of an overall majority in the Commons, swing calculations suggest.
