A YouGov poll showed earlier in the week that a hung parliament was likely in this general election since the Tories could lose 20 seats and Labour could gain nearly 30.

But Mrs May defended that decision in the evening TV appearance, when the two leaders took the stage one at a time to face audience questions.

May praised her performance when she stood in for the prime minister at a televised election debate on Wednesday featuring all Britain's main party leaders after May herself declined to attend. Mr Corbyn's most hard moment came when he refused to say if he would authorise a retaliatory nuclear strike.

Another gentlemen in the audience said: "Would you use it as second use or would you allow North Korea or some idiot in Iran to bomb us and say "ooh, we better start talking", you'll be too late!"

But the Prime Minister received a boost last night from a sensational leaked conversation between the Labour leader and his Left-wing spin doctor Seumas Milne.

Asked about environmental standards post-Brexit, Corbyn said he wanted to ensure that European environmental laws were written into British law.

But the news that the cuts will be extending for nine months past the end of June has sent the price of oil tumbling. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were back well below $50, at $48.46, down 44 cents, or 0.9 percent.

However, Theresa May's personal approval rating has become negative for the first time since she became prime minister in July 2016, a fresh ComRes poll showed on Saturday. "We need to get it right".

Prime Minister Theresa May would extend her Conservative government's majority in Parliament - a move that would help her push through some of the trickier parts of the ongoing Brexit negotiations.

One woman becoming emotional as she described emerging from a fitness for work test in tears after being asked about her suicide attempts to which the PM said: "I'm not going to make any excuses for the experience you've had".

"Let's hope that no prime minister of any political persuasion in the future is ever put in the situation that they will effectively be wiping out humanity, because that is a failure of diplomacy, it's a failure of foreign policy and it's a failure of defence policy. I had the balls to call an election". "There isn't a magic money tree we can shake", she said.

The Labour leader also came under fire for his attitude towards nuclear weapons, as the audience pressed him on whether he would be ready to use Britain's Trident nuclear deterrent.

Apple Debuts Smart Speaker Homepod
Like other smart speakers, audio information isn't sent to Apple's cloud until this voice command has been issued, Apple said. The Echo, released in 2015, and Google Home, released past year , were the first entrants in a promising market.

But Mr Corbyn insisted Labour had a "great team of very experienced people" who could be trusted to negotiate Brexit, insisting that the United Kingdom would "not necessarily be poorer" following withdrawal.

"We're very clear on Brexit".

She adds that Corbyn's "fantasy politics" may seem attractive to young voters who do not remember the 1970s, but added: 'It is our job to remind them we have seen this movie before and we know how it ends: in calamity for our country'.

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

She said if there was a hung parliament, her pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP) would consider backing a minority Labour administration.

Apple brings AR to developers, and a completely redesigned app store
Most with an iPhone or iPad will be used to iOS 10, the most recent version of Apple's mobile operating system. Siri will leverage the same AI learnings and capabilities to work on the HomePod smart speaker.
