Corbyn: It's a shame PM has not joined in head-to-head debate

I caught up with the Conservative Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, out campaigning in Gower, whose main line of attack was to claim that Mr Corbyn had not even mastered the details of his party's own policies, never mind lead the Brexit talks, while the Liberal Democrats responded by saying he should not be trusted in the negotiations when he can not control his own MPs.

Joan Ryan, the Labour MP for Enfield North, made the frank admission in a letter to her constituents, adding that she believes many former Labour voters now prefer Theresa May as Prime Minister to Jeremy Corbyn.

"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.

"I think Corbyn would now be feeling more confident they're not going to suffer the electoral wipe-out initially feared", Dr Lelliott said.

ComRes has her personal rating turn negative for the first time since becoming Prime Minister previous year at minus 3% - a 12 point drop since they last tested it in February.

Jeremy Corbyn has hit out at Theresa May for refusing to debate with him on television, saying it was a "shame" that she had decided not to take part in a head-to-head showdown.

"And you've backtracked on your social care policy". The Labour leader said: "I'm very sorry this is not a debate, this is a series of questions".

"That's what I think is important in an election campaign - not politicians arguing amongst each other, but actually listening and taking questions from voters".

Perhaps the highlight of Corbyn's Q&A session came when his opposition to the use of nuclear weapons was challenged by audience.

The star of the Blurred Lines video and Gone Girl wasn't the only one who made a statement with a barely-there appearance. Yesterday, the handsome Jessica Chastain (member of the jury) arrived black glasses on the nose and smile to the lips.

"I would view the idea of having to use a nuclear weapon as something that was resulting in a failure in the whole world's diplomatic system", he said.

He said: "If we did use it, millions are going to die". Ask anyone in the British army at the time ...

Mr Corbyn replied: "Of course not, of course I would not do that".

"If you are to bring about a peace process anywhere. there has to be a coming together".

The Labour leader responded: 'I urge you to read it.

He said: 'I would do everything I can to ensure that any threat is actually dealt with earlier on by negotiations and by talks, so that we do adhere to our obligations under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Mrs May then faced more heath care questions when confronted by mental health patients who told her they had lost benefits due to failing Work Capability Assessments.

Although she repeated her assertion that no deal would be better than a bad deal on Brexit, she appeared to accept that negotiations on Britain's future relationship with the European Union could not begin until "sufficient progress" is made on the divorce settlement.

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.
