Poll: Who do you want to be the next British Prime Minister?
The Labour party is catching up with the Conservatives in the polls.

THERESA MAY AND Jeremy Corbyn faced questions from angry voters in a live BBC programme yesterday.

Prime Minister and Conservative leader May was accused of “broken promises” for calling an early election for 8 June after she had repeatedly said she would not, and for a U-turn on a key manifesto pledge on elderly social care.

Labour leader Corbyn, meanwhile, was criticised over his “letter to Santa Claus” – also known as his party’s spending manifesto.

The Tories had a commanding 20-point poll lead over Labour when the election was called, but this has since decreased to the low single figures. May is expected to remain on as PM, but Corbyn could still pull off a surprise victory.
