Corbyn challenges Theresa May over 'dementia tax'

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

He said it was a "shame" that May refused to debate head-to-head with him before the election.

According to the poll, the Conservatives are on track to be 18 seats short of the overall majority of 326, thus increasing the possibility of a hung parliament.

Mr Corbyn was challenged about his approach to Brexit and said the United Kingdom would not "necessarily" be poorer as a result of leaving the European Union.

Pollsters, who universally got it wrong at the last election in 2015, showed support for May and the Conservatives falling after she was forced to backtrack on one of her most striking election pledges to make elderly people pay more for their social care, which opponents dubbed a "dementia tax". It is subtitled: "On June 9th, this man could be Prime Minister".

She fielded angry questions from nurse Victoria Davey, who said her pay slips had not increased since 2009, and asked: "How can that be fair, in the light of the job that we do?"

"You'd have Diane Abbott who can't add up sitting around the cabinet table, John McDonnell who's a Marxist, Nicola Sturgeon who wants to break our country up, and Tim Farron who wants to take us back into the European Union, the direct opposite of what the people want".

Asked why voters should trust despite failing to give detailed costings for the plans, the Prime Minister said: "What our manifesto had done is be open with people about the great challenges that we believe this country faces".

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.

In another key exchange, Mrs May said she didn't know whether North Korea receives funding from the UK's foreign aid budget.

The Labour leader insisted he would not strike a deal with SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and was working for a majority Labour government.

This is of course the final weekend before we go to the polls, and in many cases, the final opportunity to catch people at home.

"IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN" Labour chiefs "ban Diane Abbott from going on TV" after string of auto crash interviews - so how do they expect her to run the Home Office?
