May's lead widens ahead of June 8 election - ORB poll

The real question is whether the result is close enough for Corbyn to not only remain as leader, but to parlay the "loss" into the kind of success Sanders has enjoyed since his presidential run.

ORB said May's lead had increased from six percentage points in its previous poll which was published on May 27.

Some of the reason for the focus on other matters is that we have not learnt anything new about the way Theresa May is planning to approach Brexit. I will decide on the circumstances at the time'.

The PM said while she recognised the job nurses do "we have had to take some hard choices across the public sector in relation to public sector pay restraint" and that "we will put more money into the NHS, but there isn't a magic money tree that we can shake that suddenly provides for everything that people want".

"It's not going to happen quickly, it's not going to happen easily, but we have to have that wish".

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.

"Even with all those young people who say they are going to vote and may not, Mrs May should still win a majority so I wouldn't sell your pounds yet", Page said.

The company was also criticised over pointing some affected customers to phone lines costing up to 62p a minute. The airline said it had a freephone number - 0800 727 800 - for people affected by the IT failure.

There have been times when Brexit has felt like the elephant in the room during the campaign.

May's lead has collapsed from 24 points since she surprised both rivals and financial markets on April 18 by calling the election.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said while May was no longer certain of increasing her parliamentary majority, she was sceptical about suggestions the Conservatives would lose their current slim majority.

New analysis by polling expert Lord Ashcroft suggested that the likeliest outcome from the June 8 election will be a Conservative majority of 60 - substantially reduced on a similar estimate last week, but still a comfortable victory for Mrs May.

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.

"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".

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised her refusal to debate with him directly.
