Campaign Report: 8 Days to Go

More important than any TV debate, it will be Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn at the Brexit negotiating table just 11 days after the election. Only the Conservatives can be trusted with Brexit.

The fact that Theresa May has refused to debate Jeremy Corbyn in Cambridge tonight is another sign of her weakness.

Half a boiled egg, one slice of bread with 12 baked beans or 37.5 cornflakes: that’s the Tories’ 7p per pupil breakfast for schoolchildren.

Under Labour thousands of unskilled immigrants would threaten working class wages and jobs.

Failing to show up to tonight’s debate would show extreme cowardice from a Prime Minister resolutely avoiding proper scrutiny.

Tonight Amber Rudd must explain why she believes that the people of Scotland should entrust their future to the Tories.

Theresa May chickens out of tonight’s TV debate.

If you think YouGov’s shock poll is right a hung parliament is 9/2 at the bookies.

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
