Party leaders differ on Brexit deal in British election event

For the Tories, Mr Davis praised Mrs May by saying: "The Prime Minister brought it back to the fundamentals - who is going to get the best Brexit deal, and in doing so who will be able to secure our economy, our public services and our national security".

The Sky News TV event was staged as consecutive interviews after Mrs May said she wouldn't go head-to-head with her opponent.

A small business owner in the studio audience called Labour's plan to increase corporation tax and tax private school fees "ruthless and short-sighted".

An article published Sunday in the Sunday Times quotes a column written by the Labour leader in October 2014 for the Morning Star in which Corbyn wrote about attending a ceremony in Tunisia "where wreaths were laid...on the graves of [those] killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991", as Corbyn explained it.

He would not be drawn on whether he would order a drone strike strike against a terrorist plotting overseas to attack the UK.

Mr Corbyn replied: "We got along absolutely fine".

She said budgets were now being protected for both counter-terrorism forces and overall policing. "It is a completely hypothetical question".

Paxman's razor sharp tongue asked May, a supporter of remain in last year's European Union referendum, whether she had now changed her mind.

Corbyn played the victim when the interviewer kept cutting him off, drawing Paxman into admitting that he would not let him finish his answer.

"Do you know what, I had a very nice chat with the Queen", Corbyn said to laughter after being pressed on whether he would abolish the monarchy, a long-held personal belief that is not part of Labour's official platform.

"May's potential dependence on minorities such as hard Brexiteers or hard Remainers would raise the risk of "chaotic Brexit", but also the chance of a much softer Brexit than she now aims for", Citi said.

"Look at the evidence", Rudd said earlier when asked on BBC TV's Andrew Marr show if a Labour victory would make terror attacks more likely.

"I think he should have been arrested and he should have been put on trial".

And he also defended using the term "friends" towards the militant Islamist group Hamas, calling it "inclusive language" at a meeting where he had been promoting the need for a two-state solution in the Middle East.

Mrs May committed to a cap on costs in response to a backlash after unveiling her social care reforms, but the Tories say the limit on how much people will have to pay will not be decided until a consultation following the June 8 election.

"Having broken her flagship pledge on social care just days after she launched her manifesto, Theresa May needs to give clear answers" about her plans, Andrew Gwynne, Labour's election coordinator, said in an email.

While Corbyn insisted he would "make sure there's a deal" with the European Union before Britain leaves the bloc, May said she was "prepared to walk out".

"We are doing the right thing in making a success of Brexit", she said, vowing to maintain her reputation as a "bloody hard woman" during talks with European Union leaders if her party wins the election and keeps power.
