General election: Tory victory 'will not strengthen May's Brexit hand'

"She looked across the despatch box and thought "I can not resist the temptation of taking on Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party - the most ineffective opposition in inter-planetary history".

He said: "Let's be clear, this election will be a referendum on Brexit and the best chance we have of stopping Britain committing an act of great self harm".

Asked why she was refusing to take part in TV debates with other party leaders during the election campaign, Mrs May said: "I've been doing head-to-head debates with Jeremy Corbyn week in and week out since I became Prime Minister".

May continues to be the favored choice for prime minister, with 54 percent of people preferring her to Labour's Jeremy Corbyn, who is backed by 15 percent of voters.

Corbyn dismissed the view held by some commentators that a Conservative victory in the upcoming election was a foregone conclusion.

"At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division. the country is coming together but Westminster is not", she said, blaming opposition parties for threats to obstruct Brexit.

The offer of a second referendum on the final deal with the European Union has been a long-standing policy of the Liberal Democrats.

On Tuesday Prime Minister Theresa May had called for a snap General Election on 8 June, which was approved by MPs on Wednesday.

In a speech in London, he will say that Labour will fight on behalf of Britain's "true wealth creators" and overturn a "rigged system" which favours rich individuals and businesses.

Labour is considering a referendum on the future Brexit deal in a bid to win over support from remain voters, according to a report in the Times, as it looks set to make a big push to the left in its manifesto.

"Nobody thinks the Labour Party will gain a single seat from the Conservatives".

The current mood is more promising than when May formally triggered the two-year Brexit process last month, a step that saw both sides taking tough positions on the talks ahead. The Conservatives would need a swing of 5.1 per cent, and Labour has held the seat at every General Election since 1997. May is not only keen to win her own mandate but also to be less at the mercy of her party's anti-EU right-wing when it comes to parliamentary votes.

This eventually prompted Mr Corbyn's spokesman to issue a statement saying: "A second referendum is not our policy and it won't be in our manifesto".

Mr Tajani, whose organisation has a veto on the final Brexit withdrawal deal, said the meeting went well.
