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".

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.
