UK May's Conservatives hold 18 point poll lead - Survation

Mr Corbyn's promise of extra cash came as a poll indicated the NHS, rather than Brexit, is now the most important issue to the public.

A ComRes poll (1,012 respondents sampled on 11 May 2017) brought a number of threads together.

Labour has promised to invest a further £37bn in the NHS in England over the course of the next parliament if it wins power at the upcoming election.

The only movers are Labour, who have gained one percentage point and moved from 30% to 31%.

Jeremy Corbyn has made a staunch defence of his decision to draft in a former Communist trade union official to help run Labour's general election campaign.

"UKIP will continue to be the party that speaks up for those outside the Tory magic circle", he said during a policy launch event in Westminster. The capital will see something of a revival for Liberal Democrat support, according to YouGov's figures; their vote share is predicted to climb from eight per cent to 14 per cent.

The pledged money, which comes as the NHS is reeling from a malware attack which closed down GP practices and stopped hospital staff from working on Friday, would also ensure the NHS can meet waiting time targets, the party said.

We know from the result of the June 2016 European Union referendum that the United Kingdom is divided on the issue of Leave or Remain.

Of the eight who took part in the group, only one was certain to vote Labour, with two backing the Tories, one the Lib Dems and the others now undecided. Overall, 62 per cent nominated Ms May and 20 per cent Mr Corbyn, but among those who voted Remain in 2016, almost half (47 per cent) chose Ms May compared with 33 per cent who chose Mr Corbyn. Not that they will admit it in election mode. We faced strong challenges from all parties, and independents, right across the country.

I dig what he says.

Mr Corbyn sidestepped questions from interviewer Julie Etchingham about whether he would quit if he led Labour to electoral defeat. But as was demonstrated in the 2015 General Election, this age group is less reliable at turning up on polling day. It is utterly brutal and anyone who is not prepared for the terms of such a race should not be allowed anywhere near the starting line.

Labour's Clive Lewis has denied the suggestion that his support for tactical voting is an act of defiance against leader Jeremy Corbyn.

With less than a month to go until votes are cast in the United Kingdom general election, leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corbyn met with grime MC JME in a bid to encourage young people to register and vote on Sunday, May 14.

A Survation poll earlier on Monday put the Conservatives' lead at 18 points.
