UK Conservatives pledge no tax hike for top earners as vote nears

Theresa May's once-formidable lead has been eroded though her Conservative Party could still be on course to win a majority of seats in parliament.

Both leaders are crossing the country, but not quite in the same way.

But if one is to believe some of what is written and said today in the media and elsewhere the British are preparing to burn her at the stake - metaphorically speaking - as the English did to the real Joan of Arc in historical times. It might, as I suggested before, possibly have been built around optimising pictures of Mr Corbyn for TV.

ComsRes has her personal rating turn negative for the first time since becoming Prime Minister past year at minus 3% - a 12 point drop since they last tested it in February.

During May's carefully stage-managed campaign, she has hidden from the public and journalists, while repeatedly refusing to debate opposition leaders.

On Friday morning, the Crown Prosecution Service announced it would charge three people with election offences.

Unlike traditional general elections, British people now are voting on an additional category aside from economics, health and education - the ballots will be deciding UK's program for European Union exit talks, which are set to change the future of the country for generations to come.

The poll is the latest to show a narrowing lead for May.

Police have been investigating whether a Conservative election "battle bus" which visited constituencies had been properly declared under electoral laws.

"I want to form a Labour government with a majority to carry out this wonderful programme which can give so much hope and opportunity for so many people".

I have a clear and ambitious plan for Brexit.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May reacts as she speaks at an election campaign event at Pride Park Stadium in Derby, Britian.

Britons head to polls in a few days for the second time since 2015. It'll always be other people who have their houses asset stripped off them to cover the cost of yet another round of Tory corporate tax handouts.

We have been doing this before: I have written before about the fact that Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May appeared to disagree quite fundamentally about which sorts of seats this election is being fought in. "I had the balls to call an election".

"They should have a prime minister who has an absolutely resolute determination to respect their will".

But since then May's lead has been eaten away, meaning she might no longer score the thumping victory she had hoped for ahead of this month's launch of Brexit negotiations.

The PM said while she recognised the job nurses do "we have had to take some hard choices across the public sector in relation to public sector pay restraint" and that "we will put more money into the NHS, but there isn't a magic money tree that we can shake that suddenly provides for everything that people want".

She told the audience taxpayers should not have to subsidise the social care of elderly people who have a "very significant value" property.

The story Corbyn's refusal to consider using nukes "chilling" first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.
