In a separate report, The Guardian noted that Corbyn presented Labour's string of recent new policies, for example a £10 minimum wage and cracking down on corporate tax avoidance, as an alternative "to unlock opportunities for every single person in this country".

Shortly afterwards, as speculation mounted that Labour could be set to dump its backing for the nuclear deterrent - an issue Labour MPs are deeply divided about - a spokesperson issued a statement saying: "The decision to renew Trident has been taken and Labour supports that".

A spokesman for Corbyn said: "On 9 June, we will either have a Labour government or a Tory one".

Britain's opposition Labour Party said Tuesday that it will tear up the government's negotiating plan for Brexit and guarantee all European Union citizens in the United Kingdom the right to stay if it wins the June 8 national election.

He pledged Labour would keep Scotland in the United Kingdom and ensure the whole country is "a far fairer, a more just and equal version of anything the Tories could ever offer".

She said, "We need a general election and we need one now".

May has already warned her party not to take victory for granted, a message that was echoed by pollsters on Saturday. "The choice is clear". "It may mean, by the way, that they vote Tory, for candidates who are prepared to give this commitment", he argued.

At the Huffington Post, Leon Spence, a former Labour councillor who defected to the Conservatives following Corbyn's second election victory previous year, calls on Tory activists to go "toe to toe" with Labour campaigners.
