Corbyn, looking increasingly uncomfortable, simply said "no" when asked by Dimbleby if he would like to comment on that. Her Conservatives saw him as a shambolic joke who barely had the support of his own party.

Audience members also challenged Mr Corbyn over his promises to raise £48 billion in tax to pay for public services, with one man telling him Labour's manifesto read like "a letter to Santa Claus".

The former Conservative cabinet member, who quit as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions previous year, praised the Prime Minister, saying that by the end of the campaign the public will see her as "strong and tough".

Mrs May responded by defending her decision to go back on her initial position over an early vote saying she "had the balls to call an election". "They did kill a lot of people, didn't they?" he was asked. "I love a group hug meself!" Is Corbyn's campaign beginning to #feeltheBern?

Prime Minister Theresa May told supporters in northern England that Britain's vote almost one year ago to leave the European Union bloc will make a wealth of new opportunities available " if voters leave her in charge after the June 8 vote.

In Britain's electoral system, voters choose their local representative in the House of Commons, rather than voting directly for the prime minister and, as candidates knock on doors to canvass support, for some Corbyn is no longer enough of a deterrent to stop them backing Labour.

A closer-than-expected result in the United Kingdom might yield a similar result for Corbyn. The public, however, is seemingly finding more favor with Corbyn's desire to discuss and be transparent with them, as they feel that in an election it is better, on a politician's part, to let the people know what their true plan is for the nation's political future.
