Theresa May hits the campaign trail in Maidenhead

In a speech in central London, he said he would like Parliament to have a "meaningful" vote on any withdrawal deal late next year, adding that a Labour government would then have time to renegotiate an agreement if MPs rejected what was on offer.

The Liberal Democrats were on 10 percent with the pro-Brexit UK Independence Party (UKIP) on 7 percent, both down a percentage point. Guaranteeing EU citizens' rights would be "warmly welcomed" across the EU as an indication of the sort of future relationship Britain wanted.

A new poll out today puts Labour 23% behind the Conservatives with Theresa May enjoying better personal ratings than Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher at their peak.

May told her party not to become complacent as opinion polls had been repeatedly wrong.

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who spent decades criticizing the European Union, was a lukewarm supporter of continued membership.

"Strong leadership is about standing up for the many, not the few - the prime minister and Conservatives only look after the richest, not the rest", Corbyn said.

In response, Mr Farron said the Labour leader should face his opponents and defend his policies.

"After all, we provide the rails, we provide the trains and they make the profits from running them", he said.

He said: "What the Tories have done very cleverly is give people a national interest reason for voting Tory".

GOP senator: North Korea missile test 'one of most advanced yet'
But leader Kim Jong Un has promised a sixth nuclear test, warning that his country's weapons could strike the U.S. mainland. In all, six sanction resolutions have been imposed on North Korea, since it carried out its first nuclear test in 2006.

"This was all dealt with when the allegation first came out", said the Labour source.

"Where jobs, the economy and retaining the benefits of the Single Market and the Customs Union are our priority".

"We are confident that we can win this election once Labour's message is clearly heard".

Keir Starmer, Labour's Brexit spokesman, said: "We accept that immigration rules are going to have to change when we leave the EU".

Last year's referendum vote to leave the European Union, partly driven by concerns about immigration, has created uncertainty for an estimated 3 million European Union nationals living in the United Kingdom and some 1.2 million Britons residing in other European Union countries. They are failing the people by refusing to give them a say on the final deal. He said that Mrs May would win the election.

The survey also showed that UK IFAs are broadly optimistic about the year ahead, with 81% stating that the economic growth will remain unchanged or strengthen over the next year.

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.

Brexit is the issue voters can not escape, less than a year after they chose to part ways with the EU. And they should not be used as bargaining chips.
