Corbyn wrong-foots May by taking part in United Kingdom election debate

"We have to be prepared to walk out", she said to applause during a Sky News interview on Monday.

"We can't be sure Theresa May is going to achieve her political objective of a landslide majority", he said.

"We won't start the negotiations by megaphone diplomacy and threatening Europe with some sort of offshore tax haven on the shores of Europe", he said.

The Labour leader was back to the relaxed and chatty character he had appeared as in his encounter with Jeremy Paxman the evening before.

The second most popular, with just over a thousand retweets, was a viewer quoting Jeremy Paxman, who said European Union negotiators might think Theresa May was a "blow-hard who collapses at the first sign of gunfire".

Chris Burn: Could wildcard Corbyn follow Trump's triumph?Chris Moncrieff: No room for Tory smugness as polls narrowConservative candidate stuns Batley voters with shooting jokeAfterwards, both sides claimed victory, with Labour saying Mrs May had "floundered" on public services, while the Tories said Mr Corbyn's comments on security were "deeply worrying".

"Debates where politicians are squabbling among themselves doesn't do anything for the process of electioneering".

Prime Minister Theresa May's re-election campaign has been so focused on herself that her party's name is not featured on the bus she tours the country in. I set out in life to try and change things and bring about greater justice in our society.

Donald Trump blamed for climate chat grinding to halt
Trump has repeatedly expressed doubts about climate change, at times calling it a hoax to weaken USA industry. The European Union and China indicated they would press ahead with the deal, regardless of USA participation.

What followed on the BBC's prime time interview was a mixture of manhole cover banter, reminiscences about Corbyn's parents and baby photo snaps as well as an attack on the "totally unreasonable" behaviour of the media.

"Refusing to join me in Cambridge tonight would be another sign of Theresa May's weakness, not strength", he added. The little lad was, he admitted, "a bit free-spirited and I kept climbing out of the pram and running off". "Have you seen people sleeping around our stations?" he said.

He said the land had been concreted over and it was the "devil's own job" to turn it into a garden.

In his later years Corbyn has refereed children's football matches and Oduba, a former sports reporter, asked him whether the under-10s or the parliamentary Labour Party was easier to control.

Asked about his experience refereeing an under-10 football match, Oduba asked: "Who is it easier to keep control of, 10-year-olds or the Parliamentary Labour Party?"

Questioned about his school record, which saw him gain just two Es at A-level, he said: "I was a not academically successful student".

Mr Corbyn defended his description of the Palestinian group Hamas as "friends" and his comment that the killing of Osama bin Laden by United States special forces had been a "tragedy".
