UK's May and Corbyn questioned by public on TV show

UK's May and Corbyn questioned by public on TV show UK's May and Corbyn questioned by public on TV show

He said it was a "shame" that May refused to debate head-to-head with him before the election.

University of Queensland political science lecturer Joff Lelliott told The New Daily the Conservatives will "still nearly certainly win the election", but it was unlikely they would now win with the huge majority of 100-150 seats that many initially predicted. It would have been the easiest thing in the world, having become Prime Minister after the referendum when David Cameron resigned, to say the next election isn't until 2020.

"If we did use it, millions are going to die".

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

Mr Corbyn was challenged about his approach to Brexit and said the United Kingdom would not "necessarily" be poorer as a result of leaving the European Union.

Asked by an NHS worker about the current one per cent limit on annual public sector pay rises, the Prime Minister responded: "We have had to take hard choices across the public sector in relation to public sector pay restraint".

"I don't think people have ever truly loved this government in the way the Thatcher or Blair governments had true believers and a big, enthusiastic base of support".

Asked if he would still like to be finance minister after the election, Hammond told the BBC: "Of course I would, that's a silly question".

At some point, May warned voters that Corbyn needed to coalesce with other parties in order to form a majority government, saying that it would harm Britain's standing in European Union talks. "We all got it wrong in 2015 and we are all trying different methods to get it right this year", said Anthony Wells, a research director at YouGov.

Mrs May was also confronted by two voters who had been called to work capability assessments over mental health conditions, one of whom said she had been waiting nearly two years for NHS counselling.

In another key exchange, Mrs May said she didn't know whether North Korea receives funding from the UK's foreign aid budget.

Mr Corbyn was pressed by the audience over whether he would pursue a coalition deal with the SNP in the event of a hung parliament and the Labour leader insisted there would be "no deals". "I want to form a Labour government with a majority to carry out this fantastic programme which can give so much hope and opportunity to so many people".

If May failed to win an overall majority, she would be forced to strike a deal with another party to continue governing either as a coalition or a minority government.
