Theresa May is nearly as unpopular as Jeremy Corbyn once was

The Labour leader continued touting the line earlier this year, as he launched the campaign for 2017 local election in April.

He said that the result of the general election could not overturn the European Union referendum result but added that it meant Mrs May would be forced to consider a softer divorce.

Since Labour's shock 30 seat gain in the general election, Corbyn's critics have been lining up to eat humble pie.

Lord Blunkett said: "All credit to Jeremy Corbyn".

Has your opinion of Theresa May changed since the election campaign?

Someone made the catastrophic mistake of turning the election into a presidential campaign - May vs Corbyn.

And he laughed: "It's unusual for a politician to have people chanting their name like that".

"There was an energy and vigour about it that was uplifting".

"Look out for our summer campaigns around better governance for Bexhill, making sure our schools are funded properly as well as fighting Tory plans to cut £35m from the Sussex Police budget when we've never needed bobbies on the beat more".

While the U.S. has taken only 100 days to see through Trump's "alternative reality" (though perhaps not through Trump himself), nearly nobody in Britain is even questioning the alternative reality of Brexit.

There's plenty of speculation at Westminster about how long the Conservative government will last, given that it will not have a majority in the House of Commons.

The prospects of an immediate second general election have receded, however, with the Conservatives in Downing Street working on forming a minority government with the help of Northern Ireland's DUP. But there will not be a full-blown Coalition, as there was when the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats joined forces after the 2010 election. Their party political broadcast said "Labour are making promises even though they know they will never be able to keep them - next they'll be promising free kittens to every voter"! We should all be very proud of the fact that there are so many of us out there who want to continue to fight for the a continuing close relationship with Europe. To borrow the Prime Minister's phrase, let's put the past week behind us and get to work.

Asked about their different approaches, Mr Portillo said: "Well, alas, Mrs May was what she has been for the last five to six weeks, that is to say she wanted an entirely controlled situation in which she didn't use her humanity".

Labour has also gained 35,000 new members since the General Election, he added.

But he pointed out that the Conservatives and others had severely underestimated Mr Corbyn and the Labour machine.

He said: "It is great that more young people have seemingly engaged in politics".

The Conservative candidate for Croydon North Samuel Kasumu also focused on racial inequality in his campaign, setting up an agency, Inclusive Boards, created to support the the hiring of BAME people at board level in the public sector. Sanders was speaking at a gathering styled as "The People's Summit". That is, real leaders say what they mean and then do what they say.

"A few are doing well out of it". The number of "young people" registered to vote was almost 250,000, compared with just 137,000 two years ago, according to a report in The Independent, citing data from Sky News.

That is, the less education someone had had, the more likely they were to back the Conservatives.
