In a recent interview the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has backed calls for the Prime Minister to resign.
Mr. Corbyn was asked: “Given her record on policing number there have been calls for her resignation, would you back those calls?”
He responded: “Indeed I would because there’s been calls made by a lot of responsible people on this who are very worries that she (Theresa May) was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers, and now saying we have a problem – yes we do have a problem. We should have never cut the police numbers.”
He was asked again to clarify his position: “So to be clear, you would like to see her (Theresa May) resign over this.”
Corbyn responded by stating: “Well look, we’ve got an election on Thursday, and that’s perhaps the best opportunity to deal with it.”
With 3 days to go, it will be clear that Theresa May will not win a landslide as predicted at the start of the election – some polls even put the Tory lead to only 3 points, which would reduce a hung parliament.
