Who won? Well, the polls on June 8th will give us a definitive answer.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's lead over the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has sharply fallen in the run-up to next week's general election.

"What people will know when they go to vote on Thursday is that it is the Conservative Party that always has been, is and always will be a low-tax party".

The Labour leader followed the Prime Minister onto a BBC Question Time special, but the two did not face each other in a debate.

"I don't believe she or the Conservatives are doing what is best for the United Kingdom", he said, arguing that "it would be better to have a Labour government". "We all got it wrong in 2015 and we are all trying different methods to get it right this year".Hoping to capitalise on the Labour leader's unpopularity, May "deliberately set up the election as a presidential-style fight between herself and Corbyn", says Time - and promptly "blew" her double-digit lead.

Jeremy Corbyn has hit out at Theresa May for refusing to debate with him on television, saying it was a "shame" that she had decided not to take part in a head-to-head showdown.

"And you've backtracked on your social care policy".

The Telegraph said it asked Fallon if high earners could be sure their taxes would not go up under a new Conservative government, to which he replied: "Yes".

"I think there's complete chaos going on at the top of the Government", he told reporters during a campaign visit to Lincoln.

He has faced repeated questions over his personal commitment to renewing the Trident nuclear deterrent, which the Labour supports. "It's not going to happen quickly, it's not going to happen easily, but we have to have that wish". "They did kill a lot of people, didn't they?" he was asked.

Her comments were seized on by Mr Corbyn, who said the Conservative leadership was in disarray.

Corbyn reiterated that "there has to be a coming together" in an effort to bring peace to any territory, especially if it involves "talking to people that you don't agree with". "Don't tell us it's a pay rise", he said.

"I utterly deplore Donald Trump's decision", he said.

"I would sign a letter with any other leader that would deplore that, straight away".

"You'd have Diane Abbott who can't add up sitting around the cabinet table, John McDonnell who's a Marxist, Nicola Sturgeon who wants to break our country up, and Tim Farron who wants to take us back into the European Union, the direct opposite of what the people want".

In a hard moment, she was challenged by a woman who struggled to hold back tears as she described waiting for more than a year for counselling on the state-run National Health Service.

The PM said she would make "no excuses" for her treatment, but insisted she was determined to improve the handling of mental health in the NHS.

But Mr Corbyn appears to have failed to convince voters with enough speed or in enough numbers to threaten Mrs May's safe return. The poor, and even the very poor, flocked to them as the UK Independence Party imploded.
