Rudd stands in for May and hides private grief in TV debate

Rudd stands in for May and hides private grief in TV debateā€

However, the left-winger dramatically U-turn on the vow and took part in the BBC debate. She kept to her word, but the latter won many brownie points by deciding to appear at the debate in Cambridge on Wednesday night, and by all accounts, added inches ahead of the June 8 poll.

Ms Rudd faced Tim Farron, the Lib Dem leader; Angus Robertson, the SNP leader in Westminster; Paul Nuttall, the Ukip leader; Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru; and Caroline Lucas of the Green Party.

And although there was no clear victor among the bickering, Ms Rudd's combative performance will have boosted her chances of becoming the next Tory Chancellor and a future leader of the party. "Some of the offers you will hear tonight are just fanciful". "You saw the coalition of chaos in action".

"Theresa May got Amber Rudd to take her place on last night's TV debate".

Mr Nuttall argued that Muslims should do more to combat terrorism while Mr Corbyn attacked him for singling out the community.

Mandeville Canyon Road was shut down at Sunset Boulevard to accommodate fire fighting operations, Stewart said . The fire was moving at a moderate speed uphill and was estimated to have scorched 30 acres as of 3:20 p.m.

The Conservatives also came under fire over the dementia tax and austerity, with Mr Corbyn warning that a Tory government would mean "five more years of cuts to our public services and tax cuts to the wealthy few".

Many social media users also mocked the home secretary over the bold remark. She repeatedly accused Mr Corbyn of believing in a "magic money tree" but the Labour leader won applause when he suggested she was unfamiliar with the reality of poverty.

An angry Mr Corbyn was then applauded when he immediately shot back: "Have you been to a food bank? Have you seen people sleeping around our stations?" he said.

And attacking Mr Corbyn again, she said: "I know there is no extra payment you don't want to add to, no tax you don't want to rise".

"It's not like that". We will protect that.

Diego Costa not going to China
Costa played a starring role as Chelsea won the Premier League title this season, scoring 21 goals across all competitions. We came better for the second half and scored the equalizer, but they went ahead soon after.

Ms Rudd said next week's election was about choosing the strongest leadership to take Britain through Brexit. Take a look out of your window. She is not the prime minister.

The audience were very vocal when Ms Rudd asked voters to "judge (the Conservatives) on our record".

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister had made her excuses for not turning up - including that she couldn't possibly let herself be distracted by an election, even if she did call it herself.

Mr Corbyn was forced to defend his speech last Friday linking United Kingdom foreign policy to terrorism at home, claiming British military intervention in countries such as Libya had left "ungoverned spaces" which the extremists had been able to exploit to mount attacks.

"My opposition to anti-terror legislation isn't opposition to protecting us from terrorism".

Iran slams US arms deal with Saudi 'terrorists'
It is time for the United States to lift its remaining sanctions on Iran, not try and renege on the nuclear deal. The Trump administration agreed last week to roll over sanctions waivers on Iran's oil industry and crude sales.

The Labour leader said: "I utterly deplore the language that Paul Nuttall uses and the subliminal attack the whole time on people of Muslim faith".
