Drop 'tribal politics' - Britain's May takes election fight to Wales

May is targeting Wales, a largely rural country which has always been a stronghold of her Labour opponents but voted in favour of Brexit, by exploiting rifts in the opposition party to press her argument that only she can win a good divorce deal with Brussels.

United Kingdom opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said Sunday that he may suspend British airstrikes on Syria if he is elected prime minister in the country's election of June 8. "Where EU nationals living here are guaranteed their rights and can live in certainty that Brexit will not affect them", he said.

Starmer accused May's government of "taking option after option off the table" before talks even start.

Tim Farron said: "He is running away from facing his opponents, he is running away from defending his policies, he is running away from leadership. We've had some very problematic polling results in recent times".

Shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the option of remaining in the EU customs union - which would severely restrict the prospect of independent United Kingdom trade deals - should be part of withdrawal negotiations.

Party Brexit spokesman Sir Keir Starmer said that Labour accepted the Brexit vote, and would treat the end of Free Movement - the Single Market mechanism which allows unlimited and effectively unvetted migration between European Union member-states - as a "red line" in negotiations with Brussels if it were in power.

The source said Labour had made clear it backs "strong security service funding and support to deal with the terrorist threat and other threats".

Sir Keir said that in seeking a "reformed" relationship with the single market, or customs union, Labour accepted that rules on free movement of workers could not continue as immigration had been such a major factor in the Leave referendum victory. Boris Johnson has said no deal is no problem.

British lawmakers on Wednesday (19 April) overwhelmingly backed Prime Minister Theresa May's call for a snap election, paving the way for a June vote she hopes will give her a "mandate to complete Brexit".

May has said that she favors a clean break - leaving the single market and removing the United Kingdom from the obligation to allow unlimited migration from the European Union, known as "freedom of movement".

Labour's leader said the only debate he wanted was one between the "two people who could form the next government".

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said at the weekend that a Labour government led by him will create Bank Holidays on the patron saints' days of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.
