She added: "This election is not about who people might have voted for before".

Thirty-one percent of Conservative Party posts used the exact phrase "strong and stable leadership", while the notion of strength - such as the need for a "strong hand" in Brexit negotiations - features in almost half of the party's posts (49%) since the election was called.

"Our manifesto will be an offer, and we believe the policies in it are very popular", Mr Corbyn said, adding that there had been unanimous agreement on a programme that would "transform the lives of many people in our society".

After a torrid day for the Labour campaign on Thursday, Jeremy Corbyn will hope to move on with a speech on national security and foreign policy.

Trump contradicts White House on reasons for Comey firing, calls ex-FBI director "showboat" and "grandstander".

The left-winger has also been criticised for inviting Sinn Fein chief Gerry Adams to the House of Commons shortly after the provisional IRA, attempted to murder then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher with a bombing in Brighton in 1984.

A group of 16 opposition Labour Party lawmakers seeking re-election in London said on Friday Britain needed to remain a member of the European single market after Brexit, contradicting the party's official position ahead of a June 8 election.

Corbyn has hit back saying that May is "pandering" US President Donald Trump.

JEREMY Corbyn and Theresa May have clashed over foreign and defence policy as the General Election campaign focused on leadership. "And pandering to an erratic administration will not deliver stability".

Mr Corbyn condemned Mr Trump's U.S. administration for "recklessly" endangering global security through interventions in North Korea and Syria while opposing President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.

After claims from Tory high command that he was a pacifist, Mr Corbyn insisted he was not, saying: "I accept that military action, under global law and as a genuine last resort, is in some circumstances necessary".

"Corbyn has shown beyond all doubt that he would put Britain's security at risk", said Conservative Defence Secretary Michael Fallon.

Recent U.K. governments, both Conservative and Labour, have joined USA -led military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and against the Islamic State group in Syria.

"The fact is that the "war on terror" which has driven these interventions has failed".

The Labour leader said wars have increased insecurity "at home", and, "they have caused destabilization and devastation overseas".

Brown said: "That is more poverty than even under Mrs Thatcher".

Mr Corbyn, a veteran opponent of nuclear weapons and military action, will attempt to reassure voters sceptical about his anti-war record.
