UK opposition leader urges PM Theresa May to quit over police cuts


Yesterday Jeremy Corbyn said he would back calls for Theresa May to resign as Prime Minister over cuts to police numbers, as the fallout from the London Bridge terroris attack dominated the General Election Campaign.

Seven women and five men aged between 19 and 60 were arrested under the Terrorism Act in Barking on Sunday.

However, after a speech in London she repeatedly dodged questions over whether she regretted cuts made when she was home secretary that have resulted in 20,000 fewer police officers and a 20 per cent drop in armed officers.

According to the Scotland Yard, one of the terrorists carried Irish identity card. Seven people were killed and 48 injured when the assailants in a white van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing a police officer and revelers in bars around Borough Market.

"That's why Jeremy Corbyn has set out proposals for, instead of having the cuts to capital gains tax the Conservatives want, which would give money back to investors, instead we should put that money into 10,000 police officers across the country".

London police chief Cressida Dick told BBC TV that they have seized "a huge amount of forensic material" after going through the van used in the attack "very very carefully".

"That's why we want to work with the internet companies, we want to work with those companies and individuals who develop the apps, develop the technology, so that they can help us to find the radicalisation", she said.

The first victim of the attack has been named as Canadian national Christine Archibald who worked in a homeless shelter until she moved to Europe to be with her fiancé. The police thanked the media for not speculating about the identity of the three attackers.

She added: "I have negotiated for Britain in Europe and I know that the best place to start is to be clear about where you stand and what you want".

Bradley had nothing concrete to add to May's suggestion that more would be done to combat online extremism, saying: "We've been clear for some [time] that there can not be safe spaces for people to operate on the internet and promote radicalisation".

She said that police and intelligence agencies had foiled 18 plots since 2013 - five in the last nine weeks - and that there was a "high volume of people who want to attack us".

With the Brexit negotiations beginning just 11 days after the June 8 polls, May said, "we have no time to waste".

The Prime Minister insisted her Labour rival was not equipped to negotiate Britain's Brexit future.

"These are the most basic questions that need to be answered - and yet we have heard nothing at all about them from Jeremy Corbyn".
