Last quote by Theresa May on Labour Party

I think it's very important as people are thinking about going to university that they are not misled in any way. It is the case that more disadvantaged 18-year-olds are applying to university than ever before. I believe the right honourable gentleman the leader of the opposition said exactly the opposite and I think he should apologise for having said that. Labour were going to abolish student debt. Now they say it wasn't a promise at all. Students know Labour can't be trusted on student fees.feedback

I expect [students] will turn up in their Corbyn T-shirts and he will relish in it.feedback

That is why I say to the right honourable gentleman, this should be an issue that across this house we recognise is a matter that has been developing over decades. It is a matter that has occurred under governments of both colours, under councils of all political persuasions and is something that I would hope we would say we should come together and ensure that we get to the answers over why this has happened over many years, what has gone wrong, and how do we stop it from happening in the future.feedback

As we have seen, the number of buildings where the cladding has failed the combustibility test, form those samples that have been sent in already from local authorities and housing associations, this is a much wider issue. It is an issue which has been continuing for many years, for decades, in terms of cladding being put up in buildings. There are real questions as to how this has happened, why it happened and how we can ensure that it doesn't happen in the future.feedback

We need to get to the bottom of it, and that's what we're going to do.feedback

People who say that we should be not dealing on this as a reciprocal basis simply don't understand what negotiations are about, because the other side will be negotiating on these issues.feedback

He talks about the issue of no deal being better than a bad deal. I'll tell him what I worry about in terms of a bad deal: I worry about those who appear to suggest in Europe that we should be punished in some sense for leaving the European Union.feedback

I often say that no deal is better than a bad deal because that is in Britain's national interest. Jeremy Corbyn seems to think that any deal, no matter what the price, no matter what the terms, is better than no deal. That is why, he is not fit to negotiate a good Brexit deal for Britain.feedback

I have been responsible for giving the police extra powers to deal with terrorism. Jeremy Corbyn has boasted that he has opposed those powers and opposed the powers for anti-terror actions throughout his time in parliament. And I also support, absolutely, shoot-to-kill and I think what we saw on our streets on Saturday was how important that was.feedback

On Thursday the people of the UK have a very simple choice. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities and they do. We have protected counter terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers and since 2015 we have protected overall police budgets - and that's despite the fact that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the House of Commons suggested that police budgets could be cut.feedback

Our position on tax hasn't changed. We have set it out in the manifesto. 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. When people come to vote they know they have a choice between a Conservative Party that always has been and always will be a party that believes in lower taxes and a Labour Party whose manifesto we know will cost ordinary working people.feedback

If you don't think Corbyn – propped up by the SNP and Lib Dems – is up to being Prime Minister, negotiating Brexit, or keeping our economy strong and nation secure, there's no safe way to vote Labour wherever you live. I believe in the British people. I believe that with determination, ingenuity and common sense, we can use this moment of great national change to shape a better future for Britain.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault . . . and I want to make something clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: there can never be an excuse for terrorism, there can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

You can vote for any other party and risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister in just nine days' time and a Prime minister with a chaotic hung parliament. If I lose just six (seats) then the government loses its majority and we risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.feedback

The promise of Brexit is great, the opportunities before us enormous. If we get Brexit right, then together we can do great things. If I lose just six (seats) then the government loses its majority and we risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.feedback

I think we should all worry about the alternative. The alternative is the possibility of Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister and John McDonnell being in charge of our economic future and Diane Abbott in charge of our national security and all the time the strings being pulled by the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish nationalists.feedback

What we need to do is have proper control of our immigration and, of course, we are going to be able to put in rules for people coming from the EU to the UK once we leave the European Union. I want to ensure we control migration. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party want uncontrolled migration.feedback

There's a very clear choice at this election; there's a very clear difference between myself, and Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party. I want to ensure we are controlling migration because too high uncontrolled migration puts pressure on our public services, but it also lowers wages at the lower end of the income scale.feedback

But if you don't vote at this election and if you don't vote for me at this election you risk sleepwalking into the very real danger that Jeremy Corbyn will find himself in the hot seat, in the negotiating chair on your behalf.feedback

I am ready to go. Jeremy Corbyn is not. There will be no time to waste, no way of stalling, no way of asking Europe to hang on while we figure out what to do. The Europeans are ready to go and are determined to fight for a deal that works for them.feedback

A significant amount of police activity has taken place over the last 24 hours and there are now 11 suspects in custody. The public should be clear about what this means. A threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely. The country should remain vigilant. I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you, and it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism.feedback

I have been here with the G7, working with other international leaders to fight terrorism. At the same time, Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault and he has chosen to do that a few days after one of the worst terrorist atrocities we have experienced in the United Kingdom. I want to make something clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: there can never be an excuse for terrorism, there can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

The choice that people face at the general election has just become starker. It's a choice between me, working constantly to protect the national interest and to protect our security - and Jeremy Corbyn , who frankly isn't up to the job.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault and he's chosen to do that just a few days after one of the worst atrocities we have experienced in the United Kingdom. I want to make it clear: there can never ever be an excuse for terrorism. The plan to ensure there was military support for the police is a well prepared plan, developed a while ago so that at a time we go to critical in our threat level that extra support could be made available and that is exactly what happened. Make no mistake, the fight is moving from the battlefield to the internet.feedback

Since my manifesto was published, the proposals have been subject to fake claims made by Jeremy Corbyn. The only things he has left to offer in this campaign are fake claims, fear and scaremongering. So I want to make a further point clear. This manifesto says that we will come forward with a consultation paper, a government green paper. And that consultation will include an absolute limit on the amount people have to pay for their care costs. So let me reiterate. We are proposing the right funding model for social care. We will make sure nobody has to sell their family home to pay for care.feedback

Nothing has changed from the principles on social care policy that we set out on our manifesto. Just one figure: in 10 years' time, there will be two million more people over the age of 75. Now, our social care system will collapse if we don't do anything about it. I'm not going to bury my head in the sand, I'm not going to play politics with it, which is what Jeremy Corbyn is doing. We have not rewritten the manifesto. The principles on which we have based our social care policy remain absolutely the same.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn wants to duck this reality – and play politics. But there will be 2 million more people over 75 years old in Britain over the next decade alone. Our social care system will collapse unless we make some important decisions now about how we fund it. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high.feedback

There are just 17 days to go until this crucial General Election. Just 11 days after that, the European Union wants the Brexit negotiations to begin. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high. Not someone who is uncertain or unsure, but someone utterly determined to deliver the democratic will of the British people.feedback

The cold hard fact is that if I lose just six seats I will lose this election, and Jeremy Corbyn will be sitting down to negotiate with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. For anyone with any doubts about the importance of this election, the events of the past week should have put them to rest. With the publication of the Labour Party's manifesto on Tuesday, and the launch of my own plan on Thursday, it is clearer than ever just how much is at stake.feedback

The prospect of him walking through the door of Number 10, flanked by John McDonnell and Diane Abbott and propped up by the Liberal Democrat and nationalist parties, should scare us all. And make no mistake, it could happen. The cold hard fact is that if I lose just six seats I will lose this election, and Jeremy Corbyn will be sitting down to negotiate with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. Yet with his manifesto this week, he has demonstrated that he is simply not up to the job of leading Britain through the critical years ahead.feedback

There is only one leader at this election who will put rights and opportunities for ordinary working families first. The choice next month is clear: economic stability and a better deal for workers under my Conservative team, or chaos under Jeremy Corbyn, whose nonsensical policies would trash the economy and destroy jobs. First, while it is important that the voices of workers and consumers should be represented, I can categorically tell you this is not about mandating works councils, or the direct appointment of workers or trade union representatives on boards.feedback

Unlike a coalition of chaos and instability led by Jeremy Corbyn, we are prepared to face up to the big long-term challenges facing this country. The internet has brought a wealth of opportunity but also significant new risks which have evolved faster than society's response to them. We want social media companies to do more to help redress the balance and will take action to make sure they do. These measures will help make Britain the best place in the world to start and run a digital business, and the safest place in the world for people to be online.feedback

We are a party who believes we are trying to ensure we have low taxes rather than the instinct of the Labour Party, which is to put taxes up. As a government, we will go into government with no plans to increase the level of tax. But as I say, what I would want to do, my instinct would be to find ways of reducing tax on working families. But of course in order to do that we need to ensure we've got the strength of economy and keep the economy going, a growing economy.feedback

So far during this campaign, we have learned one thing about Jeremy Corbyn: proud and patriotic working class people in towns and cities across Britain have not deserted the Labour Party - Jeremy Corbyn has deserted them. Millions of people here in the north east of England, and across our country, have loyally given the Labour Party their allegiance for generations. I respect that. We respect that parents and grandparents taught their children and grandchildren that Labour was a party that shared their values and stood up for their community.feedback

That is why, if elected on June 8, I will ensure that the UK continues to spend at least 2 per cent of GDP on defence and that the budget rises every year. Under my leadership the Conservatives will ensure that the brave men and women of our Armed Forces have the equipment and resources they need to keep our country safe – and that we meet our obligations to the world. But a strong military is only possible with a strong economy, and Jeremy Corbyn would put both at risk if he makes it to Downing Street propped up by the Lib Dems and SNP in a coalition of chaos.feedback

Every vote for me and my local candidates is a vote that strengthens our hand in those Brexit negotiations. And just stop for a minute to think what the alternative would be - to risk making Jeremy Corbyn our prime minister. Can you picture it? Jeremy Corbyn, sitting at the negotiating table with the combined might of the European Commission and 27 other European countries ranged against him? I want you to be out there on those streets leaving no stone unturned, no street un-walked down, no door un-knocked on.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn would put both at risk if he makes it to Downing Street propped up by the Lib Dems and SNP in a coalition of chaos. Only a vote for me and my Conservative team will deliver the strong and stable leadership that is vital for our national security.feedback

Tuition fees will remain but the question you have to ask the Labour party is how do they actually pay for all of this they are proposing. I've talked about my personal story [in further education] because many politicians have talked about parity of esteem, but they've not touched FE. Because they've not felt the transformative effect that FE has.feedback

We must make sure that we point out the nonsensical policies that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are putting forward. They simply don't add up. Because they would wreck the economy and render all their policies totally undeliverable.feedback

These negotiations are going to be tough at times. That means they need strong and stable leadership here in the UK sitting around that negotiating table. People must remember this: There will be 27 other European countries on one side of the table and only one person there to stand up for the UK. The question at the general election is who will give that strong and stable leadership: me or Jeremy Corbyn?feedback

I don't take anything for granted and if you look what happened in the last couple of years, we saw the opinion polls got in wrong in the 2015 general election and last year in the referendum and of course Jeremy Corbyn has pointed out he was a 200/1 chance for the Labour leadership. The general election will be won on the day by real people going out and casting real votes. I want to earn the support of the people to strengthen my hand.feedback

If we do not stand up and get this negotiation right we risk the secure and well-paid jobs we want for our children and our children's children too. If we don't get the negotiation right, if we let the bureaucrats of Brussels run over us, we will lose the chance to build a fairer society with real opportunity for all. With me you will get strong and stable leadership and an approach to Brexit that locks in economic growth, jobs for our children and strong finances for the NHS and the country's schools. Or you will get Jeremy Corbyn with a hung parliament and a coalition of chaos.feedback

I am determined not to allow parties like the Liberal Democrats to prosper, because it is in their interests to prop up a Corbyn coalition of chaos so that the Brexit process stalls and they can reopen the battles of the past. We haven't even got through this General Election.feedback

The opposition parties are lining up to prop up [Labour leader] Jeremy Corbyn and disrupt our Brexit negotiations – a recipe for years of drift and division at this crucial time.feedback

I am determined not to allow parties like the Liberal Democrats to prosper, because it is in their interests to prop up a Corbyn coalition of chaos so that the Brexit process stalls and they can reopen the battles of the past. Wherever it says Labour or Liberal Democrat on the ballot, it's a weak, nonsensical Jeremy Corbyn that gets the vote. At the last election, voters here in the south-west were the difference between a strong, majority government and a weak, unstable coalition of Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP.feedback

At this election, people will have a clear choice between five years of strong and strong a stable leadership with me and my team or a coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn. That's what's on offer of course, if you look at the other parties, they're lining up to prop up Jeremy Corbyn – we see it from the Liberal Democrats and we see it from Nicola Sturgeon's Scottish nationalists. What they're doing is they want to disrupt our Brexit negotiations and stop us from taking Britain forward. Every SNP MP that's elected to Westminster puts a step closer Jeremy Corbyn getting into Downing Street.feedback

At this election, people will have a clear choice between five years of strong and stable leadership with me and my team or a coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn. That's what's on offer of course, if you look at the other parties, they're lining up to prop up Jeremy Corbyn. We see it from the Liberal Democrats and we see it from Nicola Sturgeon's Scottish Nationalists.feedback

I know this city is one of the places that people call a 'traditional Labour area'. But here – and in every constituency across the country – it may say Labour on the ballot, but it's Jeremy Corbyn that gets the vote.feedback

An election in which every single vote will count. A really important election for the future of this country. A vote for any other party would be a vote for a weak and failing Jeremy Corbyn propped up by a coalition of chaos which would risk our national future. Make no mistake, it could happen. Remember the opinion polls were wrong in the 2015 general election, they were wrong in the referendum last year. Jeremy Corbyn himself has said he was a 200-1 outsider for the Labour leadership in 2015 and look where that one went. So we must not be complacent and I'm not complacent.feedback

Remember the opinion polls were wrong in the 2015 general election, they were wrong in the referendum, and Jeremy Corbyn himself has said that he was a 200-1 outsider for the Labour leadership in 2015 and look where that got him. We have been working on a long-term solution, we need to stop ducking the issue.feedback

Every vote that is cast for me and the Conservatives will strengthen my hand in the negotiations with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. We've already seen the other parties lining up to prop up Corbyn, we've seen it from the Liberal Democrats, we've seen it from Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP. Brexit isn't just a process, it's an opportunity … to make sure this really is a country that works for everyone and not just the privileged few. But to do that we do need the certainty that this election will bring over the next five years.feedback

I will be asking the British people for a mandate to complete Brexit and to make a success of it. What do we know that the leader of the Labour party, the leader of the Liberal Democrats and the leader of the Scottish nationalists have in common. Corbyn, Farron and Sturgeon want to unite together to divide our country, and we will not let them do it. Every vote for the Conservatives will make it harder for those who want to stop me getting the job done. Every vote for the Conservatives will make me stronger when I negotiate for Britain with the European Union.feedback

People will have a real choice at this election. They will have a choice between a Conservative government that has shown we can build a stronger economy and a Labour party whose economic policy would bankrupt this country.feedback

Or the chaos and disarray of the rest - political parties motivated not by what is best for local areas, but what best for their own partisan political interest, and without a plan for our country or our local communities - just a recipe for chaos and failure. A Labour Party totally out of touch with the concerns of the British people, which ignores the priorities of local communities and instead indulges its own ideological obsessions.feedback

I join [Mr Corbyn] in expressing condolences to the family and friends of little Katie who died so tragically.feedback
