UK Could Rejoin The EU If Voters Overturn Brexit, Says Tajani

Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn hit the election campaign trail Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn hit the election campaign trail 01:25

Guy Verhofstadt said Theresa May's decision to call a poll on 8 June - having previously said she would not go to the country before the end of the parliament in 2020 - appeared to have been driven by political opportunism.

No doubt she will be pressed during the campaign to tell her supporters more clearly what they are voting for; but for the same reasons she chose to call an election, May will likely demur. "I'm out there taking my message to people up and down this country, and that's what I believe is important".

"This must be at the top of Theresa May's hitlist of constituencies to win from Labour to boost her majority", said Simon Lee, senior politics lecturer at the University of Hull.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn has said Labour was "gaining a huge amount of ground" on the Conservatives in the battle to win the general election.

On Thursday, she said she plans to stick to her pledge to reduce annual net migration to below 100,000 a year.

The Labour party has been riven by divisions over its leader Jeremy Corbyn and Brexit, while May's commitment to a clean break with the European Union has undermined support for the eurosceptic UK Independence Party.

Following his first keynote speech of the general election campaign, the Labour leader was asked whether he was considering or would rule out following the Liberal Democrats in backing a second vote on the exit deal.

Alibaba reveals $6 billion share buyback as misses EPS forecast
The Chinese business accounts for 67% of Alibaba's revenue, or $3.7bn - a 41% rise on the same period past year . Initially, Alibaba shares fell as much as 5.6% to $114 in NY , the biggest intraday drop in nearly a year.

Guy Verhofstadt, the Parliament's Brexit coordinator, dismissed Ms May's claim that an election was needed to enable her to secure a better deal with the European Union as "nonsensical".

If Britain leaves the EU as planned in 2019, there could be a further two- or three-year transition period before the 2022 election, during which the United Kingdom might remain in the single market and customs union - and maintain free movement - while it negotiates a future trade deal.

Despite polls putting Labour as many as 21 points behind the Tories, he insisted the election result was not a "foregone conclusion", declaring: "Things can, and they will, change".

May's justification for calling an early election - that the current parliamentary opposition could block Brexit - is nonsense. Has Theresa May hastened the dying day of the Labour Party or brought forward its salvation?

"At this election, people are going to have a very clear choice", she said.

Philip Dunne, Owen Paterson, Daniel Kawczynski, Lucy Allan, Mark Pritchard, and Glyn Davies, all voted with the government to abandon the fixed-term parliament for 2015-20, and instead hold a general election on June 8.
