British PM May says she does not predict election results

"We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to terror networks, including Isis, here and in the Middle East", Corbyn said.

General Election campaigning is returning at full throttle amid an escalating war of words over terrorism in the wake of the London Bridge attack.

In a speech in Carlisle a day after the terror attack at London Bridge, the Labour leader vowed to take "whatever action is necessary and effective" to preserve public safety.

Campaigning by most parties for the general election in Cambridge will, along with the rest of the United Kingdom, be suspended today (Sunday, June 4) in light of the June 3 terrorist attack in London.

The Labour leader told ITV reporter Rachel Younger that the PM should resign over her record.

Mr Corbyn replied: "The primary responsibility for this lies with those who did it, they killed people in cold blood in a disgusting and appalling way and there's no words other than total condemnation".

Her tenure at the Home Office saw 20,000 fewer police officers on the country's streets as a result of government cuts.

Beyond security, May said that Corbyn had also failed to answer "basic questions" on Brexit, on issues including customs union membership and future immigration policy.

"It's also very important to have a message of bringing communities together and that is something I always give very strongly at all of my events".

Jeremy Corbyn has turned his fire on Theresa May's record on dealing with the terror threat, accusing her of denying resources to the police and security services and suppressing a report believed to make sensitive allegations about Saudi funding of extremists.

Speaking to the ABC, Inderjeet Parmar, a professor of worldwide politics at the City University of London, doubled down on Mr Corbyn's suggestion that foreign policy was related to repeated terrorism attacks in the West.

"The criticisms that were made of me were I think wrong and unfair and indeed the BBC Trust upheld an objection on this".

"That is a reasonable and proportionate response, as happened in Westminster".
