Who is the best leader in Britain? Vote for YOUR favourite party leader – Express poll

In a snap election, Theresa May’s Tories and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party would be neck and neck with 24 percent each, according to a recent poll by YouGov. Mrs May’s leadership and her failure to get a Brexit deal over the line has seen support for her party plummet. And Mr Corbyn has come under fire from both Remainers and Leavers over his confusing Brexit stance.

The two leaders are currently working together in joint talks in a bid to break the Brexit deadlock.

Meanwhile, Nigel Farage’s brand new Brexit Party is in third place with 18 percent of votes.

It comes after leading Brexiteer Mr Farage confirmed he will stand in the next general election.

He told LBC: “I’m going to have to of course. It’s a duty. We cannot ever allow again a great democratic exercise like this to be railroaded aside by career politicians of the Labour and Tory parties.”

Vince Cable’s Lib Dems are in fourth place with 16 percent, the poll found.

But Mr Cable’s departure could be imminent as the Lib Dem leader previously pledged to stand down in May.

The Greens, jointly led by Sian Berry and Jonathan Bartley, are in fifth place with seven percent of votes.

Change UK, which started out as The Independent Group, trail behind with just two percent.

The pro-Remain party, whose interim leader is Heidi Allen, was set up earlier this year by a group of breakaway Labour and Tory MPs.

Mr Farage’s former party Ukip, which is now led by Gerard Batten, is also on two percent.

The party has lurched to the right under Mr Batten, who appointed controversial activist Tommy Robinson as an adviser.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has renewed calls for Scottish independence over Brexit, claiming Scotland does not want to leave the EU.

YouGov polled 2,212 British adults on May 8-9.
