>> Kicking off the final day of campaigning with a visit to London's biggest meat market. But, the British prime minister greeted by some butchers with boos, and cheers of Vote Labour.>> Boo!>> Vote Labour!>> May called Thursday's snap election in a bid to strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations.
But her campaign has struggled in recent weeks, overshadowed by two militant attacks which have turned the focus sharply on security. Reuters UK political correspondent, William James, is on Theresa May's campaign plane.>> At this stage, she wanted to be talking about Brexit and making people think this is a choice between Jeremy Corbin and her as Prime Minister.
Instead, she's been forced into talking about human rights laws, terrorism, the security services, and Britain's response to the recent terror attacks.>>
May's main rival, opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbin, starting his morning in the Scottish city of Glasgow. Once written off by many as a no hoper leading his party to it's worst ever election defeat, the Socialist deemed to have run a strong campaign.
Indeed, Theresa May's lead has slipped from 20 points back in April. Latest polls put her party anywhere between 12 to 1 point ahead.>> Three times today on the plane, she was asked how many seats are you going to win? How many do you need to win to make the decision to call an election a success?
Every single time, she gave the same answer. We've heard it on the campaign trail before. It's, there's only one poll that counts, and that's the poll on Thursday. So she's not giving anything away about what she expects. But we know from the opinion polls that the race is a lot tighter than it was expected.
>> The PM is still expected to win. But if she fails to handsomely beat the 12-seat majority her predecessor David Cameron secured in 2015, her electoral gamble will have failed. And her authority, both within her party and the EU, will be undermined.
