All quotes by Jeremy Corbyn on Conservative and Unionist Party

I can still be Prime Minister. This is still on. Absolutely. Theresa May has been to the Palace. She's attempting to form a government. I don't think Theresa May and this government have any credibility. The Prime Minister called this election on the basis she would need a stronger mandate to negotiate Brexit.feedback

I'd like to thank all our members and supporters who have worked so hard on this campaign, from door knocking to social media, and to everyone who voted for a manifesto which offers real change for our country. Whatever the final result, we have already changed the face of British politics. There is a very large question mark over whether the Tories will want Theresa May fighting the next election if the exit poll proves to be correct.feedback

Indeed I would, because there's been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this who are very worried that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and is now saying that we have a problem - yes, we do have a problem, we should never have cut the police numbers. We've got an election on Thursday and that's perhaps the best opportunity to deal with it. Theresa May responsible for security failures of London Bridge, Manchester, Westminster Bridge. Should be resigning not seeking re-election.feedback

You cannot protect the public on the cheap. The police and security services must get the resources they need, not 20,000 police cuts. Theresa May was warned by the Police Federation but she accused them of 'crying wolf'. We do need to have some difficult conversations, starting with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states that have funded and fuelled extremist ideology. It is no good Theresa May suppressing a report into the foreign funding of extremist groups. We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including Isis, here and in the Middle East.feedback

The mass murderers who brought terror to our streets in London and Manchester want our election to be halted.feedback

Our priority must be public safety and I will take whatever action is necessary and effective to protect the security of our people and our country. That includes full authority for the police to use whatever force is necessary to protect and save life as they did last night, as they did in Westminster in March.

Theresa May says no deal is better than a bad deal. Let's be clear: no deal is in fact a bad deal. It is the worst of all deals because it would leave us with World Trade Organisation tariffs and restrictions instead of the access to European markets we need. That would mean slapping tariffs on the goods we export – an extra 10% on cars – with the risk that key manufacturers would leave for the European mainland, taking skilled jobs with them.feedback

We know the three Tories in whose hands Theresa May has placed our national future - David Davis, Boris Johnson and Liam Fox. Now you know I don't do personal attacks, so let me just say that in Labour's Brexit team, there is no one who has fibbed to the British people about spending an extra £350 million a week on the NHS because of Brexit, and nobody who has promised to use Brexit to slash workers' rights or slash tax for big corporations in a continental race to the bottom.feedback

I never met the IRA. I obviously did meet people from Sinn Fein as indeed I met people from other organisations, and I always made the point that there had to be a dialogue and a peace process. We've had Theresa May promising in three elections to make cuts to immigration. I'm making no promises on that.feedback

Theresa May, why not debate me? The public deserves to see a debate between the only two people who could form the next government.feedback

This is about having a health service for the many. In the past seven years the Tories have driven our National Health Service into crisis. A&E departments are struggling to cope. Waiting lists are soaring and, and as we saw last week, Tory cuts have exposed patient services to cyber attack. Imagine what would happen to the NHS if the Conservatives under Theresa May were to have another five years in power. It would be unrecognisable: a national health service in name, cut back, broken up and plundered by private corporations. Only Labour will put the NHS back on its feet.feedback

I'm not going to put any figures on it, Theresa May has done that for, this is now the third General Election she's promised figures none of which she's come anywhere near to achieving. Clearly the free movement ends when we leave the European Union but there will be managed migration and it will be fair. There will be a strategic defence review as all governments have done when they come in to office which will look at all aspects of our defence strategy. I consider myself well paid for what I do and I am wanting to say to everyone who's well off, make your contribution to our society.feedback

If you vote for Theresa May, you get a coalition of risk and uncertainty with Donald Trump.feedback

Strength is holding on to what you believe in. Standing up for the many against the few means a struggle against the odds. Looking out for the few is easy; winning for the many is hard. I have a message for Theresa May: If you feel the need to go on about what a great leader you are, then show it by debating with me in this election campaign. We are for the many, you're for the few. No, because I'm busy out campaigning to win the General Election on June 8.feedback

Theresa May is hiding from the public. She won't take part in TV debates and she won't talk to voters. Refusing to debate Labour in this election isn't a sign of strength, it's a sign of weakness. What is she afraid of? Voters deserve to know what political parties are offering. We are setting out our plans to rebuild and transform Britain.feedback

By refusing to debate, Theresa May expects to get the job without an interview. No one else gets a job without one, so why should she?feedback

But where Theresa May divides, Labour will unite our four nations. A Labour government will make St George's Day - England's national day and Shakespeare's birthday - a public holiday, along with St David's Day, St Andrew's Day and St Patrick's Day. But they will also be a chance to celebrate the national cultures of our proud nations in our diversity and mutual respect. The next Labour government will give workers the break they deserve and bring our country closer together.feedback

Theresa May will try to say that this is an election about Brexit while ignoring her government's failure and the issues that affect people's lives every day.feedback

Elections and democracy are about public debate. So it's rather strange that only a couple of hours after calling for a general election, the prime minister is saying she's not going to take part in TV debates. Well, I say to Theresa May, who said this election was about leadership, come on and show some. Let's have the debates. It's what democracy needs and the British people deserve.feedback
