Theresa May accuses Jeremy Corbyn of claiming ‘ terror attacks in Britain are our own fault’ : i News

Theresa May accused Jeremy Corbyn of not being “up to the job” after he linked the Manchester suicide bombing to British military action abroad. She led Conservative attacks on the Labour leader as the election campaign resumed on an acrimonious note after a three-day pause.
