The final prime minister’s questions session of this parliament, currently under way, is dominated by electoral slogans in the run-up to the June 8 vote.

Prime minister Theresa May repeatedly referred to the “coalition of chaos” that the Tories claim would be needed to support a Labour government, adding that Jeremy Corbyn is “not fit” for the job.

“Every vote for him is a vote for a chaotic Brexit,” she said. “Every vote for me is a vote for strengthening our hand for the best deal for Britain… a strong economy with benefits felt by everyone.”

For his part, Mr Corbyn said the Conservatives were “strong against the weak, and weak against the strong.”
