In just three days time, the UK will head to the election polls to decide the fate of Parliament and the country.

And, in the aftermath of the most recent London terrorist attack on Saturday night that claimed the lives of seven people and injured 49 civilians, Jeremy Corbyn is now calling on Theresa May to resign as Prime Minister as a result of her funding cuts to the police force.

Today, the prime minister returned to her campaign and faced questions over cuts to policing and the armed forces.

However, despite being asked several times regarding statistics showing the number of armed police has seen a 19,000 fall in numbers since 2010 when she was appointed home secretary, May dodged the questions in an attempt to focus the discussion on Brexit and her opposition explaining it is 'not the time for learning on the job'.

May's comments come hours after culture secretary Karen Bradley repeatedly avoided answering questions from Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan as to whether numbers of frontline police officers had been slashed since 2010.

According to the BBC, the PM said she had protected counter-terror police budgets in her role as home secretary and was now 'providing funding for an uplift in the number of armed officers' as well as taking care of funding for the police as a whole.

As a result of May's reported funding cuts, the public have taken to Twitter to voice their anger, using the trending hashtag '#CurseTheresaMay'.

Suffice to say, the majority involved May drinking a really bad cup of tea – the worst curse of all for any Brit.
