Prime Minister Theresa May at Neasden Temple

The leaders suspended the campaign after the London Bridge attack, in which seven people died. But Mrs May confirmed the election would go ahead as planned on Thursday.
Downing Street sources said she would deliver a speech as full campaigning restarted, pledging the “leadership” needed to keep the country secure from terrorism, strike a Brexit deal, and manage the economy.
Just after the COBRA meet on Sunday, she called for new measures to tackle extremism, including online, saying in a speech outside No 10 that “enough is enough”.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will focus on budget cuts which affected the social public services including policing.

He also tried to counter perceptions that he is soft on security, including his earlier stance on shoot to kill, which he questioned days after the Paris attack at the Bataclan.

Corbyn  said, if he were prime minister he would take “whatever action is necessary and effective” to protect the public.

“Those who wish to harm our people, divide our communities and attack our democracy will not succeed,” he added. “We will stand together to defend our common values of solidarity, humanity and justice, and will not allow terrorists to derail our democratic process.”
