As Britons brace themselves for the June 8 election, the debate has evolved from “who” will be championing Brexit to “what kind” of country Britain once it leaves the EU. Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn hold polar-opposite views on how the country should be led into the future. And although it was the prime minister herself who called the snap election as a referendum on her leadership, there is still a risk that voters are souring on her mantra of being a “strong and stable” leader for Britain. Recent polls put the Conservative Party still on track to win, but it could fall well short of the landslide victory that Prime Minister May had been hoping for.
