Jeremy Corbyn has vowed to push Theresa May out of power and vote down the Queen's Speech as he moves to progress his plans for government. 

The Labour leader made the comments in an interview with The Sunday Mirror.

Corbyn told the newspaper he would seek to frustrate the Prime Minister's attempts to form a government by amending the Queen's Speech in order to "vote it down."

In the wake of the election, Corbyn appears to be playing safe, for Emily Thornberry and John McDonnell have both indicated Blairite MPs would not be invited to join the shadow cabinet for fear of potentially dividing the party. 

This declaration comes as a new poll by Survation shows the Labour party has edged ahead of the Tories by six points - the first time Corbyn has led Theresa May since she became Prime Minister last July.
