Some notable political interventions this........>

UK: Some notable political interventions this morning that display just how
polarising the election is. Usually parties would be unveiling major figures'
endorsements around this time in the campaign. Instead, both major parties are
contending with senior figures advocating votes against them, one over Brexit
differences, the other over antisemitism.
- Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis states in a Times article that "the overwhelming
majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety" at the prospect of a Labour
gov't coming to power under Jeremy Corbyn for his lack of action in tackling
antisemitism within the party, arguing "a new poison - sanctioned from the very
top - had taken root".
- For the Conservatives, party grandee and former leadership challenger Michael
Heseltine advocated Con supporters to vote for the Lib Dems or former Con
independents as Brexit is "overarching issue at stake" and he "can't support
people who are going to make this country poorer and less influential".
- Comes a day after former PM Tony Blair lambasts both parties spending plans,
and opinion polls showing a tightening race.
