Jeremy Corbyn attacked the #Government's record on dealing with the cost of living crisis during the final Prime Minister's Questions before the election.

The Leader of the Opposition [VIDEO] poured scorn on the Conservatives by referring to them as 'a party that looks after the richest in society.'

He added: 'The Conservatives are strong against the weakest people in society and weak against the strongest.

'This #General Election will be a choice between a Conservative government for the few and a Labour government that will stand up for the many.'

'A coalition of chaos'

But Prime Minister Theresa May hit back at the Labour leader, saying: 'I agree with him that the choice is very clear at this election.

'Every vote for him is a vote for a chaotic Brexit that will affect jobs and businesses and every vote for me is an opportunity to strengthen this country's hand in upcoming negotiations to leave the EU.'

'Every vote for me is for a strong economy where the benefits will be felt up and down the country and for strong national leadership developing a better future for this country.'

'Every vote for him is for a coalition of chaos and a car crash economy.'

But Mr. Corbyn struggled at times to get his points across to the Conservative leader as Tory MPs howled at him every time he tried to ask her a question.

Despite this, the Labour leader attacked Mrs May's position on refusing to answer questions from the public in a TV debate.

He presented her with questions members of the public have emailed him with.

His first question was from Christopher, who he said was worried about wages rising by only 1 per cent.

He added: 'Where is his share in the stronger economy she talks about?'

'Tories only slash taxes for the rich'

But the Tory leader accused Mr. Corbyn of failing to take a stand for this country by refusing to kill the leader of ISIS at the weekend.

She quoted the latest NHS wage figures, which suggest workers will experience a 4 per cent increase.

She added: 'What I can say to Christopher is: does he want strong and stable leadership or a Labour Party willing to crash public services?'

However, the Leader of the Opposition said the Tories only slash taxes for the rich and hold everyone else's pay back.

He said a man called Andy was worried his 3 children could not afford to buy a house.

He accused the Government of causing building levels to fall to their lowest numbers since the 1920s.

Mrs May said her party was delivering for ordinary working families by building more council housing than the last Labour government did, which saw purchasing power fall by 45 per cent.

'Many people want what is rightfully theirs'

Both the Labour leader and SNP leader, Angus Robertson, ganged up on the Conservative Prime Minister over pensions.

Mr. Corbyn said a lady called Maurine 'writes with a heavy heart that she will not be receiving her pension until the age of 66. Many people want what is rightfully theirs.'

The Prime Minister said pensioners are over £2000 a year better off under a Conservative government, as opposed to the last Labour government, which increased pensions by 75p a year.

The SNP leader asked her if she will commit to providing a triple-lock on pensions in the Conservative Party manifesto.

Mrs May said that it is only under a Tory government where pensioners will experience a rise in pay.

However, Mr. Robertson said the Prime Minister failed to deliver a simple answer.

He added: 'This Tory Prime Minister plans to ditch the triple lock.

'She is creating greater pension inequality for women. You cannot trust this Prime Minister on your pension.'

The Tory leader said pension inequality for women in the future will improve under her government.

Mrs May did receive praise from some of her Tory colleagues.

The Conservative MP for Bath, Ben Howlett, said the West of England has seen increased levels of investment.

The Tory MP for Colne Valley, Jason McCartney, said it was Labour, not the Conservatives, that put the NHS at risk with their 'disastrous PFI deals.'

Prime Minister's Questions will return after the general election on June 8th.
