UK Labour leader accuses Theresa May of 'pandering' to Trump

Labour will "strive to reduce not increase global tensions, and give new momentum to talks on non-proliferation and disarmament", Ms Thornberry said.

The Green Party were the third most popular party on Twitter and Facebook in terms of engagement, with posts about the party's local election successes and the collapse of Ukip garnering the most likes and shares across both platforms.
