UK parties show stark policy differences as polls narrow

With the opinion poll gap narrowing ahead of the U.K.'s general election June 8, the differences between the policy offerings of the two main parties could hardly be more stark.

The governing Conservatives, who have seen their poll lead shrink, promise to cut corporate taxes and reduce net migration, while Labour, gaining ground under left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn, want to launch a £250 billion infrastructure spending program and boost taxes on high earners to pay for increased health spending.
