Labour's Corbyn Launches Manifesto 'For The Many'

Labour's Corbyn Launches Manifesto 'For The Many'

"It will lead us through Brexit while putting the preservation of jobs first", he said of the manifesto, appearing in front of Labour's election slogan: "For the many, not the few".

The manifesto also included commitments to nationalising the railways, and bringing Royal Mail, water and energy back into public ownership.

Labour is now lagging May's Conservatives by as much as 20 percentage points in what has been turned into a presidential-style campaign and faces the loss of dozens of seats.

"If you are earning at the very top end I think it is reasonable that you make a slightly larger contribution to our society's needs", he said.

Mr Hammond said: "There is a £58bn black hole in Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto". "We've got half a million members, the biggest political party in Europe, out there campaigning and Labour MPs right the way across the political spectrum in the Parliamentary Labour Party working together for a Labour government", he insisted. "It will mean that Theresa May will have had an election, will have increased her majority but not dramatically", he said.

However, senior Tories have warned that the surge in support for Labour shows that voters should not take a Conservative victory for granted.

For McCluskey, success would be holding on to 200 seats, he told Politico.




Mrs May responded: "From what I see, it is a very long wish list, a whole lot of promises, but if you look at it, it doesn't add up".

Local Labour campaigner Joe Ashton, 29, said the manifesto set the party apart from others.

The £100 savings on water bills would come from stopping the extraction of dividends to shareholders, which have averaged £1.8bn per year over the last ten years, and reducing interest payments on water company debt by £500m per year.

Earnings of more than £80,000 would be taxed at 45 percent, while those of over £123,000, or $159,000, would face a 50 percent rate.

"We should also bear in mind the drip-drip effects of the Tory [Conservative] press on moulding readers' reception of Labour policies".

BRITAIN'S main opposition Labor Party appealed to voters yesterday with promises to increase the minimum wage, boost spending on health, education and infrastructure, nationalize key industries and pay for it all by raising taxes on high earners. "Labour's mission, over the next five years, is to change all that".
