Britain's Labour announces 'radical' election manifesto

Britain's Labour announces 'radical' election manifesto

"Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party: People want a country run for the many not the few...for the last seven years our people have lived through the opposite; a Britain run for the rich, the elite and the vested interest", he said.

Their meeting was followed by the launch of a new pro-Corbyn online campaign, "Grime4Corbyn". But he did not appear to be expecting a Labour government: "The scale of the task is huge".

But asked about his comment on Wednesday morning, he said: "I am now full of optimism".

Ruth Davison, executive director of public impact at the National Housing Federation, said: "The Labour Party are right to recognise the links between housing, infrastructure and construction skills", she said.

The ballot on June 8 is "no ordinary election", Ms Dugdale said, saying the result would determine the direction the UK takes for years to come and could even "determine whether there is a United Kingdom at all".

A Labour government in United Kingdom would remove worldwide students from the immigration numbers, a key demand from campaigners who believe their inclusion in the numbers has contributed to an unwelcoming atmosphere, which has been partly responsible for the sharp decline in Indian students in the country.

"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".

One bookmaker has really bought into the policies outlined in today's manifesto and obviously believe it can attract voters back to the Labour Party as they've cut Jeremy Corbyn's odds of being Prime Minister following the election to just 5/1. "I think it would be extraordinary". We are getting constant feedback from our members and there's been an incredible response, a very positive response.

The document shows "what Britain could be and a pledge of the difference a Labour government can and will make", he said at the launch of the manifesto in Bradford.

We pushed Labour on this and they told us the commitment they are making is to have debt falling "as a percentage of (trend) GDP".

Despite supporting the retention of Trident, the manifesto did set out Labour's commitment to furthering the UK's part in complying with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, an worldwide agreement with the objective of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and ultimately achieving the goal of nuclear disarmament.

"There is everything to play for now and we'll be fighting for every single vote".

"The reality is that in the vast majority of seats across Scotland's central belt it is the Labour Party that stands a very strong second to the SNP".

Corbyn has said he would stay as party leader whether he won or lost and the BBC has reported that he could remain at the helm if he equals the 30.4% vote share that Ed Miliband got in 2015.

"I think it's going to be hard because of the media bias to break that, but you never know".

However, he suggested there were some positives, such as the fact that "massive, massive crowds" were turning out to Corbyn's rallies.

A chastened McCluskey, whose union's support and money has been key in propping up Corbyn, issued a statement on Wednesday claiming his words to Politico were taken out of context.
