Quiz the leaders: Join the audience for May v Corbyn

Share

Labour is the first of the major parties to publish its manifesto ahead of the June 8 general election, the BBC reported.

The election manifesto for the main opposition party published yesterday confirmed numerous promises in a leaked draft last week.

"Research also shows that children who receive high-quality early learning will have the best life chances".

The "For the Many Not the Few" manifesto was officially launched on Tuesday morning, promising a series of investments in national infrastructure and higher taxes for the rich.

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

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday pledged to hike taxes for 1.3m Brits earning more than £80,000, as he attempts to find the funds for a £50bn spending spree.

Chris Ham, chief executive of health charity The King's Fund, said the extra funds "will go some way to addressing the pressures facing the NHS and reversing the decline in social care services for older and disabled people". Corbyn promised a Labour government would immediately guarantee the rights of European Union citizens in Britain and reject the threat of walking away from Brexit talks.

THE controversial Trident nuclear deterrent would be retained under a Labour government, the party has confirmed in its manifesto.

Ollie Hill, a Labour Party member and Momentum activist, said that the manifesto formed a radical break not only with Conservative policies but also the previous Labour platform.

"I think there's a rumbling, a subterranean rumbling at the moment, where people are saying we want change".

The victory party will be held at the Red Lion pub in Westminster, the same venue where the Labour leader celebrated his leadership victory in 2015.

"While Jeremy Corbyn and Labour retreat into an ideological comfort zone, ducking the hard challenges which lay ahead, I will be straight with people, I won't shy away from the challenges of our time, I will set out how we will tackle them head-on", she said.

Jeremy Corbyn's party are up eight points from last month to 34% with the Conservatives unchanged on 49%.

If Labour ended up with just 200 MPs, it would likely hand the Conservative government a working majority of more than 80.

Most put the party on 30 percent a rise of about five percent from before the election was called.

The Conservatives claimed they were using "made-up numbers".

The ruling party has benefited from a collapse in support for the anti-EU UK Independence Party and hardening rhetoric from the party's leaders on the EU as Brexit negotiations get under way. The Tory campaign, by contrast, is built on one word: "fear".

He added: "Labour will move towards universal childcare, expanding free provision for two, three and- four-year-olds in the next Parliament".

He added: "The function of leadership is to understand the stresses that people face in their daily lives, the frustration, the thwarted ambition, the anger that they face and try to produce policies that make that different".
