Labour manifesto includes fees ban, rent controls and minimum tenancies

Labour has hit its highest poll rating since the General Election was called after launching its radical manifesto.

In comments that will incense and dismay many Labour MPs, Unite leader Len McCluskey spoke out just hours after the launch of the party's election manifesto.

But Mr Corbyn said he would not immediately lower the 45p threshold to include everyone paid more than £80,000, instead favouring a phased approach over the course of the next parliament, which will end in 2022. People like me are always optimistic. things can happen.

She told BBC Radio Scotland: "I hope he is wrong, I want to see a Labour government across the whole of the United Kingdom, that's what I'm spending every waking moment of my day campaigning for". "I think it would be extraordinary".

When the journalist said he had spoken to candidates who did not want to be associated with Mr Corbyn, Mr McDonnell said: "I don't accept anonymous sources any more - name a name".

Many newspapers have chose to give their readers a break from election news on the front pages on Saturday, with the latest twist in the Julian Assange story making the majority of the headlines.

Yesterday's official publishing of the Labour Party Manifesto, has done little to convince political punters that Jeremy Corbyn is the man to back for the 2017 UK General Election (8 June).

Britain, Mr. Corbyn said at his manifesto announcement at the University of Bradford, had been "run for the rich, the elite and the vested interests", adding: "They have benefited from tax cuts and bumper salaries while millions have struggled".

The Tory campaign, by contrast, is built on one word: "fear".

However both polls showed the Tories to have a commanding lead in the June 8 vote.

The latest opinion polls have Labour around 30% or more with the Conservatives above 40%.

Mr McCluskey listed the Labour leader's portrayal in the media as a major factor which has contributed to his disparaged campaign.

Mrs May made her first appearance on Facebook Live on Monday, but Jeremy Corbyn ambushed the broadcast with a question, challenging the Prime Minister to a live debate.
