General election 2017: Len McCluskey 'can't see Labour winning'

Irune Rengel | 28 May, 2017, 20:59

LABOUR launched their £50 billion manifesto yesterday with plans to boost the minimum wage, renationalise Royal Mail, and hike taxes for the 1.3 million people earning more than £80,000 a year.

"While Labour are making some specific and targeted propositions that could boost the growth prospects of small- and medium-sized firms, these will be largely eclipsed by their proposals for higher personal and business taxes in the eyes of business leaders around the United Kingdom".

"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.

Labour's pledge to increase school funding was welcomed by the National Association of Head Teachers.

The launch came just a week after a draft version of the document was leaked to the national press, revealing Labour's plans to introduce a flexible retirement age.

And early yesterday morning two more men were arrested in Withington. "Everyone stopped and turned around", she said. The Manchester police activity came as armed police were deployed on Britain's rail network for the first time ever.

"The reality, of course, is that Labour has launched their manifesto - a fantastic manifesto, a manifesto for workers, for ordinary working people and a manifesto which will change Britain for the better". Prime Minister Theresa May called the snap vote, citing the need to strengthen her hand for Brexit talks, and polls show her Conservatives handing Labour its worst defeat since at least 1983.

Corbyn said his manifesto, which also included scrapping university tuition fees and ending cuts to the National Health Service, was costed and accused the Conservatives of stepping back in time by backing fox hunting and new selective schools.

"Although this is a short election campaign, businesses have been deluged with policy proposals, and it is a criticism of politicians of all parties that pledges have been made with seemingly little thought of the consequences", said Stephen Martin, director general of the Institute of Directors.

Mr Corbyn said people want a country "run for the many, not the few" as he said the last seven years have seen "our people live through the opposite".

The union leader told Politico that a Labour victory on 8 June would be "extraordinary" given the state of the party and criticism of it in the media.

At the Tehran press conference, Rouhani also defended Iran's ballistic missile program, something heavily criticised by Trump's new administration.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: "Labour will rebalance our economy so that the many are no longer ripped off by the wealthy and powerful few".

On the chances of a Labour victory, Mr McCluskey said: "In terms of the imagery of Jeremy, that's a huge task".

David Gauke, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said Labour's "nonsensical" plans "simply don't add up" and would mean "more borrowing and debt". "A blueprint of what Britain could be and a pledge of the difference a Labour government can make".

A slew of nationalizations in the rail, water and energy industries capped Labour's pitch with Corbyn offering a "radical and responsible" plan to contrast with May's oft-repeated selling point of "strong and stable" leadership.
