  • Labour manifesto includes fees ban, rent controls and minimum tenancies

The leader of Britain's biggest workers' union has said he couldn't see the opposition Labour Party winning a June 8 parliamentary election, a remarkable statement from one of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's most powerful supporters. "I think it would be extraordinary", McCluskey was quoted as saying.

Mr Corbyn, who has been boosted by two opinion polls showing Labour gaining ground on the Conservatives ahead of the General Election, responded this morning.

There is a £58 billion black hole in Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto - and it will be paid for by every single family in the country with higher taxes and more debt. 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 Labour Party campaign has outshone the Tories' comfortably". Diane Abbott, who sent her son to a private school.

Jeremy Corbyn's party says that tenants now spend some £9.6 billion a year on homes that can be classed as "non-decent". People like me are always optimistic. things can happen.

Questioned about policy issues, Mr Gething said Labour was "appalled" that the Conservatives were planning to abandon the "triple lock" guarantee on pensions, and claimed working people were worse off under the Tories. Mr McCluskey's prediction of 200 seats for Labour suggests a Tory majority of around 80.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell, speaking to supporters at a General Election campaign event in Lincoln, said: "We've got a lot of work to do, we know the polls at the moment, we know what they're like". You've got the guy.

UK Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn pledged to raise taxes on businesses and the wealthy to pour more money into health, education and infrastructure.

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