Corbyn's auto drives over BBC cameraman's foot

Kenny Thornton | 12 May, 2017, 10:35

"He didn't mention Jeremy Corbyn!" said Wayne McCallum, a local party supporter who described himself as a "real socialist".

In an effort to bridge party divides over Trident, it commits Labour to the nuclear deterrent, but in a nod to Mr Corbyn's opposition to the weapons it says "any prime minister should be extremely cautious about ordering the use of weapons of mass destruction which would result in the indiscriminate killing of millions of innocent civilians".

Mr Brown said: "Ask yourself, is the National Health Service safe with the Conservative candidates, or the Ukip candidates, or the Liberal candidates in Coventry?".

'I say to you, the National Health Service is safe only in the hands of Labour people who will fight every day'.

He also urged Mrs May to give straight answers on questions on her domestic policy, rather than just "slogans and sound bites".

Giles Wooltorton's left foot was run over by the rear left wheel of the vehicle the Labour leader was travelling in, and he received treatment from an ambulance crew at the scene before being taken away.

'But as Geoffrey (Robinson) has just said, we don't know what her hand is - she is not telling us what her hand is in these negotiations.

The move provoked anger among top US civil rights groups and Democratic lawmakers, who called it a voter suppression tactic. He has vowed since the start of his administration to investigate voter fraud , a process that has been delayed for months.

'She wants a free hand - she wants us to write her a blank cheque'.

A senior Labour source said suggestions the manifesto was leaked by Mr Corbyn's team were "categorically and completely untrue".

In a statement the broadcaster said: "An experienced BBC cameraman has been injured while filming at the Labour Party manifesto meeting".

He was later taken by ambulance to a London hospital, according to a Reuters photographer.

A separate source denied the leak had come from party headquarters and insisted no one there had the manifesto.

Brown, a key figure in the Labour movement that won three elections between 1997 and 2005 under Tony Blair, made his first political intervention ahead of a June 8 vote which is predicted to see Theresa May's center-right Conservatives ease to victory.

There were also proposals for a new Ministry of Labour to deliver investment in enforcing workers' rights and zero hour contracts will be outlawed.
