Poll gives Conservatives big lead ahead of June election

But that's it. World War I was illegitimate, he suggested.

"The fact is the war on terror, which has driven these interventions, has not succeeded".

Delivering a keynote speech on the party's approach to security and foreign affairs, Mr Corbyn sought to silence critics who have accused the Labour leader of being weak on defence.

"But that is very far from the kind of unilateral wars and interventions that have nearly become routine in recent times".

Labour says it will go ahead with the renewal of the Trident submarine fleet as planned by the current government even though Mr Corbyn, a lifelong opponent of nuclear weapons, has made clear that he would never authorise their use.

Mrs May said the leaked draft of Labour's General Election manifesto was a "multibillion-pound ideological wish list of deliverable promises" with a funding shortfall estimated to be "at least £30 billion".

"The crucial thing is that there is a sharp distinction between a Government that is willing to stand up for this country, which is willing to make sure this country is properly defended and a Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn that would simply chuck away our ability to defend ourselves".

Asked on Channel 4 whether he was still a member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the Labour leader said: "I have been a member all my life ..." "Would you order the indiscriminate killing of millions of people?"

Britain's security is better guaranteed by Corbyn, a man who can say No, than by Tory White House toadies.

Mr Corbyn said that in office, Labour would work to halt the "drift to conflict" with Russian Federation while maintaining its opposition to human rights abuses by Moscow.

Corbyn said that a Labour government would seek greater global cooperation to end the conflict in Syria and "work to halt the drift to confrontation with Russia. winding down tensions on the Russia-NATO border".

The Labour leader said he would honor Britain's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitment to spend 2 percent of its GDP on defense.

"From stagnant pay and worsening conditions to poor housing, the morale of our service personnel and veterans is at rock bottom".

However, those of us who looked at Corbyn's beard and tweeds, and optimistically presumed the era of Labour he'd want to set the time machine for would be "1948 - stirring and noble creation..."
