General Elction 2017: Labour to publish manifesto today

Rita Gibson | 16 May, 2017, 12:54

"Our manifesto spells out how - with a programme that is radical and responsible", he said in a statement.

Mr Corbyn's plan, a draft of which was leaked to The Telegraph last week, would take Britain back to the 1970s with renationalisation of the railways, energy companies and the Royal Mail.

Mr Corbyn told the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) conference in Liverpool that he understood the anger of nurses who made clear in a poll this weekend they are ready to stage a summer of protests across the United Kingdom over pay.

The launch comes as Labour came under fire for hiring former hardline Communist and chairman of the Stop The War Coalition, Andrew Murray, to help with Mr Corbyn's election campaign.

People earning £80,000 a year will face a tax rise, with speculation the threshold on the top rate of tax could come down.

Labour has said the rise would fund increased investment in the state-run National Health Service (NHS) and would only affect five percent of earners.

"It's a programme that will reverse our national priorities to put the interests of the many first", Corbyn is expected to say.

It means Theresa May is on course to be elected as prime minister when the country votes on June 8.

Nurses had suffered cuts in the value of their pay over recent years, said Mr Corbyn, adding: "We will not put you in that position".

Britain's opposition Labour Party pledged to raise taxes on the well-off, renationalise key industries and end austerity in its manifesto on Tuesday, presenting voters with their starkest choice in decades in next month's election.

"This is a programme of hope".

The Labour manifesto goes on to remind readers of the party's history with LGBTI issues: 'Labour has a proud record championing the fight for GBLT equality. The Tory campaign, by contrast, is built on one word: fear.

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour's shadow health secretary, said: 'Clinicians, experts and patients have all been calling for a significant cash boost to the NHS.

Dr Porter said that one indicator of "cutting investment to the bone" was the fact that the NHS was now bearing the brunt of cyber-attacks due to reliance on obsolete software.

He said: "His economic ideas are nonsensical, his views on national security indefensible and he'd make a total mess of the Brexit negotiations".

"It's ordinary working people who will pay for the chaos of Corbyn", he said.
