Poll boost for Jeremy Corbyn as Labour slashes Tory general election lead


Jeremy Corbyn and his team will take comfort in the poll, which suggests that the Labour vote is solidifying as the campaign advances.

And, in a comment that will infuriate many Labour activists and MPs, Mr McCluskey said: "I believe that if Labour can hold on to 200 seats or so it will be a successful campaign".

The 128-page document dedicates just one page to the Private Rented Sector, alongside pages for home ownership and council and social tenants.

Labour hit back accusing the Conservatives of peddling "false claims" in order to divert attention from their own record on the economy.

United Kingdom opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will on Tuesday unveil a "radical and responsible" plan for government vowing it will change the country and govern "for the many not the few", the media reported.

The General Election could determine if the United Kingdom continues to exist, Kezia Dugdale warned, as she urged people in Scotland to reject the nationalist politics offered by the SNP and the Conservatives.

We're not going to repeat them here, but suffice to say the report is extremely slanted in a direction that we honestly struggle to recognise following years of following JME's work (and social media output).

However, the Unite leader did not rule out victory completely, saying Labour was "fighting for every vote" and praising Mr Corbyn's performance in the campaign.

Target of "eliminating the government's deficit on day-to-day spending within five years".

The clip he posted of the intervention to his Facebook page was liked nearly 60,000 times, more than any post by any other party or leader on Facebook since the election was called on April 18.
