Len McCluskey wrong to say Labour can not win election - Kezia Dugdale


Mr Corbyn will say: "Where the Tories look to divide, Labour seeks to bring people together".

Issuing a market update this morning, bookmaker William Hill has revealed that betting on the Tories is now outmatching Labour wagers by 10:1.

While many of Labour's policies are popular - among them, renationalizing some rail, energy and utility companies - the party faces hard questions about how it plans to fulfill its pledges without large increases in taxes and government borrowing.

Support for British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party has slipped four percentage points ahead of a June 8 general election, but it still holds a big lead over the opposition Labour Party, according to a YouGov opinion poll for The Times.

Mr McDonnell, a key ally of the Labour leader, said he did not accept anonymous sources any more after a BBC journalist said he had spoken to Labour candidates who did not want help from Mr Corbyn. Mr McCluskey's prediction of 200 seats for Labour suggests a Tory majority of around 80.

The party won 232 seats in the 2015 election.

The £100 savings on water bills would come from stopping the extraction of dividends to shareholders, which have averaged £1.8bn per year over the last ten years, and reducing interest payments on water company debt by £500m per year.

Labour's spending plans would open up a £58 billion "black hole" in the public finances, the Conservatives have warned. "While his figures are a fantasy, it is ordinary working families who will pay".

But the Institute for Fiscal Studies has said it was "genuinely uncertain" whether increases to income tax would raise the £6.4bn Labour has earmarked, adding that they represented a "big increase" for high earners.
