Labour gains eight points in new poll, narrowing Conservative lead

Guided by the strapline "For The Many: Not The Few", Corbyn's manifesto seeks to impose £50 billion in annual tax rises for top United Kingdom earners (+ £80,000 per year), combined with a return to nationalising United Kingdom civic services such as the Royal Mail, National Grid and transport sectors.

A manifesto is when a party sets out its stall, but the policies can also come to define it for years to come - whether it was the first minimum wage in 1997 or the "longest suicide note in history" back in 1983.

Opinion polls consistently give the Conservatives a big lead over Labor.

For schools, Mr Corbyn promises that "we will make sure schools are properly resourced by reversing the Conservatives' cuts and ensuring that all schools have the resources they need". I was elected by a very large number of members and supporters, ordinary people all over this country.

Jeremy Corbyn's chief union cheerleader has dramatically admitted Labour can not win the general election and claimed 200 seats would be a good result.

The current 45% top rate of income tax would apply to earnings over £80,000 ($103,000) a year, down from £150,000 ($193,000) at present.

I've covered elections where voters tell me they think all the parties are the same.

The candidates for Pudsey constituency are Stuart Andrew for the Conservative Party, Bob Buxton for the Yorkshire Party, Ian McCargo for the Labour Party, Allen Nixon for the Liberal Democrats and Independent candidate Michael Wharton.

Labour would nationalise the water industry, along with Royal Mail and the railway network.

The Conservatives said Corbyn's numbers did not add up and that "every single working family in this country would pay for Corbyn's chaos with higher taxes".

And in addition to the proposed hikes to corporation tax, the party would also introduce a "high earners' levy" on companies which employ staff earning more than £330,000 a year in order, Mr Corbyn says, to tackle inequality.

The Labour Party has published its full manifesto for the upcoming General Election on June 8.

It's perhaps telling that JME hasn't even directly endorsed Corbyn - he simply wants young people from different backgrounds to become more engaged with the political process, and saw the Labour politician as a means to open that conversation.

"You can only fund our National Health Service, you can only have the funding that we have made available in relation to the nation's child care if you have got that strong economy".

"His economic ideas are nonsensical, his views on national security indefensible and he'd make a total mess of the Brexit negotiations", chief secretary to the finance ministry, David Gauke, said in a statement.
