Corbyn sets out radical manifesto for United Kingdom polls

The Tories sent out an after hours message to voters that went really badly wrong

The Tories sent out an after hours message to voters that went really badly wrong

The manifesto included a tax increase from 40 percent to 45 percent for salaries of between £80,000 (94,000 euros, $103,000) and £123,0000 a year, above which there will be a new 50 percent top rate of income tax.

Labour has bounced up eight points in a new poll, with leader Jeremy Corbyn's ratings also improving, a fresh poll suggests.

"What we have said is the majority of our funds we want will come from corporate taxation and will come from dealing with the issues of tax evasion and placing profits in convenient tax regimes where very little tax is paid". And in the longer term we look to a faster rate of growth, driven by increased private and public investment, to keep our accounts in shape.

"This is a program of hope. The Tory campaign, by contrast, is built on one word: fear".

Labour promised to renationalise the railways, water companies and part of the energy sector in what critics said was a throwback to an era of far greater state intervention in the economy in the 1970s.

"The question you always have to ask about the Labour Party is how will they pay for it?"

McCluskey said his own support for Corbyn was rock solid and he praised Labour's election manifesto, which was launched on Tuesday and promises renationalisation of some services and measures to curb corporate excess. "To be frank, don't believe them".

For children who do enter care, the party also said it would extend Staying Put - the government policy which allows young people to stay in foster care until they are 21 - to all children in residential care.

Meanwhile, Ms Dugdale rejected union boss Len McCluskey's statement that he can not see Labour winning the General Election.

Although the multi-billion-pound nationalisation of key industries would not officially increase the deficit, because government accounts would show an equivalent increase in state assets, Institute of Directors director general Stephen Martin warned "the costs would be staggering, the benefits unclear, and the related tax rises would make the United Kingdom a less competitive economy".

Britain's opposition Labour Party has launched its manifesto in the run-up to the general election, set to take place next month.

Plaid Cymru also published its manifesto, promising to be a strong voice for Wales during negotiations on Brexit. But we would move down the competitiveness ranking relative to some other European Union countries.

"But our votes are being hijacked by Tory and SNP politicians who want to use how we voted in referendums and general elections to assume something about the kind of future we want to see".

"What is vital now is that we are able to do whatever we can to protect those 200,000 jobs reliant on access to the single market".
