Labour won't hit £80000 earners with immediate income tax hike, says Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn was accused of ‘appalling’ conduct yesterday after it emerged he had been arrested in 1986 for joining a pro-IRA protest. He

But I don't see Labour winning.

The Unite leader suggested winning 200 seats - almost 30 fewer than in 2015 - would be a "successful" result for United Kingdom leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The Labour Party is also looking to halt sustainability and transformation plans (STPs), controversial strategies that cover 44 areas in England and which aim to cut costs and integrate health and care services.

On page 120, the paragraph referring to it says: "Labour supports the renewal of the Trident nuclear deterrent".

- Scottish Labour (@scottishlabour) May 17, 2017KD: Independence would lead to turbo-charged austerity.

When a journalist said he had spoken to candidates who did not want to be associated with Mr Corbyn, Mr McDonnell replied: "I don't accept anonymous sources anymore; name a name".

"The reality is in the vast majority of seats across Scotland's central belt, it is the Labour Party that stands a very strong second to the SNP".

Meanwhile, Carolyn Fairbairn, director-general of the CBI business lobby group, told the FT: "Labour's proposals taken as a whole prioritise state intervention over enterprise, and fail to offer the pro-growth and competitiveness agenda the country so badly needs".

The Daily Mail have published a report heavily criticising JME - following the grime artist's conversation with Jeremy Corbyn.

Ms Dugdale was speaking ahead of a major campaign speech in Glasgow, where she will appeal to voters in Scotland who backed remaining in the European Union and the UK. The Conservatives remained unchanged at 49%.

However, McCluskey's remarks are likely to be seized upon by Corbyn's opponents inside the party as evidence that the leadership has all but given up hope of winning the election and has turned its attention to lowering expectations in order for Corbyn to cling to power after June 8.

"If Labour could raise the £49bn it claims we would have highest tax burden in 70 years", he wrote on Twitter.

She defended the Conservative Government's record on disability benefits, telling Jane: "It is about focusing funding on those who are most in need and helping those who can move into the workplace to do so".

Mr Corbyn's critics will see it as a warning to resign if the party wins fewer than 200, but the Labour leader's supporters will see it as a call for him to stay on if Labour tops 200.

Mrs May is the only main party leader with whom more people say they are satisfied than dissatisfied.

"A higher rate would also reduce the incentive for both domestic and multinational companies to invest in the United Kingdom, which might cause concern as we prepare to leave the European Union".

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.
