Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'

She dismissed Corbyn as "simply not fit to lead" and when asked a question by any Labour MP kept referring to the fact that majority didn't think Corbyn should be their own leader.

When asked afterwards to clarify the Labour leadership's position, shadow chancellor John McDonnell refused to answer the question 10 times.

Instead, Labour wants a "good process by which we continue to trade with Europe".

In a passionate stump speech in Central London to launch his general election campaign the Labour leader faced his critics and warned the media not to write off his chances of victory, as he said they had done during the 2015 Labour leadership contest.

"We have consistently demanded a meaningful vote in Parliament and, as the government, will bring the deal we negotiate to Parliament before it is finalised to ensure democratic accountability".

"For the sake of our NHS, our welfare state and our environment we need progressive party leaders to ditch partisan politics".

Corbyn has criticised her apparent u-turn on a snap election, as May previously insisted there would be no vote before 2020.

Labour trails a long way behind Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives in opinion polls, and many within the party believe 67-year-old socialist Corbyn is too left-wing to connect with voters. "Because when we win it is the people, not the powerful, who win". "They're targeting the "Remain" vote, but I'm not really sure what strategy is going to work in the current environment", said artist Claire Crawford, a Lib Dem supporter who voted to stay in the EU. "It's the right thing for me and my constituents". "And a Labour Government elected on June 8 won't play by their rules".

The bill does include exemptions for cases of rape and incest, and when the life of the mother is at risk. Andre Jacque, of De Pere, is lead sponsor of the bill in the Assembly.

Speaking in London, Mr Corbyn is expected to strike a fiercely anti-establishment tone as he vows to overthrow a "rigged system" of "cosy cartels" and greedy multinationals in favour of a system that "puts the interests of the majority first".

"We will overturn this rigged system".

Not only is she apprehensive about future support from her backbenchers but also over possible impending criminal charges over the Tories' 2015 election expenses.

Labour has proposed a number of policies that provide a clear choice between capitalist austerity and a caring, inclusive and just programme.

SHOULDN'T a friend have suggested to Theresa May that adapting David Cameron's exhausted rhetoric about "a strong economy, strong defence and strong, stable leadership" might not be a good idea? "Let's look, the other parties are lining up to prop up Jeremy Corbyn - we've seen it with the Liberal Democrats and we see it with Nicola Sturgeon's Scottish Nationalists".

Regarded by some in Westminster as the best leader Labour never had, Mr Johnson was a former home secretary and health secretary, serving in the governments of Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.

They have also made 33 net gains in council elections since May, while the Tories, Labour and Ukip have all suffered losses.

Last year's vote to leave the European Union split Labour's traditional supporter base, which is divided between typically pro-EU inner city voters, especially in London, and working-class voters in less affluent areas who voted in favour of Brexit.
