UK Labour's main union backer can't see party winning election

Mr Corbyn sought to put some distance between Labour and the Conservatives on Brexit, promising that Labour would take a different approach in the negotiations, prioritising access to the single market and the customs union.

The problem comes if these higher earners, who pay over 40 percent of income tax receipts, take evasive action.

He was speaking after Labour published its general election manifesto setting out plans for new homes, better rail and bus services and £250 billion investment in infrastructure over 10 years, which Labour says will boost the economy.

It's been a grand tour of Yorkshire for Mr Corbyn over the past couple of days as thousands spilled onto the streets at the Brudenell Social Club in Hyde Park to see him on Monday afternoon and crowds gathered in Huddersfield to hear him speak soon after the manifesto launch on Tuesday.

There would also be a new top rate of income tax of 50 percent, the reports said.

The manifesto reads: 'Labour will be guided by public opinion when determining whether to include directly-elected mayors in future devolution deals'. It suggested that voters' impression of Labour in marginal seats improved when questions prompted them to think about their local area and their sitting MP rather than about the national campaign - implying that a visit from the national party leader might not necessarily be beneficial to Labour's vote. This is a programme of hope.

"It's particularly pleasing to see the commitment to renew Trident remaining Labour Party policy in the manifesto after years of campaigning by our community".

Citing mistakes made by shadow cabinet members Diane Abbott and John McDonnell in interviews over their plans, Mr Hammond said: "Labour has simply become a shambles and, as yesterday's manifesto shows, their numbers simply do not add up".

"If you are earning at the very top end I think it is reasonable that you make a slightly larger contribution to our society's needs", he said. "Sensible, costed and when tested, our policies are highly popular with the public", he told AFP.

Mr McCluskey's prediction of just 200 seats for Labour and a big win for Theresa May and the Conservatives will be interpreted in two ways inside the Labour Party and by political opponents.

He also challenged the Conservative Party leader Theresa May to have "a polite conversation" on national television prior to the election on Thursday, June 8.

The Conservatives' David Gauke, the chief secretary to the Treasury, said: "It's clear that proposal after proposal in this manifesto will mean more borrowing and debt: from promises on benefits, to promises on prison guards, to promises on nationalising the water network".

"People are desperate, especially in Bradford, for a change", the yoga teacher told AFP.

"Jeremy has spoken at the Gala on numerous occasions over the years as a backbench MP, a Labour leadership candidate and as Labour Leader".

"Tax burden already heading upwards".

The TaxPayers' Alliance criticised Labour for "a toxic mix of nationalisations, interventions and monumental tax hikes", calling instead for tax cuts.
