Jeremy Corbyn pledges to transform lives in Scotland

Ellis Copeland | 25 April, 2017, 13:32

Unless Tim Farron and Jeremy Corbyn accept that the only way to stop the Conservatives is an electoral pact, the United Kingdom are facing a more divisive, elitist and right-wing government than anything we have faced since Thatcher.

Blair said: "I will vote Labour, I would always vote Labour, and there are many excellent Labour candidates throughout the country".

"I have made clear my views on nuclear weapons". But genuinely acting on these sentiments would require mobilising workers and youth in a political struggle against the Labour right, who constitute a vital element of the "cosy cartel" Corbyn denounces, and who have made clear their vehement opposition to even the most minimal redistribution of wealth in favour of working people.

Jeremy Corbyn will pledge a ten pound per hour "real living wage" while guaranteeing a "triple lock" on pensions during a campaign visit to Scotland today.

'We will upgrade our economy to create wealth for all through investment in our infrastructure, helping our small businesses, delivering high skill jobs and ending poverty pay.

"We will never put tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthiest above our vital public services like our social care system and NHS". Young people are having more opportunities snatched from them each day, from maintenance loan cuts to the re-introduction of selective schools.

Sir Michael attacked Mr Corbyn for suggesting Labour would not commit to renewing the Trident nuclear deterrent, suggesting he would not launch a drone strike on the leader of Islamic State and saying he would suspend strikes against extremists in Iraq and Syria.

As reported by the BBC, Labour is trailing in the polls by as much as 20%.

Lib Dem membership tops 100000 after snap election call
Farron replied: "It's possible I'm not the only person who's getting exhausted of this line of questioning". He has a personal faith and I respect people who have a personal faith.

According to a Panelbase poll for the Sunday Times in Scotland, Labour's support there stands at 13%, compared with 33% for the Conservatives and 44% for the SNP.

In ruling out a progressive alliance between the Greens, SNP, Lib Dems and Labour, both Corbyn and Farron have doomed the United Kingdom to another Conservative government.

"The Tories' promises to deal with energy bills should be taken with a huge pinch of salt".

"The absolutely central question at this general election is less who is the prime minister on June 9, and more what is the nature of the mandate", he said.

The Labour leader questioned why people "want to vote for the SNP, who want to fight for another unwanted and unnecessary referendum, but who have failed abysmally in the fight against poverty and inequality".

French Centrist leader Emmanuel Macron has come out on top in the first round of the presidential election and will now face far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the second round on 7 May.

"Only the Conservatives can bring the SNP's nationalist caravan to a halt and provide the leadership we need to get the best possible deal out of Europe".
