Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'

Plaid Cymru Westminster leader Hywel Williams said his party did not want a repeat of the European Union referendum campaign.

"We understand that, in the immediate run up to an election, signalling a willingness to work with other parties might be hard but we hope you'll agree that the times we are living in require leaders to be courageous and visionary, to actively build a more positive politics".

While Prime Minister Theresa May sought to frame the election as about Brexit, he insisted it was a battle of "the Conservatives, the party of privilege and the richest, versus the Labour Party, the party that is standing up for working people to improve the lives of all".

After the speech, a spokeswoman for the leader said Labour's position, backing a "meaningful vote" in Parliament, had not changed but did not explicitly rule out a second referendum.

But Mr Corbyn has now ruled out a second vote.

Despite polls giving Tories double-digit leads over Labour with just seven weeks to go, Mr Corbyn will say his party can "change the direction of this election" by "putting the interests of the majority first".

She also gave Labour MPs an unwelcome taster of the stockpile of anti-Corbyn quotes that will come back to haunt them every time a reporter asks whether they have faith in their leader.

"Those are the people who are monopolising the wealth that should be shared by each and every one of us in this country", he said.

"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.

"But of course those people don't want us to win".

"The SNP is not far short of the 50 per cent they earned, so I would assume they will hang on to most of their seats". Here are four areas the Labour Party must focus on if they are to stand a chance at winning (whatever that constitutes) on the 8th of June.

"These rules have created a cosy cartel which rigs the system in favour of a few powerful and wealthy individuals and corporations".

LONDON (AP) — Facing steep odds and low popularity ratings, Britain's main opposition leader launched his election campaign on Thursday, painting himself as a populist outsider who will overturn a "rigged" political and economic system.

She added that Labour was offering "one size fits all, local authority-run schools, no choice, good or bad, trust your luck".

Speaking at a campaign rally in Bolton last night, Mrs May said: "There's a very clear choice at this election - it's a choice between strong and stable leadership under the Conservatives or weak and unstable coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn".

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".

The SNP has signalled its MPs will abstain in the vote, but Labour and the Liberal Democrats have welcomed the early election.

Corbyn has also been attacked over reports his son Seb is bidding to stand in the safe Labour seat of Liverpool Walton.
