Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'

The party's ratings under Jeremy Corbyn have been woeful- with the most recent showing it is 21 points behind the Conservatives Green Party calls for electoral pacts with Labour and the Lib Dems to 'stop the Tories wrecking our country'

One YouGov UK opinion poll in the Times on Thursday suggested Conservative support was at 48%, with Labour on 24%. But, as it has been said before, you campaign in poetry, govern in prose.

Mick Bennett said: "Corbyn is the best asset that the Conservative Party have ever had".

"I want a Labour government that isn't closing hospitals, that isn't underfunding schools..." And if a Labour Government is elected on 8 June, then we won't play by their rules either.

Firstly, speed is key. Tory pollsters fret that a Liberal raid on Remain voters might eat into the government's expected majority, with London and the south-west of England, the Lib Dems' historical stronghold, particularly vulnerable.

And the Labour leader, launching a Donald Trump-style insurgency campaign, has vowed to take on the establishment and says he will not "play by the rules" in the election.

But Mr Corbyn appeared to dodge the question, replying: "The European Union negotiations are going on and we set out our (red) lines on the negotiation". The British people voted previous year to leave the European Union.

Secondly, message is everything.

Edinburgh South - the seat of Scottish Labour's sole MP, Ian Murray - is "very complicated", according to Curtice. It was a tactic adopted to the point of derision by David Cameron in 2015, but the slogans will help stabilise how the party is being perceived by the public.

Don't be angry at the privatisers profiting from our public services, they whisper, be angry instead at the migrant worker just trying to make a better life.

UKIP has lost its only MP, its leader is regarded as literally incredible after his performance in the Stoke by-election and, more importantly, Mrs May has shot the UKIP fox. The next six weeks can not be devoted to policies such as Trident that have little sway on the broader public, and is divisive within the party itself.

But he will insist: "Things can and they will change".

It is the establishment versus the people and it is our historic duty to make sure that the people prevail. They oppose democracy. And for the party claiming to be "the real opposition to the Tories", isn't it amusing their leader Tim Farron has refused to rule out going into another coalition with the Conservatives.

"It's clear Labour, the Lib Dems and the SNP are now lining up to disrupt our Brexit negotiations in a coalition of chaos".

Corbyn, who voted to leave the EU's predecessor in 1975 but supported "Remain" past year, has been criticised for muddling the party's position on Brexit and failing to effectively challenge May's push for a clean break with the bloc. Labour can not allow itself to be sucked into this. For the next six weeks the party needs to come together and present themselves to the nation as a team.

However, one of Mr Corbyn's critics, Labour backbencher John Woodcock, said there was still time for the leader to quit ahead of the poll, "rather than lead Labour to defeat".

When a secret list drawn up by Corbyn allies ranking Labour MPs according to their loyalty to the party leader was leaked previous year, Smith was classed as "Neutral but not hostile". You have to fake it until you make it.
