JEREMY CORBYN slams Conservative Party’s “billionaires” manifesto


Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn slammed the Conservative Party’s “billionaire” manifesto on Sunday saying it would favour the rich at the expense of everyone else.

Corbyn was addressing supporters during a campaign in Essex on the same day as the governing Conservative Party launched its manifesto for the December 12 election.

The Conservatives rolled out an election manifesto that promised more public sector spending and no further extensions to the protracted departure from the EU.

They also pledged no new taxes, drawing a distinction with the opposition Labour Party that has promised to raise taxes on the rich and businesses to fund a major expansion of the state.
