    Corbyn closes Conservatives’ poll lead in wake of Manchester attack

    Labour has closed the gap on the Tories in two opinion polls taken after the Manchester attack as terrorism has risen up the list of public concerns. The surveys, taken after the atrocity in Manchester on Monday which killed 22 people, each showed a double-digit lead for Theresa May’s party. Labour posted 34 per cent, up four points, and the Tories 46, down two, according to the ComRes poll for the Sunday Mirror and the Independent. May won 42 per cent […]

    Dan Jarvis: Tory manifesto shows Theresa May has assumed the politics of Trump

    But for the enormous tragedy of events in Manchester, the last week would have been a tale of two manifestos. The Tories set out plans to abandon the social insurance principle by taking your home and inheritance to pay for social care. They announced an “aspiration” to get immigration down to less than 100,000 but can’t explain to businesses and universities how they’ll do it. They’ve said they’ll regulate your use of the internet and expand shale gas production across […]

    My week trying to understand Corbyn’s biggest fans and toughest critics – and why it is time for us to come together

It’s a fear I struggled to understand during the leadership election last year and I decided I want to understand it this time. I make a vow to myself in the […]

    Cool Corbyn doesn’t concede but terrorism past and present dominates TV showdown

    Jeremy Corbyn tonight went where so many top politicians fear to tread – a face off with interview king Andrew Neil. That he emerged relatively unscathed, however, despite an intense grilling over his past contact with the IRA, showed just how unpredictable this election has become. Corbyn followed in the wake of Theresa May, who was emphatically skewered by Neil a week ago, just hours after she had announced what the veteran journalist described as an “uncosted and half-baked” u-turn […]

    John McDonnell: The experts’ verdict is in – it is a clear choice between Tory cuts and prosperity under a Labour government

    The Institute of Fiscal Studies today presented their assessment of the parties’ manifestos. They made it absolutely clear that the choice between the two parties is huge: more years of austerity with the Tories, stretching well into the next decade – or investment and properly funded public services with Labour, in an economy that works for the many, not the few. We knew that the Tory manifesto was completely uncosted and now we know why: because they are essentially offering […]
