Corbyn launches election campaign to transform Britain: No more tax cheats, no more rip-off bosses
JEREMY CORBYN launched a blistering attack on “tax cheats, rip-off bosses and greedy bankers” yesterday as he officially launched Labour’s general election campaign.
The Labour leader pledged radical reforms to repair the damage done by the Tories and their profit-hungry privateer pals to Britain’s health, education and social care services.
He told a crowd of supporters in Manchester: “When Labour wins there will be a reckoning for those who thought they could get away with asset-stripping our industry, crashing our economy through their greed and ripping off workers and consumers.”
And he said Labour’s plans meant “ruin” for the Tory Party.
“We have four weeks. Four weeks to take our message to voters to convince them Britain can be better. It can be transformed. It doesn’t have to be like this.
“We can transform Britain into a country that instead of being run for the rich, is one where everyone can lead richer lives,” Mr Corbyn stormed.
Mr Corbyn noted the Sunday Times Rich List last weekend found the 1,000 wealthiest people in the country had seen their wealth grow by 14 per cent in the last year.
“Imagine the outcry if public-sector workers put in for a 14 per cent pay rise,” he said.
He said the full details of Labour’s plans will be revealed soon. “In the coming days, we will be setting out our plan to transform Britain — with an upgraded economy run for the many not the few,” he said.
