PM’s ‘Corbyn deserter’ comments ridiculed as nonsense.
THERESA MAY was ridiculed yesterday for accusing Labour of “deserting working-class people.”
Campaigning in north-east England yesterday, the Prime Minister promised to “earn the trust of all our people” if she wins the election on June 8.
Following the leak of Labour’s election manifesto promising to renationalise key industries and end years of spending cuts, she said the party had lost touch with its core group of supporters under Jeremy Corbyn.
Labour’s national campaign chairman Ian Lavery said: “This is nonsense.
“The wonderful people of north-east England won’t be fooled by this farcical attempt by Theresa May to mask the damage her Tories have done to the lives of working people across the country.”
Communication Workers Union (CWU) general secretary Dave Ward told the Star: “Jeremy Corbyn has set out an agenda which will rebuild this country and benefit the many, not the few.
“It is beyond parody for Theresa May to claim she is the champion of the working people.
“She is the champion of putting people on the streets, zero-hours contracts, pension cuts, a housing crisis and the running down of our NHS.
