Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'

"And only Jeremy Corbyn's Labour party has the capacity to bring the country together with a vision of Brexit that genuinely protects jobs and communities".

Aides described the meeting as "very positive" and shadow chancellor John McDonnell said there was a "great atmosphere", while deputy leader Tom Watson described it as "very buoyant".

At Holyrood, Nicola Sturgeon dismissed Labour's prospects and said Mr Corbyn wasn't going anywhere near Downing Street.

"Are we going to be a country that gives riches and makes riches for all of us?" he said.

"The Prime Minister yesterday said that she was calling a general election because parliament was blocking Brexit, but three quarters of MPs and two thirds of the Lords voted for Article 50, so that's not true, is it?"

She said: "It is unlikely, if I look at the figures, that we will have a Labour government".

Although unlikely to fall behind the Liberal Democrats in the number of seats in the House of Commons due to its greater number of safe seats, there is a real possibility the divided Labour Party will secure fewer votes overall, said Prof Bale.

He promised to target the rich, claiming he would "put the interests of the majority first" and stand up for people held back by a rigged economic system.

Thus, the criticism that Assad continues to launch air strikes, from the base we hit or from elsewhere, misses the point. Iran and Hezbollah, both bitter enemies of Israel, along with Russian Federation have sent forces to support Assad.

Despite polls putting Labour as many as 21 points behind the Tories, he insisted the election result was not a "foregone conclusion", declaring: "Things can, and they will, change". "Isn't the truth that we can not believe a single word she says?" "We can't win, they say, because we don't play their game", he will tell an audience in Westminster, London.

"I want a Labour government that ensures that carers are properly supported when they are caring for loved ones".

Labour could suffer devastating defeats in Birmingham in the June 8 general election.

He said it was a "rigged system" set up by a "cosy cartel" which he said was "set up by the wealth extractors for the wealth extractors".

Accusing the party of putting forward "offensive and negative trash about our country", she said any attempt to denigrate the United Kingdom for poltical gain would be "shameful".

Setting the tone for the next seven weeks, the Prime Minister picked out every one of Jeremy Corbyn's unhappy backbenchers and reminded them - and the country - of Labour's divisions.

Turning to Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale, she added: "Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable and will leave Labour carping from the sidelines - how do we know that?"

If she can achieve a resounding election victory, that would limit the scope for parliament to block or water down her plan for Britain to quit the European Union single market and to prioritise immigration control.

The comments, made during First Minister's Questions, represent a flip-flop on Ms Sturgeon's previous position just 24 hours earlier, when she suggested Labour might scrape into power.
