Hi,

here is a copy of the Leaked Draft of The Labour Party sadly I believe, if the electorate have any judgement or common sense it will lead to Labour wipeout at the election and Britain with the plight of effectively being a one party state without an opposition!

 

Having read this manifesto it seems clear to me that it is more of a nanny state controlling hand than anything else, in its pandering to populism at the expense of reality or even common sense.

There just isn’t enough nor even a fraction of the amount of money available to implement idiotic promises to re-nationalise the railways, let alone actually considering what merit there is in having a Nationalised anything, let alone railways, which are all too readily a drain on the economy with little or no justifiable need, when you consider the near impossibility of having a rail system that is cost effective in as small a land mass as Britain, since the major cost of running a railway is loading and unloading passengers and goods a task that requires far greater journey distances than are either the norm or viable in Britain.

Anyway read the Manifesto and draw your own conclusions as I believe it is more Communist tyhan Socialist as socialist principles are for the good of the people not the state and for that to be viable they must be affordable in both the long and the short term.

As many have already recognised this is hardly a document to take seriously and readily described along with Kinnock’s and before that Michael Foot’s it is clearly an overly long suicide note. If it is not then it is a statement of intent to destroy Britain!

It is also worthy of note that the re-nationalisation of either the Royal Mail or the Railways is in fact not just economically non viable but actually against the law of the land, at very least until BreXit has been fully implemented!

Manifesto:

For the many not the few

Creating an economy that works for all

Corbyn pledges to re-nationalise railways and scrap tuition fees

  • Its promises include: No tax rises for anyone earning under £80,000 but tax increases for the highest 5% of earners.
    Councils to build 100,000 new homes a year.
  • 100,000 additional police officers.
  • A universal superfast 30mbps broadband internet service to all households by 2022.
  • Rent control in the private tenant sector.
  • A ban on zero hours contracts.
  • Extend HS2 into Scotland.

LONDON — A Labour government under Jeremy Corbyn would renationalise the railways, Royal Mail, and parts of the energy industry, according to a draft of the party’s election manifesto leaked on Wednesday evening.

In what is arguably the party’s most left-wing manifesto in decades, Labour leader Corbyn proposes a “transformative” agenda, including £6 billion for the NHS, £1.6 billion for social care, and the phased abolition of university tuition fees.

The party responded by saying it does not comment on leaks.

Labour’s pre-election manifesto was not intended to be published until next week however a full draft copy was leaked to the Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph newspapers.

Those on the left of the party will likely be delighted with what the 43-page document contains.

It is exactly what you would expect from a Corbyn manifesto, bar his commitment to renewing the Trident nuclear deterrent system.

It promises no tax rises for anyone earning under £80,000 but tax increases for the highest 5% of earners. It also demands increases in corporation tax.

Other pledges include instructing councils to build 100,000 new homes a year, 100,000 additional police officers, £5 billion of spending in education to reverse Tory cuts, and capping private rents in line with inflation.

The manifesto is also set to guarantee £250 billion for improving Britain’s infrastructure.

It also details these macroeconomic goals:

● Set out a plan to eliminate the current spending deficit on a forward-looking, five-year rolling timescale
●  Leave debt as a proportion of trend GDP lower at the end of each Parliament than at the start
●  When conventional monetary policy is hampered by the lower bound to interest rates, suspend operation of the rule in order that fiscal policy can work with monetary policy to support economic recovery
● Make the Office of Budget Responsibility responsible to Parliament with a clear mandate to “blow the whistle” on government breaching these rules.

Corbyn’s pitch is centred on giving lots more money to the country’s struggling public services — a pledge that the Conservatives will likely attack as a plan to “bankrupt” the country.

However, the Labour leadership insists the party’s bold measures are all fully-costed, funded through the money raised by raising tax for high earners and corporations.

The leaked manifesto says Labour will not copy the Conservatives by making “false promises” regarding immigration and does not state a numerical target. It says “our economy needs migrant workers to keep going” and proposes scrapping laws which stop Brits from bringing in spouses from outside Europe unless they earn £18,600-a-year.

Corbyn also rules out leaving the European Union without an exit deal being in place. Theresa May has insisted on numerous occasions that she’d be prepared to take Britain out of the EU with no agreement being in place as “no deal is better than a bad deal.

Labour leader Corbyn was due to launch the party’s campaign poster in central London on Thursday morning, while former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown will give a speech in Coventry at around lunch time. The launch, however, was cancelled after the leak.

Other commitments include:

  • We will deliver a universal superfast 30mbps service availability to all households by 2022.
  • Ensure that 60% of the UK’s energy comes from low or renewable sources by 2030
  • creating a National Education Service [for skill training]
  • Labour will amend the takeover regime to ensure that businesses identified as being ‘systemically important’ are protected from hostile takeovers, and ensure that when a company is bought there is a clear plan in place to protect workers and pensioners
  • Reinstate the small business corporation tax rate.
  • Labour will insulate four million homes as an infrastructure priority to help those who suffer in cold homes each winter.
  • We will scrap the Conservatives’ Brexit White Paper and replace it with fresh negotiating priorities that have a strong emphasis on retaining the benefits of the Single Market and the Customs Union
  • Labour will not make false promises on immigration numbers. Our economy needs migrant workers to keep going.
  • Overhaul the existing childcare system in which subsidies are given directly to parents who often struggle to use them, and transition to a system of high-quality childcare places in mixed environments with direct government subsidy.
  • Give all workers equal rights from day one, whether part-time or full-time, temporary or permanent – so that working conditions are not driven down
  • Ban zero hours contracts – so that every worker gets a guaranteed number of hours each week
  • [On the gig economy:] Shifting the burden of proof, so that the law assumes a worker is an employee unless the employer can prove otherwise.
  • Labour will guarantee the state pension “triple lock” throughout the next Parliament. It will rise by at least 2.5% a year or be increased to keep pace with inflation or earnings, whichever is higher.
  • By the end of the next Parliament we will be building at least 1 00,000 council and housing association homes a year for genuinely affordable rent or sale.
  • We will end insecurity for private renters by introducing controls on rent rises, more secure tenancies and new consumer rights for renters.
  • Labour will scrap the punitive bedroom tax.
  • Labour will commit to over £6 billion extra in annual funding through increasing income tax for the highest 5% of earners, by increasing tax on private medical insurance, and we will free up resources by halving the fees paid to management consultants.
  • Labour will recruit 10,000 more police officers to work on community beats, equivalent to at least one more for every neighbourhood in the country.
  • A Labour government will complete the HS2 high speed rail line from London through Birmingham to Leeds and Manchester, and then into Scotland, consulting with communities affected about the optimal route. A Labour government will invest to regenerate the local and regional economies across the whole country, so that every area gets its fair share of transport investment. A Labour government will link HS2 with other new investments, such as Crossrail of the North.
  • We will cease the badger cull which spreads Bovine TB.
  • Labour opposes a second Scottish independence referendum and will campaign tirelessly to ensure that the desire to remain a part of the UK is respected.
