UK Labour's main union backer can't see party winning election

"The focus on their manifesto may have helped them this week, but on many fundamentals such as leadership the public still puts them a long way behind the Conservatives, and their vote is much softer, with one in six of their supporters considering voting for Theresa May's party".

The Lib Dems say their manifesto, due out later, will offer young people a "brighter future".

Mr Hammond said: "There is a £58bn black hole in Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto".

"I think it's ordinary working people who pay the price".

Labour's election manifesto launch was overshadowed by fresh questions over how it would pay for a string ambitious promises costing billions of pounds.

Len McCluskey, the general secretary of the trade union Unite and a key ally of Jeremy Corbyn, has said he expects Labour to lose the general election and suggested a "successful campaign" would be if the party limited its losses to 32 seats in next month's poll.

For McCluskey, success would be holding on to 200 seats, he told Politico.

He has two prior convictions for drunk driving , including in 2008 and 2015, according to CNN. Rojas spent his final months in the Navy at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida.

Corbyn's leadership of Labour has been under nearly constant threat from the party's moderate lawmakers since his surprise win in the aftermath of Miliband's defeat in the 2015 election.

Labour has proposed introducing an inflation cap on rent rises, making three-year tenancies the norm and implementing new consumer rights for renters.

However, the Unite leader did not rule out victory completely, saying Labour was "fighting for every vote" and praising Mr Corbyn's performance in the campaign.

The £100 savings on water bills would come from stopping the extraction of dividends to shareholders, which have averaged £1.8bn per year over the last ten years, and reducing interest payments on water company debt by £500m per year.

When the journalist said he had spoken to candidates who did not want to be associated with Mr Corbyn, Mr McDonnell said: "I don't accept anonymous sources any more - name a name".

The manifesto is expected to include a tax increase from 40 percent to 45 percent for salaries of between £80,000 (94,000 euros, $103,000) and £150,0000 a year, according to The Times and The Daily Telegraph.

Speaking at the University of Bradford on Tuesday, a short walk from where the party was founded more than a century ago, the Labour leader promised to fund his pledges by increasing taxes on the highest earners and closing tax avoidance schemes. On foreign policy, the manifesto says a Labour government would not hesitate to voice disagreements with Donald Trump and promises to immediately recognise the state of Palestine.
