Politicians welcome Labour's clear election commitment to Gib

The Conservative Party had previously averaged 105 more likes or loves per post on Facebook than Labour, and Theresa May had averaged 500 shares per post more than Jeremy Corbyn on Facebook, according to The study of posts from the first three weeks of the campaign.

Labour's manifesto - published on Tuesday - did not set out how plans to nationalise the national grid and the water industry would be funded.

It has been suggested by some Corbyn allies that he should remain leader if he does better than the 30.4% of the vote Labour won at the last election under Ed Miliband. However, let's be clear - what we will be putting over is the type of leader Jeremy will be, and people will respect him, I think. Things can happen. But I don't see Labour winning.

The manifesto also confirms that were Jeremy Corbyn to prove victorious in June, Labour would legislate to ban letting agency fees charged to tenants.

Its response was to say that 95 percent of earners would pay no more tax, but that the burden would start to rise on earnings of more than 80,000 pounds, about $103,000 at current exchange rates, and in corporate taxes.

Jeremy Corbyn's party says that tenants now spend some £9.6 billion a year on homes that can be classed as "non-decent".

Labour has also said it would return the railways to public ownership as franchises expire, or in some cases using franchise reviews or break clauses.
