On Thursday the Labour leader launched the party's general election campaign with a populist appeal for voters to overthrow a "rigged system" run by a "cosy cartel" of the rich and the powerful. But the temptation for Theresa May to increase her parliamentary majority proved irresistibleIt was of course the polls that clinched it. Theresa May didn't want to hold a general election.

However this idea has not yet got the backing of the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, the report said.

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".

Tories dub opposition 'coalition of chaos'.

"I will vote Labour in this election and urge people to vote Labour".

"This can only mean more uncertainty for Britain, more risk and a future that is less secure".

Abbott was noncommittal over a bill passed by Texas Senate in March that mimicked the original North Carolina law. He tried to derail the entire bill using a House legislative maneuver, but was unsuccessful.

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".

And then last weekend, when the most recent figures gave her party a lead of more than 20 per cent over the Labour Party, how could she resist it and not seize the opportunity that was offered?

Brexit has divided both of Britain's main political parties, but Labour is also struggling under Corbyn's leadership, with 172 of his 229 MPs past year trying unsuccessfully to oust him.

"We have consistently demanded a meaningful vote in Parliament and, as the government, will bring the deal we negotiate to Parliament before it is finalised to ensure democratic accountability".

The party's policies, including those on Brexit, will be laid out in further detail in Labour's manifesto in the coming weeks.

"We will no longer allow those at the top to leech off of those who bust their guts on zero hours contracts or those forced to make sacrifices to pay their mortgage or their rent".

He singled out Mike Ashley, Sports Direct owner and Sir Philip Green who faced severe criticism from Corbyn of the BHS pension scandal.

"It is wealth that should belong to the majority and not the tiny minority".

According to the latest poll by YouGov, conducted after the announcement of the election, 48% would vote in favour of the Conservatives, against 24% for the Labour and 12% for the Liberal Democrats.

"They say I don't play by the rules - their rules".

Addressing an audience of Labour supporters in London, Mr Corbyn inveighed against the "morally bankrupt" Conservatives who he said refused to employ the required punitive measures against tax avoiders and other members of a "gilded elite", who were taking wealth "from the pockets of ordinary working people".

This is further ahead of Labour than at any point in nearly a decade, and during Mr Corbyn's leadership.
