Jeremy Corbyn's most influential union backer, Len McCluskey, said it will be a "successful campaign" if Labour holds on to just 200 of the House of Commons' 650 seats in next month's general election.

A Conservative spokesman said: "Jeremy Corbyn can't deliver any of this - it just doesn't add up".

A slew of nationalizations in the rail, water and energy industries capped Labour's pitch with Corbyn offering a "radical and responsible" plan to contrast with May's oft-repeated selling point of "strong and stable" leadership.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Money talks, and in little over 24 hours since Labour launched their manifesto we've seen their biggest and most positive shift in odds in weeks. I think it would be extraordinary", McCluskey was quoted as saying.

"For the first time you'll be asked to cash-in your home when it comes to paying for your care and your treatment", he told the Press Association.

"I thought, with things like the minimum wage, the NHS, schools and so on, unless you are very careful you are going to find a significant swing to Labour on those issues".

"It's clear that proposal after proposal in this manifesto will mean more borrowing and debt: from promises on benefits, to promises on prison guards, to promises on nationalizing the water network", chief secretary to the finance ministry, David Gauke, said in a statement.
