Jeremy Corbyn launched Labours election campaign on Tuesday (9 May) with a speech aimed at the partys core voters. He criticised the Conservatives for being part of a system which he said was skewed towards the wealthy and those who want to hijack Brexit whilst paying less tax. Labour is under attack because we are standing up to the elites, he told the rally audience in Manchester, northern England. Pollster ICM said on Monday (9 May) that the Conservative Partys lead was the biggest on record on record for any British election survey it had conducted and commentators, including some senior Labour figures, say Corbyn is to blame for the partys growing unpopularity.Corbyn, a socialist who has pledged higher taxes on the wealthy and a crackdown on powerful corporations, fought off a challenge to his leadership last September, only a year after he was first elected to the position with many of his own lawmakers doubting his appeal to the wider electorate.
