Tax and spend: UK Labour Party releases its election pledges

Following the launch of Labour's General Election manifesto on Tuesday, the Tories issued an analysis highlighting what it said were billions of pounds of unfunded commitments.

An analysis by the party of energy company accounts in 2013 found they were paying out £3.2 billion a year in dividends and interest payments.

"Despite the relatively prohibitive price of 1/16, the Tories have been well backed in the last 24 hours and we have seen £10.12 placed on them winning the General Election for every £1 on Labour", said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

"Our plans for public ownership and greater transparency will slash bills and drive investment in efficiency and renewables".

Prime Minister Theresa May called the snap vote, citing the need to strengthen her hand for Brexit talks, and polls show her Conservatives handing Labour its worst defeat since at least 1983.

There has been a gradual rise in Labour's polling numbers since the start of the campaign.

"This manifesto is the first draft of a better future for the people of our country".

"The scale of the task is huge".

At the end of his tweet, DeVito added the hashtag #grime4corbyn, used by some United Kingdom rappers to voice their support for the Labour campaign.

It's flawless. Jeremy can not win, and every time you propel him and his views into the public eye, you destroy the Labour party a little bit more.

"I don't think we will be wiped out here", he said.

"We are sending messages out to our members saying, this is a decent, honest man, who is on your side, what have you got to be afraid of, what have you go to lose?"

Labour would lose 45 seats but win former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg's Sheffield seat as minor compensation putting them on a post war low of 188.

Mr McCluskey claimed he was not setting a benchmark on which his own support for Mr Corbyn rested.

He added: "Let's wait and see what that turns itself into, in terms of percentage votes and seats".
