Tories' Workers Plan Is Basically A Labour Policy — Ferrari

This concludes our election coverage for the day.

'Likewise, we will ensure all frontline health and social care professionals receive ongoing training to understand and meet the needs of LGBT patients and service users'.

Corbyn tweeted a screen grab of him trolling May in a Facebook Live event hosted by Robert Peston of ITV News, with a question that involved "tax cuts" for "elite friends".

Q: What will you do to bring down train fares?

"The best of a bad bunch" - a voter in Abingdon gives Theresa May qualified support. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has admitted that it may not be met for another year.

The Labour party sought to play down its drubbing with the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, claiming the party had "all to play for" in the general election. Jeremy Corbyn said the government's spending decisions left the NHS more vulnerable to attack.

Unite fixer and Len McCluskey ally Andrew Murray, who quit the communists for Labour in late 2016, is apparently "heading up" Jeremy Corbyn's campaign team.

He also said he would restore training bursaries for nurses.

May also outlined plans to tackle pay gaps between different races and ages, introducing a demand for employers to be transparent to correct "an injustice which can not be allowed in 21st century Britain".

Mrs May said last night: "The fact that different ethnic groups are being paid less for doing the same jobs is an injustice which can not be allowed in twenty-first century Britain". We need to be convincing them to switch to Labour where we can.

Created to provide a quick reaction to the leaked policies from Labour's manifesto, its findings on specific policies appeared highly encouraging for the party: more than 70 per cent support for banning zero hour contracts, as well as keeping the pension age at 66; two-thirds support for increasing tax on salaries above £80,000; and around 50 per cent public support for pledges to build 100,000 council homes and renationalise elements of the energy and railway industries. UKIP and the Greens saw no change in the poll with 6% and 3% respectively.

Our political system is parliamentary, not presidential, but it is still created to have someone at the helm: a prime minister who leads the government and is the face of Britain in all our important global relationships and negotiations.


The Conservative Manifesto, which has yet to be published, will promise to keep all workers' rights now guaranteed by European Union law, put worker representation on company boards and protect pensions. The future is what we collectively make it.

Corbyn has accused the Tory government of failing to invest in the IT infrastructure of the NHS, and thereby making it vulnerable to security breaches.

The Royal College of Nursing has not been told whether a representative from the Conservatives will address its members at congress, the chief executive said.

Labour says as much as £10bn of the pledged extra investment in the NHS could be used to upgrade the NHS' ailing computer infrastructure.

The Labour leader refused to put any figures on the level he would like to see but promised there would be "managed migration" after Brexit.

A National Audit Office report warned that taking money away from NHS services would leave them vulnerable to security breaches.

A look at the polling picture as we inch closer to the election. NHS trusts were urged to patch their software two weeks ago as they were using either outdated systems or had modern systems but failed carry out security updates.

Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley said he was disappointed the Labour leadership had failed to respond to calls for a progressive alliance.

The Lib Dems will roll back mass snooping powers and focus on targeted surveillance and increased policing.

He said: 'If NIC rises for the self-employed are not specifically ruled out in the Conservative manifesto then we will know that a Tory tax bombshell is on the way, aimed not at the rich but at plumbers and plasterers, electricians and taxi drivers, hairdressers and personal trainers.

"People can see if they want to stop Theresa May on June 8 - they understand, they are sensible, they can work it out".
