Jeremy Corbyn speaking at Unite fringe event

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking at the Unite fringe event ‘Tackling Bandit Capitalism’, said:

“Britain is at a crossroads and the people of this country will face a clear choice at the coming election.

“Boris Johnson’s born-to-rule Conservative Party and their wealthy friends and donors looking after the privileged few. Or Labour, taking on the vested interests that are holding people back.

“We’re going after the tax avoiders starving our public services of the funding they need. We’re going after the bad bosses and the dodgy landlords exploiting people. We’re going after the big polluters destroying our climate.

“Because we know whose side we’re on. We’re on the side of the people against the super-rich establishment that Johnson represents and we stand for the many – the overwhelming majority who do the work and pay their taxes – not the few at the top who hoard the wealth and dodge their taxes.”
