On December 12th, people have the chance to vote for the most ambitious plan to transform our country in decades – Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking ahead of the final days of campaigning, said:

“On December 12th, people have the chance to vote for hope, the chance to vote for the most ambitious plan to transform our country in decades, and the chance to grasp a once-in-a-generation opportunity for real change.

“In this election campaign we have caught the Tories red-handed trying to sell out our NHS for a toxic deal with Trump. And we’ve caught out Boris Johnson peddling falsehoods about his own Brexit deal.

“Boris Johnson’s Conservatives have offered nothing in this election but negativity and a hollow slogan that’s a fraud on the British people.

“It’s no wonder Johnson has avoided scrutiny. He doesn’t tell the truth and he isn’t being straight with the British people. He cannot be trusted to deliver Brexit, or anything else.

“The most powerful people in Britain – the billionaires, the tax dodgers, the bad bosses and the big polluters – will do anything to stop real change, because the system is rigged in their favour and they don’t want to pay their fair share of tax.

“But a Labour government will be on your side.

“The wealthy and powerful say it’s not possible to pay a Real Living Wage of £10 an hour, or build a million new homes or compensate women whose pensions were robbed. But that’s because they don’t want those things.

“We can end privatisation and rescue our NHS. We can kickstart a Green Industrial Revolution and rebuild communities. We can get Brexit sorted and bring our country together. And we can rewrite the rules of our economy to work for the many, not the few.

“When Labour wins, the nurse wins, the pensioner wins, the student wins, the office worker wins, the engineer wins. We all win. The future is ours to make, together, and it’s time for real change.”
