Corbyn said his manifesto, which also included scrapping university tuition fees and ending cuts to the much-loved National Health Service, was fully cost and would reverse what he called "a Britain run for the rich, the elite and the vested interests" under Prime Minister Theresa May.

And Stormzy, perhaps the biggest name in grime music at the moment, wrote: "I saw some sick picture of him from back in the day when he was campaigning about anti-apartheid and I thought: Yeah, I like your energy".

Politico quoted McCluskey as saying working class voters who plan to vote Conservative for the first time will do so "because their mind is being turned by the constant attack of the media on Jeremy Corbyn and the image that they've pinned on Jeremy".

If Labour were to win 200 seats, that would represent its worst result since 1935.

Guided by the strapline "For The Many: Not The Few", Corbyn's manifesto seeks to impose £50 billion in annual tax rises for top United Kingdom earners (+ £80,000 per year), combined with a return to nationalising United Kingdom civic services such as the Royal Mail, National Grid and transport sectors. You've got the guy.

"I don't think it matters whether I'm a fan or not - it matters whether I think he can do the job in running the country".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: "Labour will rebalance our economy so that the many are no longer ripped off by the wealthy and powerful few. I'm not optimistic, but we'll wait and see".
