The Labour Party launched its manifesto on 21 November, setting out a comprehensive series of policy commitments that would improve the majority of people’s lives. This is in stark contrast to real alternatives that voters face from the other political parties standing in this UK general election.
Whenever an election takes place the priority at present for Labour is to win back Remain supporters, the largest bloc of voters that have shifted away from Labour this year.
As the deadline of 31 October approaches it is entirely clear that the political situation is polarising around a choice between Boris Johnson’s attempted coup against parliament to achieve No Deal and Jeremy Corbyn’s efforts to stop it.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has detailed plans for rapid, ambitious and socially transformational climate action to deliver the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Climate Agreement, starting from the moment a Labour Government takes office.
The entire media, the Tory party and the Labour right were gleefully prepared for a Labour defeat in the Peterborough by-election, which they intended to exploit ruthlessly to further undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party.
