After the main party leaders faced the BBC‘s Question Time audience, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is back out on the campaign trail.

The Future Is Ours

Corbyn is heading to Loughborough in the morning to launch the party’s youth manifesto.

The document, entitled The Future Is Ours, will see Labour pledging to spend an additional £1 billion on youth services, as well as committing to giving 16-year-olds the right to vote and investing an additional £250 million to build up to 500 new youth centres.

Corbyn is also expected to deliver a speech on Saturday outside an Amazon depot in Yorkshire.

He will vow to tackle the “tax and wage cheat culture” of multinational companies who “rip off” workers and the public purse with measures to force them to pay their fair share.

Conservatives meanwhile…

The Tories, meanwhile, have not announced any plans for campaigning on Saturday, but are likely to be preparing for their manifesto launch.

Boris Johnson will be the last of the main party leaders to launch their manifesto, although the party has been drip-feeding policy announcements.

 

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
