UK's Labour leader says he won't try to reverse Brexit

The source said Mr Corbyn has travelled with the specialist protection unit on other occasions during the campaign, as is customary for an Opposition leader in a General Election.

The leaked draft copy of the election manifesto rejects a "no deal" Brexit and abstains from setting out migration targets.The document was drafted by Jeremy Corbyn's policy chief Andrew Fisher.

The Labour leader was on his way for talks on the party's now-leaked manifesto. And at that point you will be able to ask all the questions you like.

"We will announce our policies in our manifesto, which is our plan to transform Britain for the many, not the few", a spokesperson for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said.

The 43-page document also says Labour will ensure that 60 percent of the UK's energy comes from renewable sources by 2030, the newspaper added.

Brown told the party to "fight" for its values as he delivered a 25-minute speech which did not make any reference to Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour's manifesto was not expected to be made public until next week.

The Lord Of The Rings actor described the former MP as "one of the great young politicians" during his intervention, which came after former Coronation Street actress Julie Hesmondhalgh introduced Mr Corbyn's campaign launch, comedian Eddie Izzard hit the campaign trail and Silk star Maxine Peake appeared in the party's first election broadcast.

Thirteen major banks including Goldman Sachs, UBS, and Citigroup have given an indication of how they would bulk up their operations in Europe to secure market access to the European Union's single market when Britain leaves the bloc.

Len McCluskey, the boss of trade union Unite, has welcomed Labour's leaked manifesto. "We have already seen plans to tax those earning over £80,000 which could easily see a further limiting to tax relief for those impacted".

While its early appearance was "not ideal", he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "On the plus side we are all talking about the Labour Party this morning, we are all talking about some of the visions of how this country can be better".

The Daily Mirror hails the "power grab", saying it would "fix rip-off Britain" and boost the NHS and schools - while the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph warn the manifesto will take Britain "back to the 1970s".

A leaked draft of Labour's manifesto pledges to nationalise the railway industry and take HS2 to Scotland, as well as borrowing billions to fund infrastructure.

These may be popular policies, but elections are also about leadership and whether voters believe someone can do a good job leading the country - and even Corbyn's own circle will admit that Sanders and Melenchon both failed to seal the deal.
