2017 British General Election June 08,2017 - Jeremy Corbyn launches Mission Impossible

The Labour leader promised to fix the 'rigged' economy that he will claim is exploited by tycoons like Sir Philip Green and Mike Ashley today. 

Despite starting the surprise race more than 20 points off the pace, Mr Corbyn will claim his radical policies can change the face of the election

Jeremy Corbyn 
has used his first campaign rally to slam the 'wealthy elite' and insist he can beat the system to win

His first major speech of the campaign, in London, claimed that Labour will fight on behalf of Britain's 'true wealth creators', promising that ordinary people will win alongside him.

Jeremy Corbyn barely mentioned Brexit in his stump speech and dodged questions on whether Labour would back a second referendum on the final deal.

Jeremy Corbyn  said the election gave voters a chance to pass judgement on the Conservatives' record on austerity and public spending cuts.

Jeremy Corbyn denounced those benefiting from the current system as 'wealth extractors' and say it is only to be expected that they will oppose him.

'Of course those people don't want us to win,' he said. 'Because when we win, it's the people, not the powerful, who win.

'The nurse, the teacher, the small trader, the carer, the builder, the office worker win. We all win.'

But he insisted: 'Things can and they will change. And Labour in this election will be part of a movement of the British people to make that change.'

Controversial business figures like Sir Philip Green, Mike Ashley, Southern Rail and the chief executives of tax-dodging multinationals should be worried about the prospect of a Labour victory, he will say.

'Labour is the party that will put the interests of the majority first,' Mr Corbyn said.

'That's why we will prove the establishment experts wrong and change the direction of this election - because the British people know that they are the true wealth creators, held back by a system rigged for the wealth extractors.'
