John Prescott charms the people of Hull.

While Theresa May could have been hoping the ground would swallow her up at her u-turning press conference on the Dementia Tax, Jeremy Corbyn was pounding the pavements in Hull – alongside his new weapon: John Prescott.

The veteran campaigner came out like a one-man army, sweet-talking members of the crowd, engaging in call-and-response chants – and getting a few jabs in at the mainstream media while he was at it.

But unlike a famous incident many years ago, all his blows were verbal.

This clip is a joy to watch. See:

With all this going on, it might seem redundant to report that Labour announced even more new policies – despite not having u-turned from any of those the party has included in its manifesto.

We now know that 400,000 university students will be freed from an average of around £27,000 debt this autumn if Labour is elected next month. Tuition fees will be abolished from 2018 under a Labour Government. But Labour is also pledging to write off the first year of fees for students planning to start university this September.

And Labour will create a £1 billion Cultural Capital Fund to invest in the UK’s cultural infrastructure – across arts, music, film, theatre and culture – to build on Britain’s status as a world leader in culture and the creative industries.
