Jeremy Corbyn is setting out a 10-point vision for the future of Britain, promising full employment throughout the UK’s regions and nations brought about in part by £500bn of public spending.
He is laying out the principles of his leadership before the first head-to-head encounter with his challenger, Owen Smith, at a live debate in Cardiff this evening (August 4).
The Guardian doesn’t have many more details, but Mr Corbyn has been kind enough to put out a couple of infographics for your enjoyment – and here they are:
His first pledge will be to create 1m good quality jobs by investing £500bn in infrastructure, manufacturing and new industries, supported by a publicly owned national investment bank.
Corbyn’s second pledge will be to improve job security, giving people stronger employment rights immediately after they begin a new job.
A third pledge on the NHS will be to “end health service privatisation and bring services into a secure, publicly provided NHS”.
