Will you help make this another super weekend for Jeremy Corbyn?

Jeremy Corbyn is not impressed with Labour’s manifesto

He has read it – and Jeremy Corbyn is not impressed with Labour’s manifesto.

In particular, the former Labour leader has taken exception to Keir Starmer’s refusal to reverse the two-child limit on Child Benefit.

“Labour’s manifesto caps child benefit, but not bankers’ bonuses,” he said.

“That tells you everything you need to know about Labour’s priorities.”

He explained that, with more than four million children living in poverty in Britain today, it is “shameful” that the Labour Party hasn’t pledged to abolish the harmful two-child benefit cap.

Removing the cap wouldimmediately lift 250,000 children out of poverty overnight, including – of course – people in the constituency for which he is standing: Islington North.

“I’ve always been opposed to this cruel policy: in 2015, I called it ‘rotten and indefensible’ and voted against it. It was immoral then. It is immoral now,” he said.

“If I’m re-elected, I’ll be fighting to scrap the two-child limitin order to do that, I need … help todayWe still have thousands of doors to knock on in Islington North – and only 22 days until the election.”

If you are in Islington North, or are able to get there to help, feel free to join one of the many canvassing sessions Mr Corbyn and his team are running, starting at the following locations, at the following times:
