It is rare for the Jeremy Corbyn talks so flippantly like Boris Johnson. But on Friday, the Labour leader made an exception. Corbyn had traveled to Lancaster in the North West of England, in order to give the citizens a taste of the election program of the Labour, to be presented in the coming week. And he said one sentence that can come well from the Prime Minister would have: "Our Manifesto will blow your socks off." Looks like it is Corbyn have done it already on Friday.
The Labour leader said in Lancaster, he led British government would ensure that every household get by 2030 a high-speed Internet access and free of charge. The broadband service is a public service, said Corbyn.
However, especially in rural areas, it would be for the companies no incentive to lay fiber-optic connections. Therefore, he wants to nationalize parts of the Telecom provider BT. Corbyns message was clear: "The people must win control of it back." To be able to Finance all this, will Labour raise taxes on digital companies such as Google, Amazon or Facebook.
Labour wants a lot nationalise
Corbyns advance of the so far most striking attempt to put a different election issue as the all-overlapping Brexit was. The debate about exiting the EU determined in the Kingdom, although the daily headlines, but many people have enough of it. According to surveys, more and more citizens want to let the endless Brexit-armed behind. Prior to the parliamentary elections on may 12. December they demand that the policy responses to their everyday problems.
at the Very top of the health care is. The National Health Service (NHS) suffers, and with it the patient. In hospitals and doctor's offices, the citizens have to wait longer on appointments and treatments. Labour sees the responsibility for the plight of the conservative governments of the last years: The Tories would have saved the NHS broken. Corbyn will therefore ensure that more medical staff is set. Johnson has also, but to a lesser extent.
Also in other policy fields, is that the Tories generous all of a sudden are as under Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May. This begins with the question of how many police officers the country needs, and ends with how many railway routes to be built.
But when Johnson promises something, promises Corbyn even more. No wonder the Tories have launched a campaign against the Labour leader. On the website costofcorbyn.com the Conservatives have a list of what the election promises of Labour costs supposedly. The figure of 1.2 trillion pounds is coming. So much is to impose a Labour government, the tax payers in the next five years. Leading economic researchers doubt the number that agree in the fact that a Prime Corbyn is likely to spend a lot more money than a Prime Johnson. The Labour leader makes it is also no secret, however, the number of more than a trillion pounds, he calls just plain wrong.
The super-rich see themselves
it is established that Corbyn does not want to nationalize only the broadband network, but also the energy and water supply, as well as parts of Post and rail. To Fund this, he wants to raise the top rate of tax. So far this year, income from 150'000 pounds at 45 percent. The Labour program of 2017 saw a top tax rate of 50 percent on income from the 123'000 pounds.
attaches the values Labour now, it will show next week, when the new choice program will be presented. Also, companies have to reckon with stronger loads. In conversation is, that Labour to raise Corporation tax from 19 to 26 percent, and the tax-free amount for inheritance could be cut in half.
British media reports, the super ready rich of the country to see how you can use your assets in the event of a Labour government in a place of safety. Corbyn is convinced that there should be basically no billionaires; at campaign events, he says you regularly fight. The division of society into Poor and rich has always been a subject of Labour. Right now, as there was in the North of England, severe Floods, accused Corbyn of the Prime Minister, that he did not care to little to the poorer regions.

according to the survey, Johnsons Tories are in the polls with ten percentage points ahead of Labour. However, this not only says something about the strength of the parties, but not necessarily a majority in the lower house. Because the mandates are not distributed according to the percentage for the parties, but according to the majority principle. Anyone who brings in a constituency with the most votes gets the seat in Parliament. The Tories to achieve a majority, it could lead to a so-called hung parliament; then Corbyn might have the Chance of a Labour minority government to lead.
But now the choice is fight. And so the time flapsiger words. On the question of what he thought of Corbyns broadband proposal, said Johnson, mutatis mutandis: "crazy idea."
