Jeremy Corbyn urges undecided voters to 'vote for hope' and back Labour

Jeremy Corbyn will urge undecided voters to “vote for hope” and back Labour in “the most important election in a generation” on Thursday.

With one day to go until the public goes to the polls, the Labour leader will reiterate his party’s renationalisation plans, vow to “save our NHS” and highlight a promise to boost the minimum wage for all workers.

He will today also spell out to supporters in the Labour stronghold of Middlesbrough Labour’s pledge to hold a second referendum on a “credible” Leave deal and Remain.

Labour will go into the General Election on Thursday as rank outsider for overall victory, but the party insists Mr Corbyn becoming the next prime minister is still on the cards.

To achieve this – or to deprive Boris Johnson’s Conservatives of a majority – they will need to win over undecided voters in what Corbyn will describe as “the most important election in a generation”.

In the speech, Mr Corbyn is expected to say: “My message to all those voters who are still undecided is that you can vote for hope in this election. It’s time for a pay rise for 12 million people, for lower fares and bills and for free childcare.

“We will put money in your pocket because you deserve it. The richest and big business will pay for it.

“We will save our NHS by giving it the money it needs, ending privatisation and by not selling it out to Trump.

“This is the most important election in a generation and people have the chance on Thursday to vote for a government for the many, not the few.”

The latest YouGov poll estimated 13% of voters are yet to decide which party they will choose.

And around two-thirds of those behind a 3.2-million surge in applications to vote since the election was called were aged under 35.

Labour will hope those younger voters, who tend to be far more inclined to vote for the party, will turn out on Thursday and deliver a shock to the Tories.
