Jeremy Corbyn hails Labour manifesto that gives ‘promise of a better Britain’

Meanwhile, support for Nigel Farage’s Brexit party hit a new low, sinking from seven to five per cent. 

It follows his announcement he would withdraw candidates from seats won by the Conservatives in 2017 to help Prime Minister Boris Johnson deliver Brexit. 

The Liberal Democrats also saw a drop in support to 14 per cent, after starting at 19 per cent when the election was called.

The latest figures come as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he has secured “unanimous agreement” on a manifesto that gives the “promise of a better Britain”.

Mr Johnson made his first keynote speech in the general election campaign this week, pledging to drive a clean energy revolution while investing in the NHS, cutting crime and helping people with the cost of living if he wins on December 12.
