Had a glance over it, pretty ambitious for sure.
Struggling with how they plan to nationalise utilities and stay in europe's rule set (no gov subsidies) - i think it will be a short mtg with Brussels over the manifesto and EU negotiations
Sadly for the thousands and thousands of small businesses (Ltd) its going to be lean times ahead.
CT going up and divs to be taxed within income tax system, looks like i may need to emigrate to keep my standard of living.

"For the many not the few" ! more like "20% off the many to fund stuff with few real benefits"

Labour hate anyone who works hard and earns good money unfortunately.

Luckily there's more chance of me being prime minister than Mr. Corbyn.

I am not right wing, whatever that means nowadays, for example Labour's manifesto proposes to scrap the bedroom tax, i agree 100%, its a stupid tax. They also propose to scrap UC, which is nuts as its the best system we have ever had (implemented badly by the tories), the last thing we need is the Tax credit system back again, its a shockingly bad system.
To think that the public sector can run essential services efficiently is almost an oxymoron. The in-efficiencies that public sector bring dwarf any profit a company can make.
Sadly, there is not a party , left or right, that is making sense to me and to cap it all the Brexit Party have pulled my candidate so as not to dilute the Tory vote......
Oh what to do....

They should start counting spoilt ballots (along with not voted) as a metric for how ----ed the political landscape is.

If the non voting/cock and ball drawing ballots outweigh any single party then something should be done to shake up the offerings as it shows dissatisfied public.

Don't bother, they won't have the right to buy.
When Corbun has done Nationalising all the Rail and Utilities and Seizing Private Schools he'll Nationalise all private rented accomodation.
Of course you'll get a fair price,,, more Pigs anyone.

You may be even luckier and he'll just sieze all rented property and save you the trouble of arguing about the price you've been paid as it'll just be Zero.
 
Labour's manifesto proposes to scrap the bedroom tax, i agree 100%, its a stupid tax.
There's no such thing as the bedroom tax... it was a lie created by Labour to complain about the reduction in housing benefit paid to people to council tenants who were in properties with spare rooms. This was to bring it in-line with the treatment of all other tenants in non-council house properties (incl. housing association)

There's no doubt that the pendulum has swung too far in favour of big business and the filthy rich however the reason it has been allowed to happen is because Labour damn near bankrupted the country in the 70s.

How you get the pendulum to stop at a sensible point, one where endeavour is rewarded whilst the genuinely needy are protecte, is almost impossible.

I can't see Corbyn and the Abbopotomus delivering sense. Labours base is those on benefits, the public sector and gimmigrants who if given the chance will take more and more and it won't be off the likes of Amazon or Google but the middle earners.

That is why I'd have to go Tory, not because I trust or even like them, they're a known quantity but safe.

In my heart I'm a socialist but within reason, whenever socialists get power they lose all reason and eventually run out of other peoples money to give away.

No real choice to be honest.

I'm worried about the proposal to build a million new council houses a week, or whatever they said...
Who is going to build them?
Will they be built to a very low budget?
Do we even have enough builders for this?
Will BC check them all?
Will BC allow even lower standards so they can be kept within budget?
Will I, as a non-electrician, get the contract for wiring them, cos I will be much cheaper than you proper sparks?
Seriously, I can't believe there are enough qualified electricians out there to support such a proposed building campaign, so who will wire all these new houses?
Obviously, no problem finding enough plumbers...

I more worried about the right to buy at 50% after two years or whatever it is. Might be good investment for some aspiring property investor. Or give up work, ask for a council house, keep it then flog it. Nice little earner.

I'm not going to be happy with the re-introduction of right to buy given that we now have a huge shortage of council houses since most of the old stock went into the private sector last time round. Of course, if all the sale proceeds were ring-fenced to pay for replacement stock...aye, right!
Plus, private landlords have had a really bad deal recently, forcing many out of the market when they make a significant contribution to the availability of rented houses. I think it very unlikely that property investors will be adding much to their portfolios unless they are already very wealthy.

Everytime anyone from Labour or the Libdems open their mouths, their own nail guns go off indescriminately and fire another 2 dozen nails into their respective coffins.
Both parties are already dead and buried.

John Macdonald wiped £500million off the value of B.T shares when he announced the Broadband plan.

Given that a future Labour Government, if there ever was such a thing, would propose buying (Nationalising) B.T Openreach at a "fair price" based on the share value at the time, then what they've just done is manipulate the share price down, that's a serious issue under normal cirmcumstances and would warrant investigation by the F.S.A and would lead to prosecution.

I would imagine the housing market has taken a hit now as well.
No current or prospective Landlords are going to want to take a risk of loosing money buying whilst there's even a slight risk of Labour getting in.

Labour are against Billionaires, well if they did get in power and do half of what they've suggested most of the Barristers in the U.K would become billionaires fighting all the seizures and nationalising plans.
Bit of a home goal there..

If Labour nationalised BTOR would they also pay out to cover the losses taken by the other 199 other internet providers? Smaller networks costs and assets run into the hundreds of millions not to mention the jobs and support services that go with them.

I want some of the crack that Labour are smoking...

By all means have some Crack, but I wouldn't recommend any that ANY Politicians are on, it just makes you dillusional to the Nth degree.

They appear to believe the rubbish they all utter.
As above somewhere, the least worst option its going to have to be.
