Corbyn: They think there are rules in politics, which if you don’t follow by doffing your cap to powerful people ... then you can’t win
JEREMY CORBYN insisted yesterday that he won’t “play by the rules” in a system that is “rigged” for the few rather than the majority during his first snap general election campaign speech.
He promised that he will stand up for the wealth creators, rather than the millionaire wealth extractors who make their fortunes off the backs of workers through insecure jobs and low pay.
Mr Corbyn also dismissed claims from the press that the election is a “foregone conclusion” in favour of Tory Prime Minister Theresa May.
He was introduced to the packed hall in Church House by Labour MP and shadow cabinet minister Ian Lavery and received a standing ovation.
Mr Lavery said the election is “a golden opportunity” for the party after Ms May had repeatedly denied it would be called. Britain deserves better than Tory-imposed austerity, he added.
