Election poll: Corbyn wants to hand all young people a council house – do you agree? VOTE

Express.co.uk readers can vote in our poll on whether the Labour leader is right that all young people should be entitled to a council house. Mr Corbyn warned youngsters should not have to “make their own way in the world” as he addressed supporters on Wednesday.

In his speech, the veteran left-winger said: “It is time we started building a country fit for the next generation where young people don’t fear the future but look forward with confidence.

“Think of the young people who are given the subliminal message to look after your own education and look after your own health, forget about council housing, make your own way in the world.

“It’s depressing, it’s unnecessary and it’s all part of the contraction of the public realm and the public state.

“It’s within our grasp to do something different in this election, and that’s what we are absolutely determined to achieve.”

The Labour leader also said his party was well organised, well prepared and “utterly determined” to win on December 12.

He added the General Election is a “once-in-a-generation chance” to transform the country.

And Mr Corbyn promised the “most radical and far-reaching plan for real change in our lifetimes”.

“That puts power and wealth into the hands of the people - a government that works for you.”

The Labour leader was back on the campaign trail today in Liverpool and Manchester.

But his bid for power has suffered a series of blows after deputy leader Tom Watson resigned last night.

And former Labour MPs Ian Austin and John Woodcock urged voters to back Boris Johnson instead at the General Election.

It comes as the Prime Minister is heading to the North East, Scotland and Northern Ireland as part of a three-nation campaign trip on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party announced earlier that they have formed a General Election pact, agreeing not to stand against each other in 60 seats across England and Wales.

The deal was brokered by the Unite to Remain group and the group is confident that “at least 44” of the 60 seats are “highly winnable”.
