Portrait of Jeremy Corby Prime Ministerial

Our movement can bring the country together

Today in Medway, I launched our party’s campaign for the European Parliament elections on 23 May.

Our country has been plunged into crisis, putting people’s jobs and industries at risk.

The Conservatives have created and fuelled this division.

Only the Labour Party, which represents all parts of the country, whether people voted to Leave or to Remain, is committed to finding a solution which can bring the country together.

From taking urgent action on the climate emergency, to protecting and strengthening workers’ rights, to facing down the far right, our manifesto speaks to the lives of people in Britain and across Europe.

The real divide in our country is not how people voted in the EU referendum. It is between the many and the few. Whether you’re from Tottenham or Mansfield, Stockwell or Stoke, so many of the problems you face are the same.

Only Labour will bring about real change that makes a difference to the people we have always been here to represent.

Labour’s alternative plan, which protects jobs, living standards and communities, would end the chaos caused by the Conservatives and let us focus on the other big issues facing our country.

But we can never accept the government’s bad deal or a disastrous no deal. So if we can’t get a sensible deal, along the lines of our alternative plan, or a general election, Labour backs the option of a public vote.

Thank you.

Signed, Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party
