-When the steel industry in the UK was put up for sale,
one politician gave up his holiday and came to South Wales to
support the steelworkers. That gentleman was Jeremy Corbyn.
-I wasn't really interested
in the Labour Party before.
But, for the first time, this is a leader I can really get behind.
He's a decent, principled man that seems like
he really cares for ordinary people.
Do you accept inequality and injustice in society?
Do you accept that people are homeless?
Do you accept the massive gap between the richest and the poorest?
Or would you do something about it?
-As far as leadership, he is a great leader.
Without a shadow of a doubt.
As a former British soldier who served in Afghanistan and
lost friends there and in Iraq, I support Jeremy Corbyn's
opposition to the wars.
I trust Jeremy to keep us safe.
At the end of the day, the economy's got to work for everybody,
which is why we formed the basic idea...
..and it's a big one, of having the state,
a national investment bank, which will ensure there is
a fairness of investment across the country because there are
former mining communities in the Midlands, in the north-east,
in the north-west, and in Scotland and Wales that have seen
very little investment since the end of the coal industry
in the 1980s, have seen endemic levels of underemployment,
low wages, zero hours contracts,
and skill levels that have not been met.
Our small businesses, which sometimes are very innovative,
high-skilled jobs, high-skilled ideas, grow to a certain size.
Great. Then they need to develop. And what comes along? A hedge fund.
Buy them up, sell the ideas to somebody else and close down
the local enterprise.
We will ensure everyone in work has rights to join a trade union,
rights to be represented, rights to holidays,
rights to a decency and fair pay.
So, we will ensure there is a £10 an hour living wage
for everybody in this country!
If we don't invest in training nurses for the future,
so the loss of the nurse bursary means there's fewer nurses
applying to go into nursing in the future, the high cost of medical
courses at university, all means that you deter people
from doing that.
Bring our NHS back to us.
'Publicly run, publicly financed,
'publicly employed National Health Service.
'Not an internal free market.'
We have a housing crisis of mammoth proportions in Britain.
We're building overall fewer properties
than at any time since the 1920s.
We have a rise in the number of street homeless.
We have an increase in overcrowding.
We have enormous pressure on local authorities.
And we have a property market that means that the...
those on average and middle incomes are being forced out
of many of our big cities.
Instead of a country that's becoming more and more unequal,
we look to a society where everyone can achieve the best for themselves.
'I love this country.'
I love the history, the beauty, the diversity of this country.
But people are not at ease.
There's inequality, there's injustice, there's anger.
There's anger because people can't get on.
There's anger because people can't get anywhere to live.
There's anger because young people are not getting the jobs they want.
Let's do it differently.
Let's do it differently, where we work from the principle
that the role of government
is to give everybody a decent chance, to have public services that
are there for us, to have an economy that works for all.
Not easy, any of this.
But, surely, that's better...
..much better than food banks,
people sleeping on the streets, schools collecting money
from the parents in order to pay the teachers. Surely...
the effort of a government that works for all...
..and encourages society to work together
has got to be better than a government that works
for the few and allows health to go down,
and allows income inequality to grow.
I think our tradition is of people coming together.
