CHEERING

0:00:080:00:11

-MAN:

-When the steel industry in the UK was put up for sale,

0:00:140:00:16

one politician gave up his holiday and came to South Wales to

0:00:160:00:20

support the steelworkers. That gentleman was Jeremy Corbyn.

0:00:200:00:24

-YOUNG WOMAN:

-I wasn't really interested

0:00:240:00:26

in the Labour Party before.

0:00:260:00:28

But, for the first time, this is a leader I can really get behind.

0:00:280:00:30

He's a decent, principled man that seems like

0:00:300:00:33

he really cares for ordinary people.

0:00:330:00:35

Do you accept inequality and injustice in society?

0:00:350:00:39

Do you accept that people are homeless?

0:00:390:00:41

Do you accept the massive gap between the richest and the poorest?

0:00:410:00:44

Or would you do something about it?

0:00:440:00:46

-MAN:

-As far as leadership, he is a great leader.

0:00:460:00:51

Without a shadow of a doubt.

0:00:510:00:53

As a former British soldier who served in Afghanistan and

0:00:530:00:56

lost friends there and in Iraq, I support Jeremy Corbyn's

0:00:560:01:00

opposition to the wars.

0:01:000:01:01

I trust Jeremy to keep us safe.

0:01:010:01:03

At the end of the day, the economy's got to work for everybody,

0:01:050:01:07

which is why we formed the basic idea...

0:01:070:01:11

..and it's a big one, of having the state,

0:01:120:01:15

a national investment bank, which will ensure there is

0:01:150:01:18

a fairness of investment across the country because there are

0:01:180:01:21

former mining communities in the Midlands, in the north-east,

0:01:210:01:26

in the north-west, and in Scotland and Wales that have seen

0:01:260:01:29

very little investment since the end of the coal industry

0:01:290:01:33

in the 1980s, have seen endemic levels of underemployment,

0:01:330:01:38

low wages, zero hours contracts,

0:01:380:01:41

and skill levels that have not been met.

0:01:410:01:44

Our small businesses, which sometimes are very innovative,

0:01:440:01:47

high-skilled jobs, high-skilled ideas, grow to a certain size.

0:01:470:01:52

Great. Then they need to develop. And what comes along? A hedge fund.

0:01:530:01:58

Buy them up, sell the ideas to somebody else and close down

0:01:580:02:01

the local enterprise.

0:02:010:02:03

We will ensure everyone in work has rights to join a trade union,

0:02:030:02:08

rights to be represented, rights to holidays,

0:02:080:02:11

rights to a decency and fair pay.

0:02:110:02:14

So, we will ensure there is a £10 an hour living wage

0:02:140:02:19

for everybody in this country!

0:02:190:02:21

CHEERING

0:02:210:02:23

If we don't invest in training nurses for the future,

0:02:230:02:27

so the loss of the nurse bursary means there's fewer nurses

0:02:270:02:30

applying to go into nursing in the future, the high cost of medical

0:02:300:02:36

courses at university, all means that you deter people

0:02:360:02:40

from doing that.

0:02:400:02:41

Bring our NHS back to us.

0:02:410:02:44

'Publicly run, publicly financed,

0:02:440:02:46

'publicly employed National Health Service.

0:02:460:02:49

'Not an internal free market.'

0:02:490:02:51

We have a housing crisis of mammoth proportions in Britain.

0:02:520:02:55

We're building overall fewer properties

0:02:550:02:58

than at any time since the 1920s.

0:02:580:03:00

We have a rise in the number of street homeless.

0:03:000:03:03

We have an increase in overcrowding.

0:03:030:03:05

We have enormous pressure on local authorities.

0:03:050:03:08

And we have a property market that means that the...

0:03:080:03:13

those on average and middle incomes are being forced out

0:03:130:03:16

of many of our big cities.

0:03:160:03:19

Instead of a country that's becoming more and more unequal,

0:03:190:03:23

we look to a society where everyone can achieve the best for themselves.

0:03:230:03:28

'I love this country.'

0:03:280:03:31

I love the history, the beauty, the diversity of this country.

0:03:310:03:35

But people are not at ease.

0:03:350:03:38

There's inequality, there's injustice, there's anger.

0:03:380:03:41

There's anger because people can't get on.

0:03:410:03:43

There's anger because people can't get anywhere to live.

0:03:430:03:45

There's anger because young people are not getting the jobs they want.

0:03:450:03:49

Let's do it differently.

0:03:500:03:51

Let's do it differently, where we work from the principle

0:03:510:03:55

that the role of government

0:03:550:03:56

is to give everybody a decent chance, to have public services that

0:03:560:04:01

are there for us, to have an economy that works for all.

0:04:010:04:06

Not easy, any of this.

0:04:060:04:08

But, surely, that's better...

0:04:080:04:10

..much better than food banks,

0:04:120:04:14

people sleeping on the streets, schools collecting money

0:04:140:04:18

from the parents in order to pay the teachers. Surely...

0:04:180:04:22

the effort of a government that works for all...

0:04:220:04:25

..and encourages society to work together

0:04:260:04:29

has got to be better than a government that works

0:04:290:04:32

for the few and allows health to go down,

0:04:320:04:34

and allows income inequality to grow.

0:04:340:04:37

I think our tradition is of people coming together.
