Labour really need to hope that today's manifesto launch gives its campaign a much needed boost. So far this has been a brutal GE campaign.

4 people have said Brexit Party in the poll. I would be interested to know why? Is it the cult of Farage? Or that it is a way you can be Tory heavy?

I am delighted to have watched the launch of the most Socialist, Labour Party manifesto since I was born. 1954 by the way. Ten years previously Labour inroduced the splendid NHS. The Tory/Trump/Big Pharma will try to reverse our gains. NO. Yes, 40 years of International condemnation of illegal occupation by the Israeli State of occupied Palastinian land. He is a slave, as is Big Business, to Trump .
When listening I thought that I would never here a political Party leader saying that the Billionaires, Bankers (who created the financial crisis internationally.) Should pay and that he recognised he was hated by them and their rubbish Press. More importantly he said ' I do not care what you the Bankers, Companies who pay less fucking tax than me BIG G pro rata, think, in other words 'Fuck you all get to fuck. Splendid. You may not agree however, a brilliant Synopsis.
I hope Progressives repeat this Radical Left Wing perspective. Nichola and Ian step up over to you. As others have said, dinnae be New Labour lite.

You think?Apart from You Gov which mainstream media made a lot of,at least three other polls had Corbyn winning that debate two nights ago.The manifesto today will gain a lot of support from the right places.Brexit is now not the major talking point for most voters.It has been superceded by the NHS.

Pity no enough people will vote for him G. He has been portrayed as a pariah down south. A nat lab pack might just work too.*

*certainly until Scotland becomes an independent nation again.

The SNP are probably wishing Alex Salmond would die in a ditch alongside Johnson.A major sex scandal isn't a good look for a party wanting to get votes.

He's not a member, but I can imagine the schisms in the party branches going on for the pro and anti Salmond camps.

He is no longer a member of the SNP. Pity the press didnae go after the other ‘accused’ in the other parties as vociferously.

Like the daily attacks on Corbyn every single day by the billionaire Establishment Tory, Big business, right wing Blairites,like horrendous Machavelian Tom Watson, Chuka (I am never off the TV, newspapers ) Tory Lite Amuna, fuck me back on as I type and the Jewish Chronicle et al. Maybe they have correctly established who is the biggest theat to their outrageous privilege. Neither Salmond, nor Sturgeon are. What exacty apart from Independence are their Radically, Socialist/Left policies for the next several years ?

I have to say I waited with baited breath when shit about this chancer broke. Not a cheap from the 80% on here. However, no surprise, over the years have heard zilch from Nats on here in terms of criticism of anything the SNP have done. Unsurprisingly until the past few months, some Nats have. Good on those honest balanced amigos.

Actually there was a thread at the time G, but we had to police it due to the legal implications, I am sure #Jack of this manor gave us some good advice at the time.

I meant “alleged” sex pests specifically by the way. I acknowledge the attacks on Corbyn are relentless and generally nonsense.

I note as one of the 80% many of the radical socialist policies the Labour Party are proposing seem to have been introduced by the SNP in Scotland already?

Interested to know what they are Mark? As I've said many times the SNP have been timid. If that's socialist policies then New Labour 1997-2010 were revolutionaries!

In what way Kenny? What the Labour Party ones are, or the SNP ones were?

I've never been a fan of the Stasi like way the snp is and was run by Salmon, Sturgeon and Murrell. Sometimes you've just got to hold your nose and vote for the bigger picture.

I think it's a fair opinion that the snp have pursued populist policies to establish that they(we) could govern Scotland. One eye always on independence, I don't think that's unreasonable - and they are always upfront that this is the number one aim.

What is exciting for me is the political possibilities that an independent Scotland provides - and I think if we ever become independent two things will happen. The Snp will fracture, and the emergence of new political groupings. That I think will be positive, because socialism is likely to be at the forefront of that.

I agree, they are simply a means to an end for me.

SNP socialist policies? They've been very New Labour/Social Democratic to my mind. Free prescriptions aside....

Couple of examples:

Currently fighting for a real living wage of £10 minimum for all workers, one the Labour Party have announced they now plan to introduce in their manifesto yesterday?

The scrapping of Tuition Fees, another one the Labour Party have announced yesterday?

The Carers allowance supplement?

Mitigation of the Labour introduced, Tory/ Lib Dem supported bedrooom tax?

Opposition to the state pension age increases.

Opposition to Trident?

I am not in anyway claiming the SNP are a socialist party, I agree they very middle of the road, but I understand why, the have to appeal to as wide an audience as possible to gain enough support for independence. A means to an end.
