Jeremy Corbyn vows not to 'play by the rules'

jeremy corbyn wows to change the rules

Mr Corbyn will vow to change the direction of the election by 'putting the interests of the majority first'.

He will attack wealthy tax avoiders and insist a Labour government will not "play by their rules". Theresa May is hoping to convert the Tories' double digit poll lead into a bigger Commons majority. The prime minister says this will strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations and provide the "strong and stable leadership" the country needs. Her decision to hold a general election - after previously insisting she would wait until 2020 - took her rivals and many in her own party by surprise. Mr Corbyn could have blocked it in Parliament but instead ordered his MPs to back the snap poll in a Commons vote on Wednesday.

The Labour leader looks set to run an anti-establishment campaign, presenting himself as a champion of the powerless against political and business elites. In a speech in London, Mr Corbyn will say: "Much of the media and Establishment are saying this election is a foregone conclusion. "They think there are rules in politics, which if you don't follow by doffing your cap to powerful people, accepting that things can't really change, then you can't win. "But of course those people don't want us to win. Because when we win, it's the people, not the powerful, who win." He will add: "They say I don't play by the rules - their rules. We can't win, they say, because we don't play their game."They're quite right I don't. And a Labour government elected on 8 June won't play by their rules."
