This British Labour Party video says about itself:
Jeremy Corbyn | Labour’s Offer To Britain
6 June 2017
It’s time for a change.
From the Daily Mirror in Britain, 6 June 2017:
Theresa May, who as home secretary falsely claimed she’d been prevented from deporting a man because he had a cat, has admitted she’ll stop at nothing to be able to deport anyone she wants to.
And if it’s illegal, she’ll just have to change the law.
Speaking in Slough tonight, she threatened to tear up human rights laws if they got in the way of her crackdown.
Add that to her pledges to censor the internet, block communications that the government can’t snoop on and make it harder to vote, and you paint a pretty dark picture of Britain’s future.
From the (Conservative) Daily Telegraph in Britain, 7 June 2017:
Labour has refused to back Theresa May’s plans to tear up human rights laws if they get in the way of tackling terror.
Sir Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary and former Director of Public Prosecutions, said human rights legislation is not a barrier in the fight against extremism.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn said terrorism would not be beaten by “ripping up our basic rights and our democracy”.
Mrs May said she would toughen anti-terrorism measures and not let human rights laws stand in her way in the fight against terror.
Terrorism, a pretext for undermining civil liberties in various European countries: here.

GUNMEN LAUNCH SIMULTANEOUS ATTACKS ON IRANIAN PARLIAMENT AND MAUSOLEUM “Attackers raided Iran’s parliament and set off a suicide bomb at the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran on Wednesday, killing up to seven people in a twin assault at the heart of the Islamic Republic, Iranian media reported.” The Islamic State has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attacks, which would be the first time ISIS has struck inside Iran’s borders.

Rees-Mogg’s nephew caught out misleading voters
TORY Nicola Blackwood has been forced to remove a promotional video of prominent Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg’s nephew saying he will vote for her despite not living in her constituency.
The Oxford West and Abingdon MP, who is defending her seat in tomorrow’s general election, featured the clip of William Rees-Mogg on her Facebook page.
Jacob’s nephew, who is also the president of Oxford University’s Conservative Association, said in the clip: “Hi there, my name’s William.
“I’m voting for Nicola because as a student and, in light of the recent Brexit vote, I’m really keen to get an MP in Parliament who is in government who can be a solid voice for students.
“Nicola’s always been a brilliant advocate for students within Parliament, she always listens, she’s a caring and excellent MP.”
An outraged student at Oxford University, who did not wish to be named, told the Star: “The video is dodgy, it should never have been posted. It reeks of desperation.
“It’s bad enough that Nicola is resorting to relatives of Tory MPs to back her, but it’s even worse to get them to claim they’d vote for her even though they can’t.”
Labour’s candidate for Oxford West and Abington Marie Tidball described the gaffe as “embarrassing.”
Ms Blackwood was elected to the seat in 2010, winning by just 176 votes. She has come under criticism recently for failing to appear at hustings in her constituency.

LABOUR pledged a multi-billion-pound rescue package for the NHS yesterday as an explosive new report exposed details of a “secret Tory post-election plan for cuts and closures.”
According to research published in the Health Service Journal, managers in 14 areas across the country have been told to “think the unthinkable” and make swingeing cuts, including shutting wards, sacking staff and closing A&E and maternity departments.
The plans are so toxic that they are being kept secret from the public until after the general election as NHS England and NHS Improvement officials discuss the measures behind closed doors.
The 14 areas under pressure to make savage cuts are: Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset; Cambridgeshire and Peterborough; Cheshire (Eastern, Vale Royal and South); Cornwall; Devon; Morecambe Bay; Northumbria; North Central London; North Lincolnshire; North West London; South East London; Staffordshire; Surrey and Sussex; Vale of York and Scarborough and Ryedale.
Shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth warned: “The NHS cannot survive five more years of a Tory government” as he promised to bring the health service “back from the brink with a multi-billion-pound rescue package.
“The British people deserve nothing less.”
And Keep Our NHS Public cochairman Dr Tony O’Sullivan said: “Please, we are pleading to people, do not vote Conservative if you want the NHS to survive.”
Appearing on Woman’s Hour on Radio 4 yesterday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd did not rule out the possibility of hospitals being fined for refusing to sell off NHS land under controversial plans in the Naylor Report.
Ms May indicated that she would implement the recommendations of the report, written by former hospital director Sir Robert Naylor, if re-elected.
The report, which was published in March, recommends selling a staggering £2 billion of NHS land to build 26,000 new homes.
And it suggests cutting off access to capital funding for trusts that refuse to draw up “sufficiently stretching plans” to sell off assets.
Campaigners have warned of a “2-for-1 bribe” being offered by the government who would double the money hospitals receive for a sale over a limited period to speed up the process and unlock the extra cash.
Ms May claimed the land sales would help raise £10bn to fund “the most ambitious programme on investment and buildings and technology the NHS has ever seen.”
Mr Ashworth warned: “With 48 hours to go until the general election the true scale of the secret Tory plan for cuts and closures across the NHS has been revealed.
“Every single day the Tories are in power hospitals are being left to crumble, staff are being let down, waiting lists are growing and patients are being denied the care they need and deserve.
“Let’s be clear: these new, secret Tory plans will only be stopped by electing a Labour government on Thursday.”
