Britain's Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, waves to supporters at an election campaign event in Church House, London Thursday April 20, 2017. "We want the full tax return of medium and large corporations to be published so everyone can see what is going on".

"Primarily, it's about getting and retaining tariff-free access to the European market".

She said the country now has a "unity of purpose" and a desire for the government to "get on" with implementing Brexit and "making a success of it".

Labour MP John Woodcock openly slammed Jeremy Corbyn in a scathing Facebook post.

'Theresa May has given us an opportunity (by calling the snap General Eection) ... but to use that opportunity we need to cooperate as parties of opposition who don't want that Tory future'.

He said that the Party is facing its toughest challenge since the 1930s and polls show that Mr Corbyn has just 15 per cent support from the electorate.

"Our position hasn't changed and we have laid out our six tests for any Brexit deal", she said.

His personal reservations about European Union were known, but the party's continuing vagueness is likely to lead voters to other parties that have a clearer stand.

"We've set out our lines on negotiation".

The Party has been facing the hard task of securing votes from those who did not vote for Brexit in last year's referendum.

The party's policies, including those on Brexit, will be laid out in further detail in Labour's manifesto in the coming weeks.

He singled out Mike Ashley, Sports Direct owner and Sir Philip Green who faced severe criticism from Corbyn of the BHS pension scandal.

Ms Sturgeon said that Labour's lack of credibility had raised the prospect of an "unfettered, out of control Tory government", which she claimed would do serious damage to Scotland.

"It is wealth that should belong to the majority and not the tiny minority".

Corbyn dismissed the view held by some commentators that a Conservative victory in the upcoming election was a foregone conclusion.

"Instead of the country's wealth being hidden in tax havens, we will put it in the hands of the people of Britain, as they are the ones who earned it".

However, Emily Thornberry, the Shadow Foreign Secretary, played down suggestions new taxes might be introduced at this level, saying she understood why "many people" on this salary might feel they were "not rich".

Despite Labour's poor opinion poll ratings, Mr Corbyn pointed to the fact that he was given a 200/1 chance of becoming Labour leader in 2015.

He made clear Labour's manifesto would be "fully costed and will be all accounted for and paid for".
