  • Jeremy Corbyn: Conservatives creating a 'war between generations'

A Press Association analysis of posts from the main official accounts between May 9 and May 16 suggests social media users are now responding more positively to Labour - with posts on the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn pages on Twitter and Facebook averaging more shares and positive reactions across both platforms than any other party.

The boost for Mr Corbyn's party comes amid a gradual rise in Labour's polling numbers since the start of the campaign.

Kezia Dugdale has rejected the view of union boss Len McCluskey, who said he can not see Labour winning the General Election. I'm full optimism for what Labour can achieve.

Labour is the first of the major parties to publish its manifesto ahead of the June 8 general election, the BBC reported.

Labour posts about policy issues increased slightly from 20% of the total to 24%, and posts mentioning either of the party leaders also rose marginally from 19% to 22%.

Many in the Labour Party will also view Mr MCluskey's gloomy forecast as a lowering of expectations so the Labour leader can cling to power after 8 June until a younger left-wing successor can be found.

"I believe that if Labour can hold on to 200 seats or so it will be a successful campaign", he said. You've got the guy.

Mr Corbyn was quoted as saying earlier in the campaign that he would stay on whatever the result of the election, citing the mandate he has from his leadership victories in 2015 and 2016.

Ms Dugdale was speaking ahead of a major campaign speech in Glasgow, where she will appeal to voters in Scotland who backed remaining in the European Union and the UK.

"But our votes are being hijacked by Tory and SNP politicians who want to use how we voted in referendums and general elections to assume something about the kind of future we want to see".

Labour is defending its plans to exert state control over key utilities amid uncertainty over what the final price tag will be and how it will be paid for. Labour will transform our energy, water and mail markets so that they work for consumers.

The party has insisted its plans are fully costed - raising taxes on big business and higher earners by £48 billion to pay for its programme to increase spending on education, health and other public services.
