Boris Johnson says Labour under Corbyn 'detest the profit motive'

"And you will see the price of it. on the pressures of our economy and the rights of people who work for those companies".

He wrote in comments splashed on the Telegraph's frontpage: "The tragedy of the modern Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn is that they detest the profit motive so viscerally-and would raise taxes so wantonly-that they would destroy the very basis of this country's prosperity".

Britons will go to the polls on December 12 after parliament agreed to an early election final week, looking for to finish three years of deep disagreement over Brexit that has sapped buyers' religion within the stability of the world's fifth largest financial system and broken Britain's worldwide standing.

Mr Watson also declined to apologise to Harvey Proctor, a Conservative Tory MP in the 1970s and 1980s and one of Beech's victims, but said he appreciated he was "hurt and angry".

Johnson said Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn hated wealth and was thus like Soviet leader Josef Stalin - who sent millions to their deaths in labor camps.

Referring to an investigation of Labour by Britain's top human rights body, van der Zyl said, "I know that he shares our horror that a creation of the last Labour Government, the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has launched a statutory investigation in to whether the current Labour party itself is institutionally antisemitic".

Most recently, he defied Mr Corbyn by calling for the party to back a new public vote before the country went to the polls in a general election.

"When the dust settles after the election, I hope that the party's current or future leaders will learn from his example that things can - and indeed must - change", she added. Britain goes to the polls on December 12.

"Come with us and we will get Brexit done whereas this guy wants nothing more than dither and delay", Johnson told the crowd. "I've done everything to confront it throughout my life, and will always do so", Corbyn told the Guardian. "An attack on a synagogue, an attack on a mosque, an attack on a church - an attack on a person walking down the street because they're perceived to be different from the rest of us - we simply can't tolerate it".

The concerns from several former Labour cabinet ministers, defence chiefs, and intelligence officials towards Corbyn's candidacy follow a signal by the Labour that he would scrap the UK's nuclear missile system Trident this April, as well as his plan to renegotiate Johnson's Brexit deal in a bid to retain negotiating power in European Union trade talks. Polls show the majority of British Jews consider Corbyn personally antisemitic and are planning to vote against him. And in March, a survey revealed that 87% of Jews view Corbyn as anti-Semitic. Thousands of cases of alleged hate speech against Jews have been recorded within Labour since 2015, when Corbyn was elected leader. And what do they have to do with Jeremy Corbyn?

Corbyn has labelled Johnson's economic plans "Thatcherism on steroids", in reference to the free-market, low-spending ideology of the late former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. He later said, "I was present when [a wreath] was laid, I don't think I was actually involved in it".
