Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to launch European election manifesto in Medway

Jeremy Corbyn will pay a visit to the county this week to launch the Labour manifesto for the European elections.

The party leader will stop off in Medway in the coming days as voters prepare to go back to the ballot box on May 23 after the government confirmed it is unlikely to get an agreement on a Brexit deal before polling day.

His party is locked in talks with the government in a bid to reach an agreement on how Britain will leave the EU that will get through Parliament.

It comes after a bad week for the two main parties in the local elections nationally where the Conservatives lost more than 1,300 councillors and Labour more than 80, viewed as a voter reaction against their failure to deliver Brexit.

The picture was more mixed in Kent, where the Tories lost control of Swale and Folkestone and Hythe councils but Labour gained Gravesham council.
