General election 2017: Tory 'wobble' over social care? – live updates

All the day’s campaign news, as polls show a dip in the Conservatives’ lead and Jeremy Corbyn seeks to shore up support among older voters 11.11am BST Here’s PA’s first take on Damian Green’s appearance on the Marr programme. "You don't understand capitalism.""You certainly do!"WATCH John McDonnell and Damian Green in angry TV spathttps://t.co/sdAlstutf0 pic.twitter.com/CzxRnCnMAeDamian Green insists there will be no social care U-turn.

Let's see. #backlash 11.03am BST Asked about Unite boss Len McCluskey’s claim that winning 200 seats would represent a success for Labour, Corbyn said: “Len was thinking out loud, I believe. I haven’t spoken to him before or since.” He added: “We’re campaigning to win this election. We are mobilising a lot of people to win this election. Large numbers of people who have never voted before are registering to vote. They are having a conversation about the kind of society we are and the kind of direction in which we go. I think it is about time we had that conversation and I’m happy to be part of it, and I’m enjoying it.” Continue reading...

Close your eyes and believe in your strong and stable Supreme Leader | John Crace

Theresa May launches her manifesto detailing her plans for the future of her Britain. Forward together, thenA woman dressed as a Dalek with a Theresa May face mask joined the protest outside the converted mill in Halifax as the Supreme Leader’s five-car motorcade pulled into the parking lot. She didn’t look much like the original. The Maybot has far less personality. And is all the more terrifying because of it. Head down and expressionless, she dashed for a side entrance.Later than planned because the Conservative battle bus had broken down – someone, somewhere would pay heavily for that – the cabinet filed into the front two rows. The men were identically dressed in white shirts and blue ties and had the rictus smiles of the condemned. Boris Johnson and Philip Hammond took up the rear and sat closest to the aisle. Last in, first out. The campaign slogan of Forward Together, which had been nicked from Margaret Thatcher’s 1980 Tory party conference, didn’t necessarily apply to them. Continue reading...

Theresa May’s social care system is a lottery. Just hope you’re not unlucky | Polly Toynbee

The Tory manifesto pledge takes a bold step in raising money from elderly home-owners, but there are fairer ways to fund this, as Labour has shown in the past‘No death tax!” the chancellor, Philip Hammond, proclaimed before the election campaign began. But here comes exactly that – and a very good thing too, as the Tory manifesto recoups the cost of care from property after death. Social care is in crisis, leaving half a million frail old people with no care at all, while others get notoriously perfunctory 15-minute home visits or often squalid residential care. Related: Tory manifesto: more elderly people will have to pay for own social care Continue reading...

The Guardian view on the economy: it’s bad | Editorial

It’s becoming slowly apparent that modern-day Britain suffers from poor productivity and a system where owners of capital accumulate faster gains than workers. Best to call an election before too many people notice“You’ve never had it so bad” has rarely been a good election-winning pitch. There’s a good reason why governing parties are usually reluctant to go to the country if voters are getting poorer: when they do, they lose. Historical precedent therefore suggests Theresa May is taking a gamble by holding an election on 8 June. As the latest labour market statistics show, the 2017 general election will be fought with prices rising faster than pay. This is highly unusual. On average, wages adjusted for inflation have risen by 1.5% a year since the second world war. In years ahead of an election they have increased by 3%. The last prime minister to fight an election against a backdrop of falling living standards was Gordon Brown in 2010, and he had no choice. Mrs May is fighting an election at a time of her own choosing even though annual inflation of 2.7% and annual earnings growth of 2.1% fulfil Mr Micawber’s definition of unhappiness.Philip Hammond says something will turn up. The chancellor today played down the fall in real incomes as an aberration caused by a temporary spike in inflation, but this argument doesn’t really stand up to serious scrutiny. The unemployment rate was last this low in 1975, at which time the annual inflation rate was 10 times as high as its current rate, and wages were growing at 30% a year. The really remarkable feature of the economy is the weakness of earnings, especially at a time when the percentage of people in work is close to 75%, the highest since modern records began. Only in two years in the past decade have real wages risen, and then only because inflation was unusually low as a result of the collapse of oil prices. The real average weekly wage is lower than it was in 2007, marking the worst decade for earnings since the Napoleonic wars in the early 19th century. Continue reading...

Groundhog May: we're all trapped in Theresa's campaign time loop | Marina Hyde

May and Hammond’s press conference revealed nothing new – except that their relationship is anything but strong and stable• General election 2017 - latest updatesTo watch Theresa May and Philip Hammond conduct a joint press conference is to be made powerfully aware of one thing: their chemistry is deader than Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s in Eyes Wide Shut. Let’s face it, that wasn’t just dead; it was at a fairly advanced stage of decomposition. And it’s all a bit dental records with Theresa and Phil, too, with the PM declining two opportunities to say she’d be keeping Hammond as her chancellor after the election.It was an acute awkwardness that will not have escaped Hammond, whose nervous laughter at questions referring to his swearing rows with No 10 and the general breakdown of their relationship was not entirely convincing. “Media tittle-tattle is just that,” he insisted, “media tittle-tattle.” Continue reading...

General election 2017: Theresa May refuses to confirm Hammond will remain chancellor after election - politics live

His words were taken out of context, he said.My comments were part of a conversational piece which have been slightly taken out of context because it was done on the basis of ‘if the polls are to be believed’.

Премьер-министр Великобритания Мэй: доходы британских пенсионеров будут повышаться

Премьер-министр Великобритании Тереза ​​Мэй сказала в среду, что пенсионные выплаты будут продолжать расти, если ее партия выиграет выборы 8 июня. Впрочем, она не повторила обещание, сделанное ее предшественником, а именно, повышать выплаты как минимум на 2,5% каждый год. С июня 2010 года в Великобритании государственная пенсия повышалась в зависимости от роста средних доходов и роста инфляции, но не менее чем на 2,5% в год - это так называемый "тройной замок", разработанный для получения одобрения со стороны пожилых британцев, которые, как правило, голосуют в большом количестве на всеобщих выборах. "Безусловно, что при консервативном правительстве доходы пенсионеров будут продолжать расти", - сообщила Мэй парламенту, когда ее спросили, будет ли она придерживаться "тройного замка". Однако, она не уточнила, на сколько она планирует увеличить пенсионные выплаты. Министр финансов Филип Хаммонд на прошлой неделе заявил, что проблема бедности пенсионеров была устранена. На фоне этого усилились предположения, что правительство может отказаться от политики "тройного замка" в предстоящем манифесте. Нынешняя политика подверглась критике со стороны межпартийной комиссии законодателей, которые сказали, что она "по своей природе неустойчива" и несправедлива по отношению к молодому поколению.
