The former Chancellor of the Exchequer told Nick Ferrari Labour’s leaked manifesto is “crazy”.

Labour’s manifesto for the 2017 General Election was leaked last night.

It’s policies, including re-nationalisation of key industries, are being described as a throwback to the 1970s and the most left-wing manifesto since the one presented by Michael Foot’s Labour party in 1983.

Speaking to the former Chancellor of the Exchequer under Mrs Thatcher, Lord Lawson, Nick asked, how do Corbyn and Foot compare?

“I was in the House of Commons during Michael Foot’s time, and he was a political and intellectual giant compared to Jeremy Corbyn.”

The 1983 manifesto was dubbed by Labour MP Gerald Kaufman as “the longest suicide note in history”. Lord Lawson painted the 2017 one in stark terms, calling it a “crazy far-left, old-fashioned, socialist manifesto”, while he described Jeremy Corbyn as “the most incompetent party leader I’ve ever come across”.
