Lord Heseltine labels Labour manifesto 'lunatic'

Former Conservative Deputy Prime Minister Lord Heseltine spoke to Good Morning Britain about his Remain campaign, as he insisted he “could never support a Labour candidate that is in support of Jeremy Corbyn and a lunatic manifesto.”

He said: “Let us be quite clear, the simplistic solutions which are on offer are not going to happen. Jeremy Corbyn is not going to be Prime Minister, you know it, everybody knows it. Indeed, the only real issue is whether he’ll even be the leader of the Labour Party by Christmas. There is no way Jo Swinson is going to be Prime Minister, we all know that. So one has to work out what you think will be the likely outcome of the election."

Lord Heseltine added: "My guess is, there’s a very high chance, no more, that there’ll be no overall control. In that case, the Parliament will produce perhaps a temporary government, which in my view can coalesce only on one thing, which is the need for a second referendum, that is what I want because I think the British people, given the choice today in the light of the facts, will vote to Remain.”

Nicky Morgan challenged over '50,000 new nurses' Tory pledge

Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan defended the Conservative manifesto pledge that there will be 50,000 more nurses in 10 years, despite figures suggesting 19,000 will be retained staff.

Asked by Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain how it is ‘more’ when 19,000 of the 50,000 nurses will come from keeping nurses the NHS already has, Nicky Morgan said: “Because the 50,000 more is exactly what it says. In 10 years’ time there will be 50,000 more nurses in our NHS, which is obviously good news for patients and their families.”

Pushed that they are ‘recounting’ existing nurses she said: “No, what we’re saying is, as part of making sure that in 10 years’ time there are 50,000 more nurses, like any employer - and of course the NHS is a huge employer - retaining your highly-skilled staff is a key part of your workforce strategy.”
