McDonnell: 'People wanted to hear positivity'

John McDonnell said the people wanted to positivity.

Labour's predicted General Election surge is down to Jeremy Corbyn's positive message, according to John McDonnell.

The shadow chancellor said Theresa May had looked for a personal mandate from the election but is set to be "extremely damaged" by the result.

"I think what's changed is the political discourse," Mr McDonnell said.

"People wanted a positive debate. And what they got was quite a nasty campaign from the Tories, but a positive campaign from Jeremy.

"And I think they welcomed it."
