Last quote by Jeremy Corbyn on Inequality

But we also have to recognise that there have been effective and serious attempts at reducing poverty in Venezuela, improving literacy and improving the lives of many of the poorest people. I gave the support of many people around the world for the principle of a government that was dedicated towards reducing inequality and improving the life chances of the poorest people. What's happened is the oil price has fallen obviously and the economy was overdependent on oil. And I make it very clear I think there should've been greater diversity at a time when there was a very high oil price.feedback

Last week the prime minister twice accused me of wanting to bankrupt Britain by borrowing money to fund investment. But as every businessperson knows, there is a world of difference between borrowing for capital spending and borrowing to fund the payroll and day-to-day trading or service delivery. It's quite simple – united we stand divided we fall. And united I believe this great party can do things together to achieve for the people that need Labour councils and, above all, need a Labour government and a society based on social justice and equality, not greed and inequality.feedback

One day we'll get into media discussions and debates which are about inequality and injustice in society – as you've kindly allowed me to do this morning – rather than political process, which absorbs itself into the mindset of a media world rather than world of poverty and injustice in our society.feedback

What we are also looking at is the inequality of the grotesque levels of difference between the average wages paid in our society and the sort of telephone-number salaries paid at the top end of it and we have growing levels of inequality on that. I think, certainly, the salaries that are paid to some footballers are simply ridiculous. I think some of the salaries paid to very high-earning top executives of companies are utterly ridiculous.feedback

We will be campaigning on all the things that matter. The inequality and poverty that exists in this country. The need to end the privatisation of our National Health Service. The need to give real hope and opportunity to young people all across this country. That is what Labour exists to do.feedback

I regret there have been resignations today from my shadow cabinet. But I am not going to betray the trust of those who voted for me – or the millions of supporters across the country who need Labour to represent them. One clear message from last Thursday's vote is that millions of people feel shut out of a political and economic system that has let them down and scarred our country with grotesque levels of inequality.feedback

Across England we had predictions we'd lose councils. We didn't [lose]. We hung on and we grew support in some places ... because our party is standing up against the grotesque levels of inequality in Britain.feedback
