Last quote by Jeremy Corbyn on Inequality

Wide participation in policy making leads to more support for the policies we get, leads us to that movement that will bring about the end of this government but – beyond that – the end of the system of inequality and injustice in our society. I acknowledge that the Tories have a woman leader but their policies have actually hurt women a lot. The unbelievable and disgusting and disgraceful levels of abuse that women receive in public life is unacceptable – from anybody, to anybody – it has got to stop. All women who represent our party deserve our unqualified support.feedback

Low pay blights the lives of huge and growing numbers in our country and fuels widening inequality. The government's re-branding of the minimum wage to the national living wage hasn't dealt with the real problems of low pay and rising cost of living. That's why Labour will raise the legal minimum wage for all to at least £10 an hour by 2020, giving more than five and a half million people a pay rise in the process. Labour's real living wage will immediately boost the incomes and opportunities of more than 20 per cent of the workforce, especially in sectors such as retail, care and hospitality.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
