‘Is there free beer as well?’ Jeremy Vine ridicules Corbyn’s election ‘giveaways’

Mr Vine listed broadband, tuition fees, prescriptions, hospital parking, dental check-ups and rail travel for under 16s as things Labour planned to make free. The TV presenter then jokingly added beer to the list. The Labour Party leader did not seem to see the funny side and instead explained why free broadband for all was a sensible proposal. 

Mr Corbyn said: “I sat down last Monday with a group of WASPI women in Derbyshire and I asked each of them in a room, about 30 of them, how much they had lost as a result of this.

“It was between £30,000-£50,000 each.

“They were very upset and very hurt by the way they have been treated.

“We have a moral obligation to pay.”

Mr Vine said: “When it was announced it is the opposition’s job to point out what the government is doing and Labour were in opposition and they failed in the mid-90s to say what the government was doing.

“You didn’t campaign on it, you didn’t mention it.”

Mr Corbyn replied: “We have made it very clear that this morale debt will be prepared and we will do it.”

Mr Vine said: “You have promised a lot of giveaways.

“Free broadband, free tuition fees, free prescriptions, free hospital parking, free dental check-ups, free rail travel to under 16s, Free beer?

“Have I missed any out there?

“It’s a lot, isn’t it?”

The Labour Party leader responded: “They are all sensible proposals.

“Broadband across the whole country will mean communities that don’t have any access to broadband at the moment will get it.

“It will mean that remote areas of the country that don’t have broadband at the moment will probably get the business investment they don’t get now because no company wants to move there.”

According to the latest MRP poll, the Tories will end up with a total of 359 seats, followed by Labour with 211 and the Lib Dems in third with 13 seats.

The results will be particularly devastating for the Labour Party if they manifest, seeing its seat share drop from 262 seats in the 2017 election, a 51-seat loss.
