  1. Tuesday night recap

    If you're still with us (well done!). Now's the time for a late-night recap. 

    It was a day that brought a glimpse of summer as Labour bared to us their plans, should they be elected to power. The headline-grabbing lines were:

  2. Who's behind Corbyn's Momentum?

    Jeremy Corbyn out with supporters

    Writing in the New Statesman, Anoosh Chakelian, looks at whether Jeremy Corbyn's supporters are actually out and about campaigning for their man and picking up the phone to encourage people to vote Labour. 

    And she looks at who in the Labour Party - newbies or long-time supporters - are the one's openly giving the Labour leader their backing.

    He goes on to say he "makes no apologies" for plans to scrap university tuition fees.

    The policy is "a massive step forward - people feel they are being priced out of going to university and we'll put a stop to that", he adds.

    He concludes the interview by saying the polls have narrowed. 

    "We want to win this general election. We're up for the fight."

  4. Corbyn's gamble: Could policies win Middle England's votes?

    Manifesto moments are those times in any election campaign when voters think now I'm going to sit up and listen. 

    They would have heard a very clear choice between him and what the Conservatives are putting on the table.

    His 21st Century brand of Old Labour, if you like - more tax, more spending and more borrowing.

    The question is how many people will believe him when he makes that offer? How many will find that appealing when it is a real departure from the direction Labour has been travelling in in recent years.

    In his view, the irritations, the anger and the anxiety of Britain in 2017 do mean that voters are ripe and ready for something that sounds very different.

    He's encouraged and enthused by the crowds that seem to greet him almost wherever he goes, but there's a gamble in all of this. Crowds don't always translate into huge votes at the ballot box. 

    And remember, not so long ago, in 2015, Ed Miliband made a few little tiptoes to the left of where Labour had been, and he lost that election. Jeremy Corbyn is making a much bigger step in the same direction.

    It's a gamble whether the voters of Middle England are really ready for the policies he believes will be popular.

    And if you need a reminder of how big the challenge will be, one of his biggest supporters - Len McCluskey, the boss of Unite union - suggested to a website tonight it would be extraordinary if Labour was able to do it.
