The Labour leader is expected to say the existing system has delivered a ‘brutal and less caring’ society
Jeremy Corbyn will use his flagship conference speech to promise a “new common sense” model for British life that will overturn 30 years of liberal free market economics.
The leader will set out policies to pull up the foundations of the existing model, in place since Margaret Thatcher reshaped Britain in the 1980s and adhered to by Labour until Mr Corbyn came to office.
In particular, he will point to the Grenfell Tower disaster as a “tragic monument” to a model of government that has become “brutal and less caring” over the last three decades.
In its place, he will propose a new system with an empowered state, nationalised utilities, billions in extra funding for health and education services, curbs on corporate excess and tax rises for the wealthiest.
Mr Corbyn will then claim Labour is “ready for government” today and will demand Theresa May and her Cabinet “pull yourself together or make way” for his party, following a week of Conservative cabinet splits over Brexit and setbacks in Brussels.
