While watching the Tories tear themselves apart over membership of the EU, Mr Corbyn has delivered a strong argument for staying in the EU.

He says being in Europe has ensured that 26 million workers in Britain benefit from being entitled to 28 days of paid leave and a limit to how many hours they can be forced to work; over eight million part-time workers have equal rights with full-time colleagues; over one million temporary workers have the same rights as permanent workers; 340,000 women every year have guaranteed rights to take maternity leave.

If austerity is biting into our lives now, it isn’t anything like what it will be like if the UK exits the EU.
