Jeremy Corbyn has revealed what his opening gambit would have been if he was elected prime minister of the United Kingdom.
Speaking to The News Agents podcast, the former Labour leader said he would have pledged to end homelessness the moment he took the keys to Number 10.
“‘Today, rough sleeping [and] homelessness ends. There will be no more homeless people in this country. The state will provide.”
He made the revelation after figures showed at least 271,000 people are currently homeless in England, of which some 2,447 people are believed to be sleeping rough.
