Remain Labour's economic analysis of the Labour manifesto in Business Insider 

"Jeremy Corbyn warned that his Brexit plans would 'devastate' his manifesto pledges and create a new age of 'Labour austerity’

 

This economic damage would stifle a Labour government and force it to "ditch a wide range of anti-austerity policies that could include schools, welfare and pensions, childcare and the NHS," Remain Labour said."
