1. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader:
"We are 47 hours into the election campaign. The dividing lines in this election could not be clearer from the outset. It's the Conservatives, the party of privilege and the richest, versus the Labour Party. The Labour Party that's standing up for working people, to improve the lives of all. It's the establishment versus the people. It's our historic duty to make sure the people prevail."
2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader:
"Much of the media and the establishment are saying this election is a foregone conclusion. They think there are rules in politics which, if you don't follow by doffing your cap to the powerful people, accepting that things can't really change, then you can't win. But of course, they do not want us to win, because when we win it is the people, not the powerful, who win."
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader:
"That is why we, yes we, will prove the establishment experts wrong and change the direction of this election. Because the British people know that they are the true wealth creators, held back by a system rigged for the wealth extractors. Theresa May will insist that this is an election about Brexit. She will try to downplay the issues that affect people's lives every day and instead turn the election into an ego-trip about her own failing leadership and the machinations of the coming negotiations in Brussels. It is only Labour that will focus on what kind of country we want to have after Brexit. In the coming weeks, Labour will lay out our policies to unlock opportunities for every single person in this country."
4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader:
"The European Union negotiations are going on and we've set out our lines on negotiations. Primarily, it is about gaining and retaining tariff-free access to the European Market. We haven't threatened to turn Britain into an off-shore tax haven on the shores of Europe to undermine every European economy. We've said instead we want to work with them to have an agreed process by which we continue to trade with Europe. Because walking away and trading under World Trade Organisation conditions will mean that manufacturing industry in this country will be severely damaged. Every manufacturing enterprise in this country relies on imported materials from Europe or sales to Europe, and in some cases in complicated productions, the parts cross the channel several times as they're being fabricated, in the aircraft industry and others. It is an integrated and complicated production process. The idea that you can simply approach these negotiations by threatening to set up a tax haven and 'hell take the hindmost' to the rest of the people is simply not a sensible way of negotiating."
Facing steep odds and low popularity ratings, Britain's main opposition leader launched his election campaign on Thursday, painting himself as a populist outsider who will overturn a "rigged" political and economic system.
Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn said the June 8 election pitted "the establishment vs. the people" and insisted the result is not a foregone conclusion.
Labour trails a long way behind Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives in opinion polls, and many within the party believe 67-year-old socialist Corbyn is too left-wing to connect with voters.
In his first major speech of the campaign, Corbyn told supporters and journalists in London that May will make the election about Brexit and her "failing leadership", whereas the Labour Party will use the opportunity to "unlock opportunities for every single person in this country".
Addressing Brexit negotiations, Corbyn emphasised that the Labour Party's objective is not to create an "off-shore tax haven" out of Britain, but instead to work with European countries in order to arrive at a mutually beneficial trade agreement.
