12 May 2017 - UK General Elections: Labour Manifesto Leaked to the Press

Labour’s election manifesto has been “unanimously” agreed after the party held its “Clause V’ meeting that, according to its rules, must take place to sign off its plan for government.

The gathering, held at the Institute of Engineering and Technology in Westminster, took place after the entirety of the draft manifesto had been leaked to media the night before.

Party officials had gone to great lengths to keep the document secure; even shadow ministers had not been shown anything more than the pages relating to their policy briefs.

Labour manifesto pledges to restore Tom Baker as Doctor Who
(The Daily Mash, 11/05/2017)

Labour's manifesto promises to reverse decades of free-market mismanagement and return Tom Baker to his rightful position as Doctor Who.

The leaked manifesto claims the ‘Thatcherite’ Peter Davison era was a ‘betrayal of the working classes’, and that it, and all subsequent incarnations, would be declared invalid.

Jeremy Corbyn said: “There has only ever been one, true Doctor Who and we all know it.
