Critics say the manifesto evokes the party's 1983 offering, described then by a Labour lawmaker as "the longest suicide note in history" for helping the Conservatives win, and the ruling party questioned its funding plans.Lagging the Conservatives by about 20 points, Corbyn said his manifesto, which also included scrapping university tuition fees and ending cuts to the National Health Service, was costed and accused the Conservatives of stepping back in time by backing fox hunting and new selective schools.Alongside its manifesto, Labour also detailed how it would pay for spending commitments worth almost 50 billion pounds ($60 billion), through hikes in corporation tax, higher income tax for the top 5 percent of earners and new levies.
