Corbyn supports the controversial robin hood tax

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn backed the controversial financial transaction tax in a Remain rally for the party yesterday.

He said the levy was “a very sensible proposal I am sure everybody in this building would agree with”.

Also present at the rally was London mayor Sadiq Khan who opposed the tax.

He told Sky News: “I do not want a unilateral tax on businesses in our City, I am in favour of jobs, I am in favour of trade and investment.”

However, Corbyn retorted: “Sadiq and I will be having some very interesting discussions about it. I am sure he will come round to the idea. His whole campaign is about equality in London. It’s about equality and justice and is about people paying their share.”
