A LABOUR MP has said he doesn't want billionaires in Britain as Jeremy Corbyn laid out hard-Left election plans to hammer the rich.

Lloyd Russell-Moyle, Brighton Kemptown MP, took the stance as he said the UK economy should not "work" for the rich.

"I don't think that anyone in this country should be a billionaire," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

The comments came as Mr Corbyn effectively declared class war by vowing to tackle "corrupt" business and ramp up public spending.

Launching Labour's election campaign, he laid out a platform of tax hikes for the better-off and nationalisation of key industries.

He contrasted his union-backed party with the Tories who represented the "super-rich", saying only the Left would take on the establishment's 'vested interests'.

Speaking on Radio 5's Emma Barnett show, Mr Russell-Moyle said: "I don't think that anyone in this country should be a billionaire. I think we should have a system where everyone is able to live well and wealthy."

Pressed on how that system would work, he said: "I think you do it by enabling everyone to be very wealthy to be able to profit from the gains of their work and their labour and make sure the profits are reinvested into communities, not just sucked up by one or two people…

"There are some people who play by the rules and play very well, but there is a good proportion of people who don't and we know who they are."

When Barnett questioned why people should be prevented from aspiring to be billionaires he said: "I don't want this country to work for billionaires. I want it to work for ordinary and normal people."

After previously pledging that he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than extend Brexit beyond October 31, Mr Johnson said today that it was Mr Corbyn's fault the UK's withdrawal from the EU had been put back until January 31.

"Today should have been the day that Brexit was delivered and we finally left the EU," he said.

"But, despite the great new deal I agreed with the EU, Jeremy Corbyn refused to allow that to happen - insisting upon more dither, more delay and more uncertainty for families and business."

However, Mr Corbyn said: "We need to take it out of the hands of the politicians and trust the people to have the final say."
