JEREMY CORBYN vowed yesterday to take on the unchecked power of banks and media barons if elected Labour leader.
The Islington North MP said that Rupert Murdoch’s empire would be broken up to dilute his media influence and banks would be forced to address Britain’s “gross inequalities.”
In an interview with the Financial Times, he also warned the corporate world that he would challenge high pay.
“I do think the salary levels and the bonus levels again have got to be looked at,” he said.
And Mr Corbyn hit back at claims that his leadership would split the party.
“I don’t think there is any appetite for people to walk away,” he said.
“The number of MPs making ‘noises off’ at the moment is actually quite small. A lot of MPs are looking to see what happens and what role they can fulfil.”
