"We respect the result of the referendum, but there still has to be an economic relationship with Europe".

"But of course those people don't want us to win".

He added: "Walking away and trading under World Trade Organisation conditions will mean the manufacturing industry in this country would be severely damaged".

"How dare they crash the economy with their recklessness and greed, and then punish those who had nothing to do with it?" he said, referring to the 2007-9 financial crisis.

"I don't play by their rules and if a Labour government is elected on June 8 we won't play by their rules" either, he said to loud cheers from the audience gathered in Westminster on Thursday afternoon.

She has promised "strong and stable leadership" as Britain begins talks on ending its 43-year-old membership of the European Union, which are likely to be tough.

The party's policies, including those on Brexit, will be laid out in further detail in Labour's manifesto in the coming weeks.

"I don't think he'd be a particularly effective Prime Minister".

Controversial business figures like Mike Ashley of Sports Direct, Sir Philip Green, Southern Rail and tax-avoiding multinationals should be "worried" about the prospect of a Labour government, said Mr Corbyn.

"It is wealth that should belong to the majority and not the tiny minority".

He vowed: "We will no longer allow those at the top to leech off of those who bust their guts on zero-hours contracts or those forced to make sacrifices to pay their mortgage or their rent".

"Compare their lives with the multinational corporations and the gilded elite who hide their money in the Cayman Islands because the Conservatives are too morally bankrupt to take them on", he said.

Asking corporates, tax dodgers and bankers to be afraid, "be very afraid", if Labour formed the next government, Corbyn said, "It is these rules that have allowed a cosy cartel to rig the system in favour of a few powerful and wealthy individuals and corporations".

In a speech in London, Mr Corbyn will say: "Much of the media and Establishment are saying this election is a foregone conclusion".

Despite Labour's poor opinion poll ratings, Mr Corbyn pointed to the fact that he was given a 200/1 chance of becoming Labour leader in 2015.
