Jeremy Corbyn has insisted only “winning the election” will be a good result for Labour, as polls show his party closing the gap on Theresa May’s stuttering campaign.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, the Labour leader brushed aside claims he is ready to merely settle for an increased vote share or even defeat as long as Labour retains most of its MPs.

Instead the more confident Labour leader told how increasing numbers of people were coming out to campaign for his party, which he said is also receiving a growing number of donations.
