Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn hit back at the budget during a visit to Dagenham.
He showed his support for the party’s mayoral candidate, Sadiq Khan, and GLA candidate, Unmesh Desai, in a speech outside the Civic Centre on Saturday.
Mr Corbyn said he had known Mr Desai for a long time and that he fought for “racism, justice and equality”.
He also spoke of the need to ensure permanent housing and the need for a “cleaner and better” city before criticising the government for introducing more cuts for the disabled.
“Iain Duncan Smith resigned last night,” he told the crowd.
“I think some other resignations ought to follow.”
Corbyn held a shadow cabinet meeting at the civic centre earlier this month to mark International Women’s Day.
