The Labour/Conservative Choice on June 8th

For starters you are not voting, on June 8th, for Jeremy Corbyn or Theresa May or Tim Farron. You are voting for a political party, not an individual, they are just leaders of the parties you are actually voting for.

That said, on with the post.

This is not a post about my political opinion, or yours, this is just a post about what has happened and what might. Facts and conjecture based on said facts.

Under the Conservative government homelessness has increased, as has child poverty. On top of this our healthcare system has been underfunded and so our healthcare system is in decline. There has been a lack of affordable homes, a lack of societal aid for young people and young families. The cost of education, energy and even food has increased. The country and the opinions of its people have become increasingly divided.

The proposed Labour government will increase societal aid for young people and families, construct affordable homes, fund healthcare and lower the price of energy and education.

The Conservative government promotes austerity, they are very open about this. The result of austerity, the fact that it doesn't work, is easy to see. No one can rightly deny it because it is right in everybody’s face. So you can do something else or carry on with it. The Conservatives will carry on whilst Labour will try something different. It is often said the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again despite knowing it doesn't work so by definition is the Conservative party insane?

The fact of the matter is simple: the Conservative government has caused bad things to happen to our country and caused our country to regress whilst the Labour party will try something else.

So it's simple, vote Labour. Vote for houses, healthcare, energy and education - things that benefit everyone.
