AND – WE TURNED IT DOWN

On Thursday the United Kingdom goes to the polls to Vote in what is perhaps the most important General Election of my lifetime.

On Friday we will have a new Government so this is my take on what it might be like if the people of the UK actually do vote in accordance with the opinion polls..

We had the opportunity to reduce homelessness

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to compensate WASPI women

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to protect and save the NHS

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity for our people to earn a living wage

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to provide social housing for future generations

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to reduce class sizes and improve our children’s education

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to support the older generation in their retirement years

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to increase policing and security on our streets

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to reduce poverty and the need for food banks

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to make multi-national business and millionaires pay a fair share of taxes

And – We turned it down

We had an opportunity to prevent essential services continuing to rip us off with poor services and increased pricing

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to take hundreds of thousands of children out or temporary accommodation and out of poverty

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to condemn racism in all of its forms

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to protect the vulnerable and those with disabilities

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to protect and care for our armed services and essential public servants who suffer because of the experiences they have had in protecting and caring for us

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to protect and improve the environment for future generations to come

And – We turned it down

We had the opportunity to hold self-serving, self-interest politicians to account

And – We turned it down

So when any other nation around the world commit or are perceived to commit cruelty and atrocities against their own people… just remember

WE THE UNITED KINGDOM HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEMONSTRATE WE WERE BETTER THAN THAT AND BETTER THAN THEM

AND – WE TURNED IT DOWN
