    I agree. Please vote Labour guys... I'm sadly under the voting age, and I'm in Wales so apparently me voting wouldn't be able to help Corbyn anyway. I don't know, I don't understand a whole lot about the political system but what I do know is that Labour need to win this election.

    Tomorrow's election day guys, please vote for Labour. Tories aren't funding the NHS or caring for the disabled. From what I know, Green are a nice party too, but I recommend voting for Labour because they're the only one who have a chance at winning besides the Conservatives.

    A boy had to sleep on the floor in the hospital recently because there weren't any beds. Boris Johnson didn't care much though https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/dec/09/refuses-to-look-at-picture-of-boy-forced-to-sleep-on-hospital-floor. He kept muttering things about investing in the NHS but I can see in his face that he's been put on the spot and doesn't care. And if they were investing in the NHS, why do we have so few resources? That's what Tories do to our country. From my perspective, Labour will give us better. I went to one of Jeremy Corbyn's speeches once and he seemed very gentle and thoughtful.

    I respect if you don't like or trust them, and to be honest I think all the parties have their bad or unpromising sides. But even if I didn't trust Labour, I think I'd view it as a lesser of two evils situation.

    I think labour could potentially do wonders for our public services and for people living in, or close to, poverty.

    But I'm worried by their plans to nationalise certain businesses and sectors. Taxpayers money would be used to buy businesses, and then any debt of the businesses are inherited  and paid off by the taxpayer as well. On top of that, if you still want to use these services you might still have to pay for them, even though your money has bought it and paid off any debt. 

    Nationalising whole sectors as well, i.e power or rail, removes competition so there's no competitive pricing or innovation anymore.

    I get what they're getting at though. They want to improve the quality and affordability of services. But the reason we're in austerity at the moment, i.e not spending a lot of money and letting the quality of things slip, is because we're in debt and we were spending money we didn't have. The Conservatives are trying to wipe that debt. So I can understand both sides of the argument.

    However you voted/ will vote today I hope everyone gets something they're happy with tomorrow! :)

    That's interesting. Who have you decided to vote for?

    I'm sure Labour aren't the greatest party either, but personally the NHS, climate change and poverty are some of the things I'm most worried about. I feel like Britain run by Labour will be a better place than Britain run by Conservatives. I wish the voting age was lower so people like me could vote... My family is poor and on benefits and I always worry a bit about money, now I'm particularly worried we could struggle if Labour doesn't win. Labour might bring some cons but I definitely wouldn't vote Conservatives myself, just because they're always lying and neglecting the country from my view.

    I agree, I hope whatever the result is nothing too bad will be happening :) I'm getting very tense waiting for the results!
