AUSTERITY, food banks, zero hours and low paid wages in this country and the destruction of forests world-wide, which shall greatly affect future generations, is something that is happening on a daily basis.

The referendum came along and many people voted on the immigration issue relating to the panic about illegal people coming to this country.

This farce called Brexit followed and now we have two candidates fighting for the Prime Minister position.

One apparently wants to bring back fox hunting to entertain his Tory friends, while the other wants to make the rich even richer.

Isn’t it time the working class took some real interest in what is going on regarding the politics of this country.

Then we would have a chance to get a more competent and compassionate party in power.
