THE recent Question Time broadcast featuring Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn, Jo Swinson, and Nicola Sturgeon highlighted the appalling state of British politics.

If they are the political elite and the best the country has to offer then the future looks extremely bleak whatever the result may be and I, for one, am reluctant to vote for any of them.

However, I will fulfil my public duty and pray that Labour don’t win.
