With a general election coming up on 12th December, here’s some information about the main parties and their pledges.
The conservative party are split into two main groups: pro-brexit, and anti-brexit. Boris Johnson is part of the pro-brexit section, despite writing a huge article on why he thought brexit was a bad idea the day before the brexit referendum. In other words, he’s going along with the public. Right now, Boris is claiming to add more police to the streets and more money to schools and hospitals. ” [This election will be the] only way of getting brexit done.” Said Johnson after the Brexit deadline was delayed.
Labour claim that their manifesto is to tackle climate emergency, end food banks in Britain and to rewrite the rules of economy so that it works for everyone – not just billionaires. They pledge to deliver a million genuinely affordable homes and a million climate jobs across every region and nation in the UK. Under certain conditions, Labour will hold a second referendum on Brexit.
