 by . I will urge my fellow voters to think before you take that leap of faith to vote on 12th December and put your confidence in 650 members of House of Commons to determine your, your children and elder’s future.

Think Local, Be National

I will like to begin by the saying “health is wealth” when you think about who to cast your vote in favour of in this election, think about what happened when you called your GP for an appointment. What happened when you went to the A&E of your local NHS hospital. Think about why some of the local NHS hospitals have been closed. Think about Social care which you or your elders have needed.

Climate is going to be the most important for us if we want to lead a healthy life. Whether its pollution, deforestation, increase in temperate both at the land and sea. Give it a thought why is fresh food expensive whereas processed food is cheaper. Also think how leaders of two political parties disregarded the debate on climate change by not showing up to the event.

Education is one of the most important pillars of any community. Give it a thought, has the classroom size in your local community school increased or decreased. Have the after-school activities increased or decreased? What has been done to improve and introduced in the education system to bring it to world standards.

Drugs and Knife crime have been dominant in the news in the past. Think about the police numbers which have been reduced in your local area and community. Think about all the security issues which have arisen in the local areas whether it is in a form of any violence or any other offenses.

Transport which is an important aspect of your lives should make you think, what has been done to improve the local transport of your areas. Have the roads, transportation systems and trains been given any emphasis and improved.

I’m urging you to think local because your local MP will represent you in the Parliament. When a policy has failed at the national level the local government is blamed for its implementation whether it is about policing the streets or education. You need to think whether the MP you are voting for will be able to question the government in this regard.

If you are an immigrant in this country, the politics of the country you originate from doesn’t affect any of the things I have mentioned above or the politics of the UK. Don’t let people divide your vote based on the political situation of any other country.

Religion is a personal thing to a community which should not be politicised for votes. Dividing people of the basis of religion is dividing the country.

I’m urging people to unite because there are forces that are dividing you for their own gains. Think about how you can unite, defeat these forces, help your local community and your local government to improve your daily life. United we stand, divided we Fall.

Yes, the most important aspect of this election is Brexit, which is going to decide your, your children and your elder’s future. When you go to vote think of all these things because Brexit or no Brexit all these issues will be affected in some shape or form. We are the greatest nation of earth, don’t let the sun go down in the British Empire.
