 by . This election on 12th December 2019 is all about Brexit and which political party will in their opinion bring the best outcome for people of United Kingdom. But 650 members of Parliament cannot decide the fate of the people of United Kingdom, it is the people who have decided the fate by voting for Brexit and UK to leave the EU. Although this vote was campaigned on fear mongering, deceit and lies by a few politicians.

12th December polling will decide the actual mood of UK and which direction does UK want to head. Saying that I want to emphasise on some of the pressing issues which are being faced by UK and the world. This election should not just be about Brexit but other issues like the following:

  1. Climate Change, which is a bigger issue than Brexit
  2. Mental Health and NHS, which is a bigger issue than Brexit
  3. Fiscal Deficit, which is a bigger issue than Brexit
  4. Drugs and Knife Crime, which is a bigger issue than Brexit
  5. Education, which is a bigger issue than Brexit

I have only listed five points but there are several issues which have a far greater importance than Brexit. People need to know that what is going to affect them, their future generations in the time to come. For example, how many people know that there are 200,000 humans added to the world every day, which means 6 million humans a month and 72 million humans annually. Is planet earth capable of handling such an expansion. What is the new government going to do about this fact? Britain has ruled approximately 90% of the globe over time. Britain has great influence over the world and an example of that is the Commonwealth which has 53 nations as members. Will the new government take up this issue at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meet 2020 in Kigali, Rwanda?

I will be bringing out a series of questions in the run up to the elections on 12th December 2019. I will urge us as voters to ask our representative prospective parliamentary candidates about these questions, no matter which political party they are affiliated with in UK. But we as responsible citizens of UK should ask these questions and it is our fundamental right to ask questions.
