  1. All parties dont seem to be represented. I like many others are now confused about which way to vote. For me it will be none of the above, let me explain.
    Labour although Nationalisation would be great and looking after our NHS would be fantastic they want to continuously delay Brexit which the country voted for.
    Conservative I find it very difficult to believe anything they say as they have been caught out time and time again. No clear leaving plan in place even after three years.
    Liberal now they want to go completely against democracy and try to keep us in the EU, I voted but that is imaterial as the majority won the vote, out.
    Green Party, couldnt run the country due to their beliefs. Life is full of compromises and they dont. They are too focused on being green than allowing certain aspects of life to continue which would put our industry in a worse state than it is already.

    The country needs new thinking and career politicians dont fit the bill, it might work if they all worked together and stopped storytelling to the public. Between them they have successfully dismembered parliament. If they dont start working for the country people will not vote and we will be back to square one. We need to know their policies, yes but we need to know what is feasable, what will leaving the EU mean to the common man, what are their intentions on how to fix it. We dont want Jackanory.
