Many people are unsure of who to vote for. I am an active member of the Labour Party so I have no such problems but I want to urge you who to vote AGAINST.
This is a forum for people with a potentially disabling illness - we are the very people who will be most affected by the welfare cuts that the Tories have planned for the next two years. I spent my working life in the public sector, paid my taxes, did my bit for more than 25 years. Through no fault of my own I can no longer work and rely on welfare. If the proposed cuts go ahead I will see my income slashed and if my mum dies soon I’ll have to pay the bloody bedroom tax as well!
Please please don’t let these “people” back in power. If you can’t decide who to vote FOR at least know who to vote AGAINST.
