Subject: RE: BS: UK General election December 12 2019
The period between now and Dec 12 will be a very long time for Boris Johnson. And you can bet your bottom dollar that this Sunday morning the Tory Party will be praying fervently that there'll be no flu epidemic before the election. That would just about cause the NHS to implode and expose the shabby way it's been treated since the Tories took over, resulting in a lack of beds, understaffing, ballooning waiting lists and the disastrous state of A&E departments. My sister has been highlighting the terrible state of crumbling school buildings. These are Labour's strong points to emphasise in the campaign. They mustn't let the issues raised by the likes of the dreadful Nicky Morgan and co, important though they are, usurp the headlines at the expense of the real issues that face the country as a whole. Threats and abuse are far more to do with the unregulated culture of social media and a vicious us-and-them ethos whipped up by the right-wing press, not to speak of the rotten example set by Boris Johnson and his baying moronic friends in the Commons.
