As Britain goes to the polls today, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told the country to “vote for hope” and promised to “save our NHS” if the party got into government.
Corbyn called on voters to back Labour in today’s election in order to end a decade of “cruel” austerity and offer Britain hope for the future.
He said he “feels the pain” of millions of people trying to get by and is determined to make the country a fairer place.
And he made a heartfelt promise to protect the NHS after further stories emerged this week of desperate families struggling to get treatment from the struggling health service.
In his final interview before polling day, Corbyn revealed what ‘put the fire in his belly’ as he appealed to undecided voters to back him to be the next Prime Minister.
“I feel the pain of the people I represent, the pain of trying to bring up children in a small overcrowded flat, and wanting them to do well and wanting them to achieve at school,” he said.
“I think of the people saying they’ve got three children with quite a wide age gap sharing a bedroom, one wants to play music, one wants to do their homework, one wants to play with Lego on the floor.
Unlike other parties, Labour have run a positive campaign, based around what it will do to improve society if elected, rather than engaging in dishonest personal attacks.
