It’s back to the future for general elections...
I AM 78 years old and have seen many general elections. Boris Johnson, when this week announcing the Tory manifesto, stated that it included ‘a vision for the future.’
Where is this future? In every manifesto in every general election this old chestnut is trotted out.
In all these years, little has improved significantly and we now see schools without the barest necessities with parents having to supply text books.
The NHS is in an appalling state, with what staff there is at breaking point.
The privatisation of transport – railways and buses – has largely proved to be a fiasco.
This ‘future’ never seems to arrive. Just look at the state the country is in currently. We need these benefits now – not in some imaginary future.
