CAMPAIGNING in Firth Park, Sheffield, yesterday morning, the Mike Driver Vote WRP campaign said, ‘We got great support from everyone, with many agreeing with our policies.’
Liz Collins 19, looking for work said, ‘I was thinking of not voting because they all seem the same – plus I don’t want the Tories to win. However, now I’m going to vote WRP.’
Graham, Liz’s older brother chipped in saying, ‘They don’t give a monkey’s about the working class. I’ve spent five years trying to get a job and only just got one in rail network. I’m disgusted by the extremist attack in Manchester. These attacks are still going on everywhere. Theresa May stopped the campaigning in order to gain points and remain in power.’
Kiran and her mother Faridah came to the table and read the policies on our election poster.
Kiran said, ‘Theresa May is maintaining the class divide – she will support the middle and upper classes at the expense of the working class.
‘For example, although you can’t take away from education, the Tories are going to replace school lunches with 25p breakfast instead. It’s exhausting enough for adult teachers, but its taking away necessary nourishment for children. It’s worse than ridiculous. Parents also are going to feel more pressure.’
