Letter: Let’s not have a one issue election

Let's not focus just on Brexit during the election
Let's not focus just on Brexit during the election

This election is about more than the Brexit debate. It’s about so many other things.

Our health: how the NHS is struggling to give us the treatment we need. Our children’s education: the funding gap between what schools need and what they actually get.

The housing crisis: so many people can’t find somewhere to live that they can afford.

The environment: how many people are suffering from air pollution, how we can keep up with our energy needs without spoiling the planet. Jobs: lots of people are working in jobs that won’t pay their everyday bills.

Let’s not have a one-issue election. Let’s ask the politicians how they’re going to answer all these questions about our everyday lives.
