Isn't there? Well since they got in, in 2010 we've had;
Introduction of zero hour contracts


Zero hour contracts have been around for decades. In hospitals they are called “bank” contracts. The rise of the Gig Economy has spurred their use, so next time you get a home delivery, or jump in an Uber then think about it.. Some people like zero hour contracts. If people want "proper" jobs then there are plenty of them out there.


500,000 public sector workers made redundant.

People employed in the public sector has increased year on year for a decade. ONS The number of NHS staff has increased year on year too, as has NHS funding.


And Corbyn has released the documents showing what Boris is up to with the NHS. As well as Trump demanding that any trade deal that's agreed has to have the NHS on the table.


Recommend you read said documents and understand their purpose. You may then see that Corbyn is making it up for political capital. The gullible are being spoon fed.

Zero hours contracts, although in use before 2010, were nowhere near as common as they are now.

And the NHS will definitely be on the table, Boris Johnson saying otherwise is a blatant lie.

BJ has repeatedly said that the NHS isn't for sale. But Donald Trump says it must form part of any trade deal. So it is for sale because there's no way in a million years Boris will walk away from a trade deal with the US after we leave the EU.

The problem is that the Tories have a long history of telling lies. That isn't about to change now.

Politicians lie, or tell untruths. Who would have thought a Labour government would have gone to war on a lie, eh?

Anyway, the public would not tolerate the NHS being "sold off", so it's not going to happen.

I AM WORKINGTON MAN! No, really, I am. Can't believe they put my little industrial town on the map, even Farage popped up for a visit!

I used to be Labour, but I may have to vote Tory, I feel voting Brexit party could be a wasted vote, and I do want to help keep Labour out. Plus the local Conservative candidate is a good friend of mine.

Labour will destroy the country with their free stuff for everybody, and I don't buy into the rubbish that the Cons will sell off the NHS, so meh, Cons it is, first time for everything.

Labour under Bliar took us to war in cahoots with the US on the basis of a pack of lies about supposed non existent WMDs.

Perhaps your memory needs jogging?

The BBC always has an interactive map that shows regions and individual constituencies.

But as the BBC is merely a propaganda voicebox for Labour Commies/Tory Establishment - depending on your personal viewpoint - I guess many here wouldn't use it.

A hung parliament is just as bad a scenario as a Corbyn victory or a Johnson landslide.....it will enable Sturgeon and Swinson to influence things.....we're doomed no matter what!

Vote for none of the above!

Exactly what I have done for the first time in my adult life, did not even bother to vote for any of the shower of idiots, worse blundering bufoons to be presented to the public EVER.

Well, the exit poll shows a nightmare for Labour. Total whitewash. An 86 seat majority for the Conservatives.
