“In a matter of weeks Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Johnson has been crowned Prime Minister by a dwindling, rightwing Tory membership, and with no mandate to govern our country is pushing us towards a cliff edge No Deal Brexit.
Whatever your views on Brexit a No Deal exit is at best a leap into the dark. With a reactionary right-wing Tory government at the helm, it would leave our community further scarred by decades of neglect at risk of more exploitation and suffering.
How can this Bullingdon Club posh boy, who has never had any financial worries, and has been given everything on a plate, possibly understand the issues that gnaw away at millions of people living in poverty in this country?
Let us wash this dreadful government away at a General Election and get back to building a country that cherishes our public institutions and invests in the future of our people.”
