A Thought From One News Page On The UK Electionby

One News Page caters to a worldwide audience of readers, and it is therefore important that we speak to as many different nations and peoples as possible – and this week, the UK will go to the polls in what will likely be the most important democratic vote in the country’s recent history. Brexit, too, was ground-breaking – but the outcome of this poll will not only decide who will discuss the mandate for leaving the European Union, but how.

Britain has been at the forefront of the global media’s attention for a few weeks now, having experienced horrendous tragedies in the form of terror attacks in both Manchester and London. It, too, has been under the spotlight for a fascinating election campaign that was announced at very short notice. Theresa May, leading the Conservatives, called a snap election just weeks prior, encouraging people to go to the polls to decide on how the country will be run for the next five years. Jeremy Corbyn, who has been regarded as the outsider in the election campaign thus far, has appeared to gain considerable support from the working class and those who feel May is not the right choice to lead Brexit. On the other side of the coin, Corbyn’s stance on terrorism and defence in general may not have played to those people who feel the need for greater action against tragic killings. It will be a choice that defines a generation – we mean no hyperbole – as both Conservative and Labour parties – as well as the Liberal Democrats and Greens – propose big changes for the economy and safety of the nation.

One News Page’s stance is thus – no matter whom you choose to vote for tomorrow, if you are affected by any of the issues discussed by the major parties or have the right to do so – it is important that you make your voice heard. Every vote in this election will count – and if you have the right to do so, and you are empowered to side with any of the manifestoes launched this spring, it only takes a few minutes. The turnout at these elections is changing for the better – and while young people are thought to be more engaged than ever this time around, it is important that they exercise their right.

No matter who wins – or loses – this week, One News Page will be here to give you the breakdown and any news as and when it occurs.
