‘If you are able to, then you should vote’

Our current prime minister is not doing very well. Coming off the back of COVID and what Boris Johnson did, he had a chance. The UK government could step up and do it and he hasn’t done that. If anything, we’ve ended up in more turmoil than we ever have been before with gas companies raising their prices, the cost of living crisis, and people freezing to death in their own homes.

My personal life is difficult because I’m still quite young and I don’t own a home. I don’t own much to my name. I think, for me, living with my mum and watching what it’s doing to my mum and how she can’t afford to currently live – I think that is what affects me the most. I don’t think the government is doing enough.

I am a big believer that you must always use your vote and everyone has a voice. I have the ability to use my voice in this situation; therefore, I should use it. The state of the world after what’s happened after Covid, I do think it’s more important now than ever that if you are able to, then you should vote.
