"I'm struck by how much people want to move on from Brexit"

CONSERVATIVE Party candidate Laura Farris says she has been “struck by how much people want to move on from Brexit” while campaigning on the doorsteps. 

She added: “Many I’ve spoken to support the Prime Minister’s deal and the Conservative focus on health, education and the environment.

“Beyond the politics, I’ve had a warm personal reception too.

“As a working mum of two young children, with a real love of this area, I understand pressures of daily of life and I will work hard to represent the whole community across towns and villages.

 “I’ll keeping on fighting for every vote. This is an election that really counts.”

    Would that be the same focus that the Tories have had on health, education and environment over the last 9 years when those areas have been systematically targeted by austerity for cuts, cuts and more cuts? If people support those, then it's true, the turkeys really have voted for christmas.

      Seek help you seem to have a major hole in your memory. Remember who tanked the economy in the first place and emptied the coffers, raising the desperate need to get finances under control. Then remember the Tories were not running the country from 2010 , they were in coalition with the Lieberal Undemocrats who did their utmost best to stagnate the economy from recovering. The cuts in 2010 should have gone deeper, faster and further than they did.

        Oh that's be the global recession, triggered by the subprime mortgage crisis in the US? And exactly how did the Libdems stop the country from economically recovering? Austerity was never an actual fix, it was a political and ideological decision which caused more harm in every country where it was applied to try and recover from the great recession, countries that used economic stimuli rather than cuts recovered quicker. That's not me saying it, that's from the IMF. But then again you think that Brexit is a good idea so your lack of knowledge of macroeconomics doesn't surprise me.

    Even if we end up taking Johnson's deal, Brexit will still be a thing for years to come. Agreeing a trade deal isn't the work of a moment, it'll take years in many cases. "Getting Brexit done" will take a lot longer than the Tories are making out.

    We want you to do what the majority of the voting public in the United Kingdom voted for.

          As opposed you harping on about Brexit and wishing economic harm on this country for the sake of ideology. I could go as far as suggesting that it is treasonous.

          And of course ignoring the votes of the MAJORITY of the voting public is the ultimate in treason as well as insulting and offensive.
