British Voters Head To The Polls Today

December 12, 2019

Voters in the United Kingdom are heading to the polls today [Dec 12] for the third general election in four years in the country.

A BBC story said, “As British voters prepare to head to the polls for a defining general election – the third in four years – they face a difficult choice, involving two unpopular leaders.

“Or as Nick Boles, a former Conservative MP, views it, an “appalling choice” between a “compulsive liar” and a “totalitarian”.

“The former – in Boles’ opinion – is Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The latter is Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

“It’s as if the 2016 US presidential election, where both major candidates were deemed flawed and untrustworthy, is playing itself out again three years later, on the other side of the Atlantic.”

A Guardian story said, “Britain has not faced a more critical election in decades than the one it faces on Thursday. The country’s future direction, its place in the world and even its territorial integrity are all at stake, primarily because this is a decisive election for Brexit. The choice is stark.

“The next prime minister is going to be either Boris Johnson, who is focused on “getting Brexit done” whatever the consequences, or Jeremy Corbyn, who with a Labour-led government will try to remodel society with a programme of nationalisation and public spending.”
