Two pictures which sum up this general election better than a million words [IMAGES]

General election campaign

The opening days of Theresa May’s general election campaign have been dire. First she refused to take part in televised leadership debates. Then two of her core team resigned within days of each other. And now, there is a surge in bets that Jeremy Corbyn will be the UK’s next prime minister. But two images from the campaign trail sum things up better than a million words.

A tale of two campaigns

This is how factory workers appeared while listening to an address from Theresa May this week.

Meanwhile, Corbyn was touring the West Country and Wales. Stopping in Bristol and Cardiff on Friday.

A quick compare and contrast never hurt anyone.

The battle for Britain

On 8 June, voters will have a chance to put an end to the May government.

The Prime Minister has made clear promises about what Britain will look like given five more years of her government. It will be a less equal, less compassionate, less progressive country than we have been for some time. And voters can bring that all to an end with the tick of a pencil.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
