1. Bedroom tax
2. Denying disability benefit to 165,000 people
3. Scrapping housing benefit for 18-21 year olds
4. Benefit cap
5. Rise in uni tuition fees
6. Junior doctors' contracts
7. Scrapping nurses' bursaries
8. Snoopers' charter
9. Social care cuts
9. Public sector pay freeze
10. NHS "10 year diet"

There are many many more!

Corbyn wants to invest in public services- education and health by taxing the rich more. Surely you'd have to be completely ignorant and selfish to not agree with this? 4 more years of the Tories will be the end of the NHS, we'd be fucking stupid to let this happen.

11. They caused the referendum. Even though I voted leave, I didn't vote Tory last time (I voted green). The referendum has brought out some very nasty people on both sides.

I will be voting Labour this time in the hope they will tax me more and use the money to improve the NHS and reduce inequality and ehlp young people get jobs and housing.

13. The way they are handling "Brexit". Undemocratically and intent on shooting all of us in the foot of the people.
14. Their use of the phrase "will of the people".
15. Election fraud.

14. Closing down Sure Start Children's Centres. The only social policy intervention based on actual evidence (investment in under 5s) I can think of.

NHS and Social care bill.

Making a pig's ear of the economy and forcing us out of the single market even though they knew this would be a terrible idea.
Massively damaging state education.

21. The free 30 hours childcare that's inadequately funded and will therefore cost more for many parents or close nurseries.
