LONDON (Reuters) – As Britain’s “Brexit election” campaign thumps into action, it may not be the country’s departure from the European Union, which takes center phase but another national fascination – the fitness service. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has chosen the Dec. 12 election as essential to break the deadlock in government over Brexit, telling voters that only by repaying his Conservatives with a bulk can the country finally escape the European Union. But many enthusiasts of the opposition Labour Party, whose vague position over Brexit has alienated some voters, believe the best shot of winning power is to focus the debate on other matters.

Opinion polls steadily show voters cite it as the second biggest matter after Brexit. Stressed under the pressure of record requests due to a growing and developing community, as well as cutbacks to social responsibility services, the NHS has cautioned it faces a deficit in funding despite the government’s assurances of extra money.
Despite its cherished rank, complaints about long waiting times for discussions and operations, crumbling hospitals, and staff scarcities are a regular article of public discourse. Labor scheme to make the NHS a big part of their campaign.
“This government has put our NHS into a disaster, and this election is a once-in-a-generation chance to end privatization in our NHS, give it the funding its requirements,” Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn stated on Wednesday, confronting Johnson in parliament.
