United Kingdom goes to the polls today

Britain will head to the polls on Thursday as the issue of terrorism continued to dominate the agenda, and as both parties sough to get the upper hand in the debate on security, following three terrorist attacks in the country in as many months.

While Prime Minister Theresa May signalled her party’s willingness to put aside human rights laws in order to be able to bring in greater restrictions on those suspected of being involved in terrorism activities, the Labour continued to emphasise the impact of cuts to police forces brought in by the Conservative government, describing attempts to attack human rights legislation as a “diversion”.
