With the General Election fast approaching on July 4, politicians and people across the UK have not been shy in expressing the changes they want to see in the country. 

As Labour leader Keir Starmer lists a new deal for working people and an increase to the National Minimum Wage if he were to be voted Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak has said he will introduce national service for 18-year-olds and a triple lock plus state pension if he were re-elected. 

But what would the people of Glasgow do if they were Prime Minister? We hit the city streets to find out. 

Glasgow Times:

Lee Wilson, 24, from the West End, said: “I would put the UK back into the European Union and get rid of all the things that happened after Brexit. 

“I would take the money that the government is putting into the military to put it into social funding for hospitals, schooling, and education around transgender and gender identities, as well as counselling for transgender people under the age of 18. 

“I would also implement a system that would help single parents and parents that have children with additional needs – a system that would help them when their children are first diagnosed. 

“I would also disregard the ban on transgender and gender identity social studies, and I would allow Scotland to separatist itself from England as it wishes to do. 

“I would also bring back people that we sent home that were doing jobs that we no longer have.”

Kit Ember, 26, from Castlemilk, agreed, saying: “I would completely reverse the Rwanda Bill and immediately ceasefire trading for Israel as well. 

“I also would separate Scotland from England and put more funding into transgender education.

“I would also properly tax the rich.” 

Glasgow Times:

Bobby Todd, 83, from the Southside of the city, said he would improve education and the NHS. 

He said: “There has got to be a big improvement for NHS and education. 

“There isn’t enough money in the NHS and education can be improved. There are teachers trying to get jobs that they just can’t get. 

“It’s really bad. 

“There’s probably a lot of things I would do, but they are the main two.” 

Glasgow Times:

Cecile Chabrilliat, 44, from Garnethill, said she would like to change the level of sexism and xenophobia in the UK if she were prime minister. 

She added: “I would also like to do something about this mentality that people have that those who do not live here need to go back to where they came from.”

Glasgow Times:

If Angus Wyatt, 60 from Hyndland, was Prime Minister, he said he would: “prioritise all community-based services over big businesses.”

He continued: “Let’s face it, trickle-down economics never works. 

“Prioritise the NHS, social housing, equal rights – that’s what I would say. 

“I’m also not sure how I feel about this national service idea. I think if we want to engage the disenfranchised, we need to put more into the community and resources. 

“That’s the kind of thing I would like to do.”
