John Sargent from Helston, Cornwall, shares his election thoughts. For the record this not BBC personality and former newsreader John Sragent simply a member of the electorate:
"I'm increasingly concerned and annoyed at the way Jeremy Corbyn continues to be portrayed by the media.
Sadly they have done a very good job on Jeremy from Day One.
They have painted a picture of him as a disrespectful, non-tie wearing, nuclear disarming, unelectable Communist with no idea about how to run the country or manage the budget.
It's been cleverly done and this dishonesty makes me so angry.
I wonder how Mrs May and her government's record would stand up to similar undermining scrutiny and ridicule?
The fact is that her mistakes, flip flopping U Turns, and the commonplace despair that this government's policies have caused across the country get no coverage.
If issues are raised they are quickly dismissed.
At this time, with an election looming, why is it that the most vulnerable in our society are not being asked for their views on how they have suffered during the last six years?
Why is the plight of those forced to use food banks not being highlighted?
What about families who cannot afford a mortgage or the increasing rents?
How are they coping?
Why are those struggling on zero hours contracts being canvassed for their views?
Why isn't May taken to task over and over again over the collapsing NHS and her ridiculous proposal to bring back Grammar schools that nobody supports?
Why aren't the funds desperately needed by these services being constantly compared with the figures that are proposed for refurbishing Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster and a royal yacht?
Why aren't the tax affairs of corporations and leading Tory MPs taking centre stage and compared with average earners who have to pay their whack?
Why isn't Iain Duncan Smith always being put on the spot for his inhumane treatment of those who rely on society's support? Why isn't he held to account for the increased incidence of suicides and deaths amongst those declared fit for work?
If there was fair and balanced reporting in the media it might lead to a very different attitude towards Corbyn from those with closed minds and others too lazy to think and carefully reflect.
The problem we are all faced with is that the Tories control the media and they are only too happy to fight dirty.
It never ceases to amaze me that when Jeremy Cotbyn asks Theresa May about an issue that she'd rather avoid, she doesn't answer but resorts to personal insults.
The appalling thing about this is that rather than the news bulletin centring on the fact that she couldn't or wouldn't answer, her insults are also broadcast.
To the unthinking, this gives the impression that she has dealt with the issue and also with the silly man opposite.
It's all completely wrong.
A vast swathe of people have been manipulated into thinking that Jeremy Corbyn is some total incompetent.
If they simply stopped and thought, they might, just might realise that Mr Corbyn is a man of integrity, a man with decent values, a compassionate man who understands and can empathise.
Through voting for him, they would be voting for a different type of politics where people are valued more than money and where society was fairer and better for all.
Why don't we all see that?"
