I am truly disappointed by today's election result. During your campaign, I honestly felt a little bit of hope that the British people would finally see the damage the Tories continue to unleash on this once beautiful nation. You are, without a doubt, the most honest, trustworthy and heartwarming politician I have ever had the pleasure to vote for. Your compassion for others is inspiring.

Not only am I amazed the Tories won, but it is also mind-blowing to think that they won by an historic majority. That so many members of the British public seem to think this self-serving elitist party would ever hold anything else but their own interests, and wallets, close to their hearts is, quite frankly, astonishing.

Whilst I awoke with anger towards the many that supported the few in this malicious campaign to smear you as some sort of anti-patriotic economic danger to the country, I can’t help but feel it is incredibly important, now more than ever, to replace that anger with compassion for all, the same compassion you have shown to small communities, the vulnerable, and those who have needed it most in recent years, not to mention the British public. This compassion, that everyone should embrace, is the only thing that will hold our country together.

It is unfortunate that even those who supported the Tories in the 2019 election will undoubtedly feel the cruel austere grip that this small group of the wealthy elite preside over us with. Despite our differences, we will also need to show them compassion if this country has even the slightest chance of mending the damage caused by Brexit, and this election. The country has never been more divided than it is right now. Hate will only divide us further. I will never agree with a Tory, I will never support a Tory, however, I will do my best to support a fellow member of the British society, regardless of their political stance, if they are ever in need. This is your ethos, a community for all, and it’s an ethos we all need to embrace for the country to survive.

When people are in need, they can rely on the compassion of the British people. When Nurses, Teachers, Police, and Firefighters struggle to keep public services from breaking point due to underfunding, the British people will always rally behind them. This is, of course, no comfort when financial cuts continue to devastate these services, ultimately preparing them for privatisation. However, the compassion you have shown us all during your time as the leader of the Labour party, and you were an incredible leader, will inspire millions of us to keep fighting for what we believe is a just and fair society. Future generations will have you to thank for the continuing spirit of every single person that refuses to give up fighting for this country.

You will go down in history as one of the most important politicians of a generation.

Thank You, Mr Corbyn.
