Prime Minister Theresa May’s message to the people in the United Kingdom talks about living up to the Christian values. On the other hand Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party said he wished to make UK the ideal society for everyone to live in.
It is noteworthy that both the politicians did not mention June general elections and the Brexit issue in either of their messages.
Ms May said, “As we gather with our friends and family, I want to say thank you to all those whose service to others means they will be spending time away from their loved ones this Christmas,” paying tribute to the armed forces and emergency services. On this occasion she also remembered the persecution of the Rohingya Muslims.
She added,” The heroes in our emergency services whose courage and dedication so inspired the nation in response to tragedy at Grenfell Tower and the abhorrent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London. But whose service saves lives in our communities every day, including Christmas Day.”
As we celebrate the birth of Christ, let us celebrate all those selfless acts – and countless others – that epitomise the values we share: Christian values of love, service and compassion that are lived out every day in our country by people all faiths and none.
Let us take pride in our Christian heritage and the confidence it gives us to ensure that in Britain you can practice your faith free from question or fear. Let us remember those around the world today who have been denied those freedoms – from Christians in some parts of the Middle East to the sickening persecution of the Rohingya Muslims.”
Jeremy Corbyn in his Christmas message asked people to show empathy and think about others. He said, “We think of others such as carers who look after loved ones, people with disabilities or dementia. And abroad we think of those living in nations like Yemen, Syria and Libya in fear of bombs and bullets, of injury and death. None of this is inevitable. We pride ourselves on being a compassionate nation. My Christmas wish is that we all do more to help bring about the kind of society and world we want to live in. Whenever you can show people love, show them you care and enjoy your Christmas.”
