Day 041 / Petros "A bright future, just a bright future!"
Day 042 / Rajos "To live a happy life, just go out there and hopefully live out whatever my purpose is by then I guess. I believe everyone's life is already written. So that means maybe I'm living out my purpose now but anyway. Regardless, just being happy and hopefully, you know, I like music a lot, maybe I could do that as a living. Just primarily having a happy family, kids that are happy, everyone around me is happy, friends and family are good. And just discover as much as I can in life as well. Theres so much!"
Day 043 / Shelley "I would very much like my children to live in the UK where it's not falling apart like it is now essentially. I wouldn't want the NHS to be deconstructed and have them pay for the NHS when they are older with their own children. So yes, I want the UK to be great again, and I don't mean sending immigrants back, I mean great in itself. It doesn't matter who lives here, I think we should open it's doors to anyone because it's a welcoming country, it's a good country."
Day 044 / Geraldine & Clive "I'm hoping for something to be sorted out for elderly people when they go into care. And also the NHS, more money being ploughed in." (Geraldine) "I'd agree with both of those. We could certainly do with some more police on the streets and tougher sentencing for those who attack policeman. There's no respect at all now for the law and I have to say, in some respects we've brought it on ourselves because of the way we deal with them. It would be good to see a little bit more protection for the police certainly." (Clive)
Day 045 / Joy "For everybody to stop talking about Brexit. I don't think my life will change. Unless its big business, I don't think anybody's life will change so I think we'll go on as we go on."
Day 046 / Lorenzo "I'm hoping to start a new career in film making. Hopefully when I finish college and get some new projects started. Maybe start a podcast or something. Yeah, I want to know about people's life experiences and everything. So get people on and talk to them and get their different life stories."
Day 047 / Lila & Louise "Well I was pretty happy I was spending the Brexit weekend not in the UK but in the EU in my favourite city. And now the following Brexit week off to Prague. So my hope would be that the future generations, and my generation, can perhaps have all the things I had and be able to leave England when I was 18 and go and work and meet all these wonderful people and live. So my hope would be that it's not all lost and that we might perhaps see it again." (Lila) "I'm hoping - I saw somewhere that since we left the EU Boris Johnson is going to allow genetically modified crops to be grown and that really upset me because I'm a great, great lover of wildlife. Bees and insects and all the rest of it and so I hope that he would stay with what the EU do because they've banned and don't do GMO. So thats my hope." (Louise)
Day 048 / Jenny "Really hoping for prices - would be nice if they stay lower but I think everything is be going up at the minute really. Tax, that's my thing, taxes. I just heard that inflation might be going up by so many percent. Hopefully stay the same. So hope for the best - new Brexit, new government - looking forward to next year (laughs) there's nothing change this year anyway so what's the point? So I'm just going to wait for next year."
Day 49 / Mike “Well, more of the same. (laughs) More of what I've got already, I'm very lucky. I lost my first wife and remarried and that's worked out really well. She's younger than me so she goes off to work and leaves me to look after the dog. Yeah, I'm quite happy with life. A bit disappointed with the Brit-exit thing to be honest. I was hoping to stay in but we'll only learn about that in time if it was the right thing or the wrong thing to do."
Day 50 / Yancey "I'm hoping for a government that will consider the whole spectrum, everybody's lives, 'cause not everybody has dollars to throw about and there are people struggling. And I can't believe that in this day and age even working people are being forced to use food banks. The other thing is the benefit system, which is a shambles. It was a good idea to try and combine all the benefits together but it clearly hasn't worked. It takes five weeks – if you are lucky – to get any money through. In the interim you're offered a loan so when you do get your benefits you're then paying back a loan. Well, these people wouldn't go to a bank for a loan, so its the government thats forcing them into poverty. So even when they get their benefits its not a relief, its like, 'Oh, I've got this! I've got that!' – on top of their bills and everything else to pay for. I just think it's disgusting."
Day 051 / Darrall "Better roads and a new ticket machine – its like from the 1960s! And more traffic wardens, so that the highway code is observed properly and buses can do what they're supposed to do without people parking in loading bays - and less pot holes!"
Day 052 / Marietta "Just travelling and writing books and er, see the world. I write romance, I haven't been published yet but I hope to be. And to make dresses - I make dresses - wedding dresses, night dresses."
Day 053 / Susan & Nicola "I'm hoping to move out to Melton Mowbray to be closer to my Dad and Step-Mum and I can't wait to hopefully be here." (Nicola) "And I'm hoping to have an operation on my knee and my foot, come, probably June..." (Susan)
Day 054 / Darren "The Charlatans to tour. That's what I want this year, I want The Charlatans to announce a tour. ...I've had a retweet off of Tim Burgess and a few likes. He was doing a thing where businesses that are named after their songs, (so) I sent him a picture of that shop in the Victoria Centre called Sostrene & Greene and he retweeted it. Technically best mates aren't we."
Day 055 / Ali "I just hope you know, as I told you, my situation to sort out alright in 2020 and complete my study. And Brexit, like everything is going to change for the people who're (in) the same as my situation. Because you know I feel like I am loosing my time, because you know I'm 26 now and I feel this is an age I can do something. But if I get (to) like 34, 35 I feel like a bit old and my dreams will be like.... (sighs) It's like, you know, anybody's dream, just for example I have my family problem back home and I can not even go and see them because I don't have a passport and I cannot even send (for) them to come here to see them. That is my dream, just to get (my) document(s), just to feel free like I can travel, same as you know every human. Thats what I'm hoping for."
Day 056 / Phebe "I've always wanted to travel to Australia and around the world. That is my hope, to be able to travel."
Day 057 / Paul "Tyson Fury wins on the Deontay Wilder fight. And to be honest, Mum's just got better from cancer so I'm hoping that stays away and she gets better properly. But thats the main thing I'm hoping for to be perfectly honest, my Mum just to be healthy, happy, I'm happy."
Day 058 / Yvette "I'd like to know whats going to actually happen. I'm very interested to know how they're going to cope with the border in Ireland because that could be a major sticking point and the last thing we want is the likes of the IRA or the RUC or anything to start getting into a knuckle duster again up there because it would be just devastating for all the people who live there. Brexit and how its going to pan out is one of the big ones. I think they're wasting money hand over fist on things like HS2. The first leg of it we don't need. What they need to do is improve the northern most part of the country. So I'd like to see more detail about all of that and I think the costs are just escalating completely out of control. And then they say there's no money for the police or for the NHS and for other things that they have promised but we'll see. I'd like more money putting into education as well. One of my daughters is a teacher and they have been squeezed, the schools. I know of schools where the teachers have had to put their hands in their own pockets to buy resources for the children and thats not right. They shouldn't have to do that. If its a paid for education system then it should be paid for and they, er, had a wages freeze on them for long enough and then still expected them to put their hands in their own pockets to provide for the children because they were always going to do that because most of them are just so conscientious that the last thing they want is the children to miss out. So, they're about the main points!"
Day 059 / Ali "...just be healthy, going to work and making money for family and being happy with everybody and being positive for things going on in the world. And er, praying for everyone. For being happy and healthy and safe (with) whats going on in the world and all this virus and illnesses. Praying, I mean I'm not very religious, but that's kind of, pray doesn't have to be religion, its just... wishing for everyone to be happy because being positive, you know, when you see positive people around you, you become positive. So when you're positive you make people positive and thats how, I don't know, thats how I think human nature. But thats what I hope. Working hard for family and helping as much as you can, helping others and being positive. Positivity I think is the best thing in the world to do."
Day 060 / Caz & Natalie "So, probably the top of my list is with what happened over the weekend with Caroline Flack. For us to be a lot kinder and realise the consequences that it has. I don't understand how people, online bullying, I know these people are in the limelight but they don't deserve what they get. For someone to take their own life is quite sad so I'd say for people to be more kind. ...and then obviously for Liverpool to win the league, because I'm a Liverpool fan! So they're my two things." (Caz) "I'm building a house, its a renovation project. My main worry today is getting home because they've closed all of Hereford, they evacuated it! Its all underwater - but my house is alright, its on a hill!" (Natalie)
