Today is the day the United Kingdom will vote on its local council and European elections.
As a quick note I would encourage all members of the country to go out and vote and restore some faith into the system of the elcetorate.
Huge numbers of people do not vote. Whilst feeling so distanced from politics, the public then get upset or annoyed because they don’t understand what they are voting for but then moan when politicians do not help their daily needs. This is why it is vital to vote and get what you feel you need in your life to make it better for you. As they say, you cannot moan about it if you didn’t vote. Do not leave it to only mothers and old age pensioners, who only vote on getting what they biasedly want from corrupt politicians like the UK Conservatives, for example.
Some people are upset that their is not enough parties to choose from, so then, go out and vote for completely different parties and make the votes more of an even playing field. If you don’t vote it won’t ever happen. It only takes a five minute walk to your nearest polling station.
Have the conviction not to change or feel anxious when you stare at the ballot paper, pencil in hand reverting to the same old routine of sticking with the same. Be bold and choose something different. What have you got to lose? Did the previous counsellor come around to see you in the past 4 years of their candidacy?
Here in this area, we never saw a Tory (Conservative) elected politician at all and had no views represented. In their pledge they did nothing of the sort and the area got worse in terms of society and segregation. There is nothing available or of interest and the cost of living soars.
Today, I personally shall be voting for Labour and the Green Party in local and European votes. I was considering UKIP but over the last week, despite its charismatic frontman Nigel Farage, other party members have lost my vote. I would urge you all to vote as you wish, but I don’t see how a Troy government will benefit anyone any longer. With high taxes, a party protecting rich friends and high earning bankers with no grasp on reality, the Tories have neglected and reneged on all their promises. That itself mean that the politicians have not done their job description and should therefore, be sacked. The only way is to vote them out at the polls.
Vote for Democracy and take back the country for yourself, not a scaremongering tactic based on empty promises. You are the ones who now have the power. Don’t give it away to power hungry, abusive politicians who want to control the state their way and erase Human Rights and Democratic society. Proof of the last four years have been a looking glass to that very statement.
