Go out to vote, you’ve still got time!
As previously mentioned I’m a strong believer in exercising your democratic responsibilities, so I’ll be off down to the local polling station in a few moments. If you can’t spare 10 minutes once in a while to help choose your political representatives you can’t complain when those representatives don’t live up their promises. By not voting you’re in affect endorsing the status quo. Even if the current scandals have put you off voting for the big three there are lots of small parties to whom you can ‘lend’ your positive vote.
It may sound cliched but people gave their lives to ensure that we are able to vote, watching last night’s TV programme about the Tiananmen Square massacre brings home just what ordinary people around the world will do to try and get democracy. So don’t waste your vote.
