...local election time, that is. And this year, my usual polling station has moved.
And, despite my belief that to not vote is going to be a waste of a hard-won responsibility, I find myself less enthused than ever before in my life. Once again, I'm not voting for a party, but against the others.
I wonder if this was a sign of general apathy, and will it be repeated around the country?
Whatever, tomorrow's going to be interesting.
I hope you are right but I've had decades of whinging and whining about candidates only for the whiners to vote for the same people because this time will be different. They are really listening this time. People are stupid. The latest bunch are worse as they are not capable of any critical thinking at all. They can hold two contradictory facts in their head and believe both of them.
I agree with you Julia, that to not vote is unacceptable. I will be casting my vote again this year for None of These.
Our Conservative local council is relatively competent and I don't really have any complaints. The local elections aren't happening in my area anyway but there is no way that I would vote for anyone that was affiliated in any way to any of the mainstream political parties
"They are really listening this time. People are stupid. "
My area had a 24% turnout. And the useless bunch with the red rosettes predictably got in again. *sighs*
"I will be casting my vote again this year for None of These."
I've been unable to find a spoiled ballot count so far.
"...but there is no way that I would vote for anyone that was affiliated in any way to any of the mainstream political parties"
Sadly, no matter who you vote for, a politician gets in!
