OKEY DOKEY! May 6th it is. I have already rung my party of choice and offered my support and excellent admin skills as a volunteer. I've had a call back and am going into the constituency office tomorrow. I know who I want to win and have chosen to be active.
I've already had a screaming match with my daughter this morning, who "didn't ask for the right to vote". No, but she claims her right to education for her daughter and without votes that would never have happened. Nor council housing, benefits, and the health service she makes use of. People who don't exercise their right to vote in the UK make me so angry. All around the world people are still dying (and it's 2010 for Goodness sake!) to win their countrymen and women the right to live in a democracy. We have it, we should use it. Those who don't, shut the Hell up about this country and everything that's wrong with it. The only way to accomplish change is to get to the ballot box and vote.
Kisstheapple, thanks fot the loan of the soapbox. You can have it back now! x
