So here we are: election day.
This blog isn't about politics, which is lucky really as I don't know where to start with how I feel about the current state of affairs.
So all I am going to say is go and vote.
Why? well you have the democratic right not to of course, which is wonderful, but for me it's important because:
People died so that I could put a cross in a box and quite recently in my case as a woman
I see people in other countries with even more rotten hopeless politicians than ours queuing up for days to do so
I still respect the idea of parliament and want to be part of democracy
If none of this matters to you then perhaps just go to enjoy the make do and mend polling stations, the way nothing has changed in them for probably eighty years, being harassed by the exit pollsters and messing with their minds- or telling them it's a secret ballot and to just wait twelve hours.
