It’s not often that I get involved in politics on my blog, however, this coming election on May 7th 2015 in the United Kingdom deserves a mention for a number of reasons, most notably public apathy and general vote wasting.
At a time when we need strong leadership, a strong vision, and an even stronger leader, the leadership debates on television have opened our eyes to the Party Leaders. However grey the line is between each party, the public needs to think about their votes now more than ever, in order to ensure that the next Government is the sole Government, not joining other parties just to get in power.
We’ve seen the demise of the Liberal Democrats, who foolishly chose to partner with the Conservatives in the last election. Nick Clegg is now just a laughing stock to many, unable to stand by his ideals under the pressure of the much more dominant David Cameron led Conservative party.
This election, please do not waste votes on the lesser parties, however much you may want to be a rebel in voting UKIP, Plaid Cymru, SNP or (cough) The Green Party. Our country IS going to have either a Conservative or a Labour Government in this election, so make every vote count.
Just because your town or city may have always been Labour, Conservative or which-ever Party it is now, don’t not vote, don’t squander your vote on someone you know want get into power. Use your vote to cut a clear line between the two main parties. Use your vote so the United Kingdom can have a decisive party leading, with one leader, one set of policies and one vision for its people.
Our country has gone through many years of some of the worst cuts and austerity measures in our lifetime. We have unacceptable levels of taxing. Unemployment is artificially inflated when in fact it is rife among the young and the old. Wages are stagnant. Housing is in crisis with too many people in it for the money as opposed to offering a real “home”. Our armed forces are crippled. The NHS is a crippled shadow of it's former self. And to top it all, the rich get richer as the poor get poorer.
This is not a party political broadcast on behalf of any party, its just me trying to reach out to you (the reader), in the hope that regardless of who you have voted for in the past, this time you will make your vote count.
