So, today is the big day. After weeks of relentless campaigning by the various political parties, after all the scare-mongering, the party election broadcasts, TV debates, selfies and bacon sarnies…
…now’s the time. We get to vote.
It’s a very serious matter, but it does feel a bit like this…
I’m looking forward to putting my X on that little piece of paper. And I hope that everyone who is eligible to vote will also make the (very minor) effort it takes to have their say, too. Please:
I’m off to the polling station now. And for my friends outside the UK, this might help you understand what it’s all about…
Votin’ it up! Did you get a lolly for your troubles?
No lolly and today we’ve woken up to a fucking tory government for another 5 years. Genuinely gutted and very worried about proposed cuts to public sector. Sad times
Sounds like some serious bullshit. I live in a country that voted for an imbecile (twice) who basically promised free money to people who don’t work for a living as long as they vote for him. And I didn’t get a fucking lolly either.
I voted and now I am sad.
So very, very sad. I’m reeling. What can we do now…?
We can keep calm and carry on and focus on what we can do to help each other while we have a government that only want to help itself.
Well said. I definitely feel like I need to do more than simply wait for the next election on five years. Shirt. Five years is such a long time.
Was Game of Thrones one of the options?! Because I’d totally vote for that! 🙂
I wish it had been. It’d have to be better than the utter shower of self serving, elitist shits we’ve ended up with.
Hehe. Exactly! 🙂
