Stand up and be counted

 

Whether you love Brexit or loathe it, whatever your politics, make sure you have your say on 12 December.

Lots of politicians have been talking about “What the People Want”.  Now is our chance to make sure that they really hear our voices.

Being too busy or not bothering to vote is a cop out.    If we the people want to be taken seriously, we have to play our part too.

If you’re worried that your vote won’t make a difference, use it tactically.    That might mean voting for someone who isn’t your first choice.  Search on-line to get an understanding of which political party might come closest to your own views and might benefit from your vote.  Local polls, the results of the 2017 General Election and the 2019 European election can all give you some pointers.

For many people, this election might mean voting for the least worse option but, at least, that might mean avoiding that worse result.  Even if the result isn’t what you’d like, it might make the politicians  think, speak and act more carefully when their majorities are slashed.

By using our votes we  will be doing our best to make our voices heard.
