The voting paper had two folds in it, opened out it was over a foot long, all the major parties and quite a few loony's were on offer. "Right," said I as the young ladies at the desk proffered the paper and gave instructions on its use,"Where is the Scottish Nationalist?" One of the girls sighed quietly. I fear she believed me. The choice entered with a big 'X' in the usual manner of a Hibernian footballer signing his name I vacated the premises. Voting takes place in the Museum Hall and my Big Boss who is in charge of the operation informed me the day had been light (about ten thirty) and no-one ventured over the door until half an hour had passed. Rather unusual for here even allowing for the increasing number of postal votes. The EU election does not go down well.
The main parties were all represented and I did not want any off them. However a vote for UKIP, racists in suits, does influence government policy as the Conservatives are terrified they will lose out to them. Indeed the right-wing media has spent the last weeks attacking UKIP at every opportunity but offering absolutely no Tory policies! That tells you the fear at Conservative HQ. A while back I wrote to the local member of parliament and in the middle of the letter I mentioned "..it was brave of you to vote for the 'Bedroom tax' when UKIP as so strong in this area..." he did not reply! Personally I think we should vote for UKIP, I believe in England for the English! The best thing for them to do would be to give £250,000 to everyone else and send them back to their own country, but wait until after September.
Is it not funny how in Afghanistan people queued for hours to vote, knowing that bombs could explode at any time, rifle fire could break out and death was minutes away yet in the UK such an important vote leaves us bored or disinterested. People died in various parts of the British Isles over many years to get us the right to select which lying rogue will represent us, or here put their nose in the trough, yet we stay at home. Always vote, but I would like a 'None of the above' added at the bottom.
Possibly the insistence of the Police helicopter to hover over my head when I was
Ha! Acting suspiciously. Here is the reason and naturally he deafens us while watching something a mile away, typical! Nobody arrested and thousands spent. Is it cheaper to put police on the ground I wonder?
