Tomorrow we go to the polls, to vote for the next leader of our country. For some it is a standard affair, one that has been repeated for most of their lives, for others its a start, something they may have never really done, nor bothered too. For some it is more important than it is for others. Some won’t really care about the next step in our countries evolution, some won’t be bothered about where, and what state, our country will be in for the next election. Others however, have suffered, some harshly, others not so. Some have been scarred by the current Prime Ministers lack of focus on the majority populace, choosing to work for the elite, the cream of society, those who look down on the common man as nothing more than a worker, or plebeian. Personally I do look down on society, but not for reasons of superiority, but more disappointment. We choose this leader, we picked him to lead us and move our country forward. Based on a set of lies and deceit, we are convinced, daily, that it was Labour who ruined our country, Labour who caused the crash, and Labour that plunged our country into disarray. Many forget it was Labour who created the foundation that the Tories built upon, Labour who formed the foundation that allowed them to leap frog into their current “Golden Age”. All Labours foundation, all Labours work; the winners look like the Tories, thanks to that hard work.
Tomorrow marks a day where you can make a huge difference. The Tories have ruined this country, not for everyone, but for the majority, the working man and woman. I am not one to say to someone “Don’t vote for them”, that isn’t democratic, nor is it fair. I am one, however, to point out facts, figures, and yes over exaggerate my opinion (it always sounds 400% worse than I say it is; sorry). You may think that your “Demonstration” vote of the Greens, or Liberal Democrats will send a CLEAR message to the Conservatives; alas it will, but not how you think. A vote for any one else, other than a major party is, almost, a wasted vote. If you vote for the any other party, you remove the chance of the Conservatives being pipped at the post. Thanks to our outstanding method of voting (sarcasm), if the Tories win the majority, it is THEM that pick the Coalition, no one else. So voting for Greens, Liberal Democrats or UKIP as a protest vote is INDEED a wasted vote. It merely allows the Conservatives another term in office, another term to suck the country dry, another term to kill the weakest, and least protected of society.
Tomorrow I urge you to vote Labour. They are not perfect, they are not going to change the country overnight. Labour will change, for the long term, the country for the better, just like they set out to do during their last term in office. I didn’t see Labour cutting benefits until people killed themselves, I didn’t see Labour sitting silent as more and more people relied on food banks. Labour set the ground work for a great country, a country that, today, has climbed out of a black hole. It would have been a smoother ride for all, had they managed to get a second term. Alas thanks to tasty propaganda and lies, the Tories stepped in and have claimed the hard work for themselves.
So tomorrow, please, vote. Vote for whoever you want, but please remember that when you put your mark down, you are directly having an impact on peoples lives. Remember that under the Tories people have died, not due to negligence, through ignorance. Don’t allow that to happen any more. Let us make our country a great one, let us create a country that is strong, proud and loves its populace.
