To Vote Or Not To Vote…Could This Election Be One Of The Most Critical for Britain?


Every 5 years or so, we Brits get to chose from white guy A or white guy B for prime min­is­ter. Occa­sion­ally white guy C gets his beak in the mix, and the masses enjoy the uproar over the social media water cool­er.

This time how­ever, it might be slightly dif­fer­ent. This time it’s white woman A vs white man B. Whilst that is only ever-so slightly dif­fer­ent on the sur­face; the stakes we are vot­ing for could­n’t be high­er.

The win­ning party will pos­sess unpre­ced­en­ted power. Bri­tain has form­ally noti­fied the EU of its impend­ing depar­ture — and the job to rewrite thou­sands of laws rests with the win­ning party.

Former EU laws around the clean­li­ness of our water, rights as work­ers, cost of liv­ing, the future of the NHS, and thou­sands of oth­er laws will all be up for scru­tiny and rewrit­ing. The safety nets and social guar­an­tees we have come to take for gran­ted as cit­izen’s could come to van­ish in a post-Brexit world.

So I speak dir­ectly to you, the non-voter. You are a mir­ror of myself. You do not believe in the sys­tem or the power of vot­ing. You are dis­en­fran­chised with these pro­fes­sion­al liars, and rightly so.

How­ever. When else in our life­time have we, the out­siders, been giv­en a choice of who rewrites the laws for our Bri­tain?

I do not endorse any par­tic­u­lar party nor any par­tic­u­lar can­did­ate. I do believe, for once, the less­er of two evils, might actu­ally be less evil.

I implore you to register to vote. Do not give them vic­tory so eas­ily.

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
