So, here we are with only one more full day to make our decisions on who we are going to vote for, or not as the case may be.
From conversations I’ve had with people over the last week or so, it seems to me that despite a variety of leaflets dropping through our letterboxes, and numerous party political broadcasts on television, most of us haven’t a clue.
Not only are we lacking in knowledge of the parties who are standing in our own wards but many of us are apparently still in the dark as to how the voting / election process actually works. Someone, somewhere is not doing their job properly if this is the case, I suggest. Either that or the majority of us don’t give two hoots about who gets elected to represent us on our local council.
Maybe this is the “my family has always voted … ” scenario or is it really that we don’t see anything getting better for ordinary people and the divide between rich and poor is becoming wider no matter who is elected ?
Personally, I am in no doubt who I am not voting for, but that leaves me (as I have stated elsewhere) with either spoiling the paper – wasting my vote as some would say – or voting for someone who appears to have very little in common with me and my family, apart from living in Maltby.
Perhaps a revelation will come to me overnight tonight or tomorrow that shows who I should vote for without any doubt that this person if elected will make a difference, for the better, to our town. I doubt it, but miracles do sometimes appear to happen.
