Today here in the UK we are voting; voting for our next MEP! MEP?! Member of European Parliment. A part of me is thinking why should I vote as I could be abroad teaching soon as I am currently unsure about is happening with my job. Cuts, merges and job losses are on the horizon – it will give me a kick up the backside to get moving! So, should I vote or not?
I have decided that I will vote as our candidates seem rather interesting; I always wonder how the voting is carried out and how the votes are all counted. I always vote what my heart states when I arrive at the Polling Station. This year I found it hard; as the ballot form was over A4 size; it was massive! In theory; we are not supposed to state who we voted for; but I voted for a ‘Party’ that I have never voted for before. There are some parties I disagree with their views. It is scary to think that there may be a high percentage of British voters who will votes for these disagreeable parties.
Rock, Paper, Scissors (and other variants) should solve the countries problems; what do you think?
I do not think that I will be happy with whichever party wins a place in the European Parliament; just hope that it will make my (and the others around me) life better. Fingers crossed!!
