At long last, Election Day is here: VOTE!

It all comes down to this.

Today is the day the people of the UK can either make a positive change, ejecting the gangsters and liars who have been running our country into the ground for the last five years – or decide to remain in chains, under the whip hand of the same uncaring gangsters and liars.

It’s up to us to make the right choice.

This Writer isn’t going to say what that choice should be. If you’ve been reading the blog for any length of time, you’ll know what I would advise.

But the choice now is yours.

Don’t let apathy stop you from voting. In fact, don’t let anything stop you.

Is the weather bad where you are? It’ll be raining on you for 1,827 days if we get the wrong government!*

Don’t have transport to the polling station? Walk.

Don’t have a babysitter? Take the kids with you.


Don’t waste your chance to make a better nation. It’s the only one you get.

    Here in the West we have sunshine & showers – a wonderful spring day. We never let a bit of wind & rain keep us indoors, we’re hardier than that. The rain makes everything so gleaming, and fresh, it’s welcome to help wash, clean, and start anew. Let’s hope it inspires many more to go & vote.

    I voted today for my Labour MP,I hope for brighter and fairer future under a Labour government.
    I’m grateful to the Scottish Government for mitigating the bedroom tax for the people affected here in Scotland,for which my husband (who has epilepsy)and I
    were severely affected by,however I feel that Labour’s policies were more to our way of thinking.
    Please use your vote wisely today,your future depends on it.

    Been and voted at 7.30am.Quite a few voters there to.Good weather usually helps to get the Labour vote out there.At first I could not see the Labour candidate,it was right at the bottom for some reason.

    I want Slimy Dave,Giddiot Osborne and Evil Duncan Smith to get their P.45,along with their cohorts.I am pushing sixty and this is the most evil,inept propaganda promoting government in my living memory.

    We cannot give the nasty party another 5 years,to many people have died on their watch.

    Stuck at work at the moment, but I’ll be going to the polling station before I go home tonight.

    As an almost lifelong died-in-the-wool political agnostic/apathete I have finally cast my vote…and it wasn’t for the Tories.

    This is the time when we can legally kick our government in the bottom if we don’t like it-I certainly voted and will be staying up all night watching it on TV. The more of the Conservative’s little yellow helpers that are voted out, the better.

    Just voted for the Labour candidate on my way home from work. It’s a nice sunny day in Cardiff Central … maybe the man/woman upstairs is a Labour supporter :-)
