Today is probably the most important day of the year for anyone living in the UK. In fact, it’s probably one of the most important days of the decade, because the choices that voters make today determine the fate of the country for the next five years.
We’re not going to tell you who to vote for – that’s not what we’re about (although I’ll tell you that all of the British LFB staff will be voting Labour). What we are telling you is to get to the polls and make your voice heard. Do not buy into the tired old arguments that “nothing will ever change” and “all parties are the same” – they will, and they’re not.
We as individuals have very little opportunity to effect change, and to rally behind the causes we believe in. Voting is one of the few actions that affords us this chance. Do your research, think carefully, then get out and put an X in the box of the candidate who most reflects YOUR priorities and values.
See you at the polls.
