For Whom Should I Vote? 2022 Local Election

My postal vote has arrived. My pencil hovers over the ballot paper in front of me. There are a dozen candidates but, apart from the political parties they represent, I do not know anything about any of them. So I might as well be picking a horse. As someone who prefers to back outsiders instead of putting money on the favourite, my horses seldom come in. I have only received one campaign leaflet. The faces of three candidates smile out at me. So maybe I should vote for them. But I’m not impressed by the text. It’s not just the typos. More that it looks cut-and-pasted from something else. Why does it talk about saving me dollars instead of pounds?

PEOPLE’S VOTE MARCH

I’ve just come back from the Peoples Vote March against Britain leaving the European Union. Almost 700,000 people attended the march – which walked from Hyde Park to Parliament Square. Even the sun came out to support us.

Being there just felt so right. Whatever happens I’ll have no regrets about that. It was a privilege to stand up and be counted.

Brexit? What’s that all about? Even the name sounds stupid!
