The European and Local Council Election. Why your single vote counts.

vote

Did you cast your vote today

So that you can have your say?

Or did you sit at home and think

What’s the point, the whole lot stink?

They never do a thing for me

They sit on high so smug to see

The rest of us down here below,

Their gravy train is never slow.

So why should I lead them to think

I care about my food or drink?

Or care about the schools or jobs

Or how police can deal with yobs?

Or how the nurses will be paid,

Our NHS and lives they’ve saved?

Or roads or parks, our libraries too,

Our old folk homes and carers who

Without whom our lives would be

So different from the one you see.

So if you can’t be arsed at all

To walk down to your village hall,

And put an ‘x’ to mark your choice,

Then don’t complain you’ve lost your voice.

 

Polling stations stay open until 10pm so you still have time
