EU Election

We received our ballot papers yesterday for the joke election on June 4th. There is something very unpleasant about voting in an election to a parliament that has no influence or power, and thankfully that is the case with the EU parliament.

What is really sickening though, is knowing that all your vote will do is help somebody become quite wealthy over the next five years from your taxes. That is what really rankles. But I couldn't bring myself to abstain.

So I would suggest that people vote for the party that has the closest domestic agenda to the one you would like to see in the British parliament. That's what I did.

And there are eleven parties and one independent to choose from. The ballot paper was about 2ft long. Getting on the gravy train is very popular it seems.
