Today is general election day. Take a walk down to your local polling station and exercise your democratic right. Don’t take the lazy man’s way out and say that voting never changes anything. It can. The debates have proved that there are real differences between the parties. If, like, many, you wish a plague on all their houses because of the expenses scandal, don’t take the lazy man’s way out. Go down to the polling station and spoil your ballot paper. If you don’t vote, you can’t complain about what happens in the next 5 years.
Every one of our families has had family members who have died to protect our democratic right to vote. It would be an insult to their memories not to use it today.
Polling stations are open until 10pm.
I sincerely hope you'll support David Cameron and vote Conservative. By now, you know the reasons why and I won't repeat them. But if you don't, I'll still love you, as at least you have the good taste to read this blog!
I texted David Cameron last night to tell him an anecdote...
"90 year old Aunty Nora - always vvoted Lib is voting Con for the first time to "get rid of that 'effing awful Gordon Brown'. If you've got Aunty Nora you've got the country! All the best 4 tomorrow."
He texted back: "Thanks and fingers crossed". For each of the party leaders it is the biggest day of their political lives. Think how they must each be feeling. The calm before the storm.
If you have nothing better to do from midnight until 6am, I hope you might tune into LBC 97.3 and listen to me present their election night programme with Gaby Hinsliff. If you’re abroad, you can listen on www.lbc.co.uk. It would be great to get calls from blogreaders! 0845 60606973!
