Democracy in Action

We went early, before school.
I did it once.
The Brainy One did it three times.
The Boy Child wanted to, but I didn’t allow him.
It would have been against the law.

Whether or not we affect the overall result,

we made our voices heard.
Have you say.
Get out and vote.
And if you really can’t find a candidate worthy of your vote,
 mark your ballot paper, “none of the above”.
“It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government
 except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.”
Sir Winston Churchill, 1947.

  1. I so so agree Ruth. It's important that our voice is heard and counted. It was great to see people queueing around the block at my local polling station.


  2. My granny marched with the Suffragettes and taught me that using your vote in an election gives you a voice to complain afterwards. I have never missed a vote since I became old enough to use it and my children are the same.
