Well we voted in the local elections as we always do. Duty done and all that, but was it worthwhile? I don’t think it was. Nothing significant will change because elections are all about marketing our political system rather than changing it.
So why do we do it? Many don’t bother, especially in local elections and I see their point. For us, each vote is only about forty minutes from our lives, but I don’t think a vote is even worth forty minutes. Oh well, I’ve spent the time now. I wonder what it will buy?
