It is Election day on Thursday and don’t we know it, I put on the news, that is all I hear, I sit down to watch a popular program and there will be a party political broadcast. I look in the paper and that is all I see. It is everywhere and to be quite honest I am fed up with it.
One thing that really annoys me are the polls that I keep seeing, do that actually ask real people? How can they judge who will be Prime Minister when it is not a nationwide poll. It is stupid and just propaganda.
My mum had a Conservative campaigner knock on her door the other day, waffling on about why Conservatives are so good, my mum, being quite decent let her talk the talk but at the end of the conversation the woman said to my mum…’So we can count on your vote?’ My mum replied no and the woman looked shocked and asked why. My mum said because I am not voting for you and shut the door before the woman could argue as to why my mum would be wasting her vote by voting for someone else.
Why try shoving your views etc. into someone else’s faces, we can all see what each party are proposing because we have seen it day in day out on TV, in the papers on the internet, there is no getting away from it. We can make our own minds up and do not need some person coming to our door basically asking for votes.
I am sorry but any campaigner coming to my door will be in for a wasted walk. I can see who is at the door before I open it and if I see it is a campaigner I simply do not open the door.
It is a waste of their time and mine. Asking me who I am going to vote for…you know that little box you stand in to vote that has the privacy boards all around? that is because it is a private vote you do not have to tell anyone who you are voting for, it is no ones else’s business either.
