So, it’s election day today in Britain. Up and down the land the make-up of local councils are being decided. But tell me, have you seen a voter? Is there any out there? Does anyone care?
Let me tell you about my council ward. Okay, it isn’t a vitally important one – I suppose none of them are, individually. But two days ago the election, here, was cancelled. No one has bothered to stand to challenge the sitting councilor.
Britain is suffering a political apathy that is dangerous. There are two reasons for this – a Prime Minister who has destroyed the good name of his office, and major parties who all follow the same ‘globalisation’ agenda. I fear for our freedom.
