Ive seen some unusual polling stations in the remote parts of Scotland.
I dont know why Appley Bridge dont have something like this because at present they have to come up the Shevy youth club to vote while us Sheviers vote at our library.

I thought people were seeing more through the lies, corruption and deception of governments and not falling for the usual "we promise to bring change" nonsense, but obviously not. Voting will make no difference in my opinion. The problems lie in the government themselves and all of the puppeticians that are having their strings pulled.


Comment by Howard P on 19th May 2017 at 15:01
Ab I like it!
I suspect most would agree.


Comment by Mick on 19th May 2017 at 17:01
I dont agree, people died so we could vote and vote you should
I will be voting Tory like most of the country.


Comment by Julie on 19th May 2017 at 17:46
Sorry, I don't agree. It's about ' social
responsibility'. It's always blame someone else and always the Government. Unless we look ar ourselves first, then we are going nowhere! If you smoke and make no attempt
to stop, how can you then complain about the NHS. If you make no attempt to find work how can you then use the word poverty.

As the majority of politicians these days come across as being a bunch of self serving tools, it seems quite apt to have a garage serve as a polling station. I just happen to agree with every word you say Julie, but having taken the trouble to turn out and vote ever since I was old enough to do so, I'm inclined also to agree with Ab. To quote Mark Twain, ( or as close as I can remember ) " If voting made any difference, you wouldn't be allowed to do it ."

The politicians fail to have referendums on major matters,like Capital punishment, immigration just to name a couple.There would be many local matters were with modern technologies that could be taken to the people. But politicians say we know best and give our taxs away overseas instead of looking after us brits.


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 20th May 2017 at 06:49
For once I'm in total agreement with Mick - Well said!

I SUSPECT that Howard might have something to say about this though!


Comment by Geoff on 20th May 2017 at 19:16
Ozy, there was a quote saying- If democracy really changed anything, it would be done away with. Don't know who said it though.Everyone should vote, in fact I believe it should be compulsory, so that we don't get governments with large majorities with less than 50% of the vote. Democracy!!! I don't think so.


Comment by Julie on 20th May 2017 at 21:14
Mick, your comment , which many will follow,
and agree with, is indeed justified, Sadly, I'm
afraid, no longer exists. We live in a Multi Cultural Society to which those that died for the vote, which you mention, sadly, for me,
does not hold the same form of timber, now. Maybe , I missing something.


Comment by Methinks on 22nd May 2017 at 23:21
I believe that the current Conservative government only polled 37% of the electorate, so that to me says 63% voted for other political parties. Democracy?


Comment by Veronica on 6th June 2017 at 09:44
It just goes to show that people have no faith in the candidates and are voting for the least inferior of ill equipped politicians to their minds. It is still important to vote as it is a chance to have a voice. If you don't vote -you can't complain at the outcome.
