On the 10th of June, all of the UK will be voting in the European elections, and Londoners such as myself will also be voting in the London Mayoral elections.
A new blog has been set up to encourage people to vote. I heartily second that. If you don’t vote, and someone you don’t like gets elected, you have no right whatsoever to complain.
I may or may not reveal who I’ll be voting for in a later blog post. I’m certainly not going to say now, as it would defeat the point of this one – whoever you are, and whoever you support, make sure you plan to use your vote. (In my view, the electorate should get more of a say on policy than one vote every few years, but it’s all we have, so let’s make it count.)
