I have just returned from voting. I put my vote in for Labour, Corbyn and a fairer Britain.
I voted for more equality, more funding for schools, the NHS and Social Care. I voted against the continuing cuts and austerity for the poor and public servants. I voted for more taxation on the super-rich and multinationals. I believe they should contribute more. I voted against the theft from pensioners, the disabled, poor and public servants to give tax breaks to the super-rich. I voted against Fox hunting, Grammar Schools, Religious Schools and Free Schools. I voted for a softer Brexit without tariffs. I voted for a caring Labour Party and against an uncaring Nasty Party. I voted for the many and not the few.
I voted for a Labour manifesto that is the best manifesto I have ever seen.
I ignored the Tory lies that have been present in all the media, painting Corbyn as an incompetent extremist. He isn’t.
I voted against the establishment who are running this unjust, unfair society. I voted for a change to something better.
But my vote counts for nothing. I am disenfranchised.
The area I live in is staunch Tory. It would take a monumental reawakening for it to change. My vote, no matter how well thought through, how passionately felt, is completely wasted.
This election is fought in the marginals. The vast majority of people, in both staunch Labour and staunch Tory areas, have no reason to vote. Their votes are wasted.
The election is actually affected by a small minority of people in certain marginal seats. The rest of us make no difference what so ever.
That cannot be right!
In a democratic system every vote should count.
WE NEED A SYSTEM OF PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION SO THAT EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!!
