As this post goes up, the polls are opening.
Yes, it’s time to go and vote. You. Yes, you. Get down to your polling station and put your cross in the box next to a name.
For the next fifteen hours you have the choice of who represents you, in Europe and in your local government. And frankly, you’d be a fool of Russell Brand proportions not to.
Obviously I would advise you vote Labour, particularly if you live in Southend — the best local candidates, with the best policy platform in the town. But whoever you are inclined to vote for, remember that it only matters a damn if you don’t actually vote. The results are decided by those who vote, and there has been enough news coverage of a certain party that all progressive, fair-minded people should fear what could come about if they don’t cast their vote.
So go. Vote. Vote now, and vote Labour.
