View Full Version : Democracy at work!

In my local council elections I had a choice between two Conservatives and two Independents. I voted Independent as did my wife. I also voted as proxy for my expat son, who asked me to vote Independent.

The Independents won, the second of them beating the leading Conservative by two votes. So Mr & Mrs Raptor, plus Raptor fils won it!

Makes me so glad that I bothered.

Yes, that's democracy at work. About a third of the country turned out to vote. What we're actually living in is an apathocracy.

Fact of the matter is that 70% of the population didn't vote yet the politicians still get elected!

U_R :ok:

Very illustrative of why it's always worth going to the polling station.
