So, I thought I’d bring things down to my level with my “Ben’s final thought” on this, the eve of polling day: Be in the majority: stay at home.
Yes that’s right folks, turn out will be low — will it be less that 40%? Why not stay in the clear majority and stay at home?
- Are you thinking what I’m thinking: don’t bother voting?
- If you don’t value it, don’t vote for it
- The real, real alternative – stay at home
Apparently, I’m not supposed to say who I’ll be voting for. But seeing as I won’t be voting for any of them I think I’m “in the clear”.
Ok – enough of the mucking around. People have said to me it’s awful that I won’t be voting and that it’s my civic duty to do so. My point is this: I don’t like the choice that’s on offer. I don’t want to put my name on any of them. Since when did “being the least bad” or “the best of a bad bunch” make for a viable option?
Which ever party comes into power: it won’t have been in my name.
