Thats right – Now the political debate dust is settling – but what do I really mean?
On the run up to election folk were clambering over each other to shout the loudest in the hopes that their voice would be heard and I am not just talking about the political parties … I am talking about the lady down the road, the school teacher and bloke across the road that normally wouldn’t utter a word! … Their mouthpiece … Facebook!
Now normally people voicing an opinion is never something to cringe about, power to the people and all that but, hell aren’t we supposed to get a choice? the thing that really got my goat is the fact there were some that decided if you were not voting the same way then you really weren’t worth talking to … WOW .. just WOW
The whole thing only escalated once the ballot boxes closed and once again Facebook was awash with negativity, but in all my life I have never seen anything so vile as I saw on there, friend calling out friend, utterly revolting status updates for anyone that voted the current political party in … Folks is it not about choice?
I didn’t vote for the current government, but that is no reason to bully others over their own (did you read that .. Their own!) Political views!
Before the initial slating started UKIP we on the chopping blocks from many on the run up, However I believe that they did have some valid points (not all) on certain things, this country is currently swamped with people and for me I don’t care if they are white, black, green or red in order for the country to repair each and every one of us that resides in the UK need to play a part – However I do disagree with most of the methods UKIP were wanting to put in place.
Should we not all be celebrating our differences? Celebrating what each and every one of us is able to bring to the table? .. For me that’s what this is all about and my pet hate is those that are doing things legally!
So instead of berating each other lets educate and lets work together to make sure anyone coming into the UK is working with an official work permit, let’s make sure that everyone is playing fair and then lets take stock and celebrate our own choices and the differences that make us interesting .. after all who wants to be all the same?
