strat£gy for president – copy & pasted

Politics its boring, politicains cannot be trusted and my vote will not make a change, agreed? Oh how wrong we all are, thank you to Strategy for getting me all fired up about the looming elections by this excellent facebook message. In his own words ‘you spend so much time reading facebook status that 10 mins of your time to read this is nothing’…so what are you waiting for click MORE!

YO THIS IS STRATS, PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE, YOU MIGHT FIND IT BORING BUT ITS SHORT AND IMPORTANT-A LITTLE BIT LIKE KONNYKON!

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors!”

This is true and is something I have been guilty of myself. Being BROKE’N'£NGLISH I dont trust politicians and never thought any of them deserved MY VOTE. Having said that, I think its time our youngers got more pro-active in deciding WHO RUNS OUR COUNTRY. I hear alot of people complaining about the area they live in but if you dont even vote then what exactly are you doing about it??

(some of you will be bored already and will be closing this message-dont do it!-read on)

I admit that I havent voted in years and seens as there are people DYING across the world simply for the right to do so, that is double sad. Also, by not voting you are HANDING OVER YOUR POWERS to other people which is one of the main reasons that the BNP won a seat in the European Parliament last year.

“IF SOMEONE ASKED ME WHO I WAS VOTING FOR RIGHT NOW, I WOULD HAVE NO IDEA” << If this is you then please read on!! I think about 75% of the country (as well as myself) is probably with you on that one.

Below is a link to something that helped me out that I have been encouraging the YOUNG PEOPLE I work with to GET INVOLVED IN. It takes about 10 minutes or so but its a VERY GOOD way to find out WHO YOU WOULD VOTE FOR at the next election should you choose to…

Basically you select from a list of issues that are important to you i.e
CRIME
EDUCATION
HEALTH
ECONOMY
IMMIGRATION
ETC

Once you have done that, you will see a LIST OF POLICIES on each area (without knowing which political party wrote them)
FOR EXAMPLE ONE PARTY MIGHT SAY THEY WANT TO:

1. Strengthen stop and search powers
2. Make it clear that anyone caught carrying a knife can expect to be prosecuted and face a prison sentence
3. Put 3,000 more police officers on the street paid for by scrapping the ID card scheme
4. Replacement of the smoking ban with legislation for premises owners to provide smoke free areas and/or dedicated internal smoking areas

YOU CHOOSE THE ONES THAT YOU THINK ARE BEST AND MOVE ONTO THE NEXT etc etc

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Its slightly boring and its pretty intense reading but these are issues that AFFECT US ALL so its worth taking the time out…if you can spend 4 hours of your day reading peoples status’s on here then 10 MINUTES IS NOTHING!

At the end, the website tells you which party policies you preffered which not only helps you MAKE A DECISION ON WHO YOU WOULD POSSIBLY VOTE FOR but also gives you a bit more UNDERSTANDING IN THE BIGGER PICTURE so its definitely worth doing!! ITS A PROPER EYE OPENER!! Can you guess which policies were written by the BNP?? They were probably the easiest to spot…

You may be wondering why I would bothered sending this message out and maybe you would prefer we just stick to the music but Broke’n'£nglish are for the people and we think this is an important issue-get involved!! This wont be for everybody but if it gets just a few people on it-achievement!
