First let me say I am in no way affiliated with any of the parties. I have no interest in politics yet it has somehow affected me … yes my compulsion to randomly burst out ‘Vote for Labour’ has begun to greatly concern me, especially after what happened earlier in the week. I heard an ad playing on the radio so I began to dance (yes I can dance, how well ….let’s just say that’s an entirely different story :P) in a few seconds I was belting out my popular line only to hear my mother shout “Toya dear, that’s a PNP ad playing!” (o.O) “Really?” My dad is also convinced that I’ve crossed over to ‘greener pastures’, but again, that’s another story. *sigh*
Something tells me that I should quit while I’m ahead and abandon this post. I know nothing about politics, but then what is there to know? It’s almost over though and soon (if they haven’t started to as yet) thousands of party loyalists and newly converted citizens will bomb rush the polling stations to pick their poison. As I type, I’m staring at the pop-down-looking image on my Elector Registration Identification Card; its sole purpose in my life is to prevent me from walking around with my passport for identification.
I don’t know which is worse; to vote for a party for the mere reason that it’s only right to exercise your vote, or to not vote at all due to your lack of faith in any party. Sure the ads are catchy, some/most are even humorous, but at the end of the day talk is CHEAP. I want to see some action and not continue to hear who’s got the bigger scandal or who’s more ‘unfit’ to lead.
So good Sir over there on the green side, yes I get it, you understand the crosses and tribulations that we young people face and yes I agree, you must have been a youth at some point – get over yourself and make a difference.
If you win PLEASE give me some hope or a sign that my country is not trying to ship me off to another country in search for ‘a better life’. Would be sad if they were right and it turn out that it’s the:
And for the sunset folks, well I see that you’ve said:
Well I most certainly hope that you do in fact know because if you win I’d hate to know that a bunch of clueless people will be leading us further into darkness.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to write in my ‘simple diary’ which I’ll tell you about later! (Thankx sis!)
P.S. What a gwan with the … other two (parties)?
P.P.S. Which channel were YOU watching on Tuesday?!?! – Me, I was in my room trying to block out the noise….Quite interesting though that PNP’s concert was aired on one station n JLP’s was aired on the other simultaneously
