Vote, vote, vote

From the Sunday Times by Robert Harris, this: "Late one night in 1917, at the height of the First World War, Winston Churchill beckoned to a fellow Liberal MP to join him for a final look inside the deserted Commons chamber. Everyone else had gone home. “All was darkness,” wrote the MP in his diary. “We could dimly see the table, but walls and roof were invisible. ‘Look at it,’ he said. ‘This little place is what makes the difference between us and Germany. It is in virtue of this that we shall muddle through to success & for lack of this Germany’s brilliant efficiency leads her to final disaster. This little room is the shrine of the world’s liberties.’”

We  choose our own representatives, our Members of Parliament, and then, in that little room in Westminster, they get to decide the way forward for the nation.

Our vote is one of our most precious possessions, so, whatever we do, tomorrow LET'S VOTE
