For Pete’s sake, do something!
Pete is the name a distant ex had for my willy. I don’t even remember why any longer, but it has stuck.
I just got back from a fairly fun night out. I have had a few drinks, I’m merry and idiotically smiley and a little horny. I have a choice; to look after Pete, if you know what I mean – and I know you do – or write this. I choose to write this.
You have the right to vote today. Go out there and do it. And not just vote, take someone with you that was not going to. Knock on a neighbour’s door, call your mum, speak to a colleague at work. Get them to come out and vote.
If everyone does this, we can double the turnout. DOUBLE the turnout.
I don’t care if you like the current Coalition, if you think its cuts are necessary and want to support them, or if you think they are idiots and want to send them a message. I don’t care if you like AV or want to stop it dead in its tracks. Turnout will mean legitimacy for whatever the result is.
Stop giving our politicians the easy excuse of indifference. Remember – when the tally is made Abstinence is indistinguishable from Apathy.
Wake up and believe in something. And stand up for it.
Do it for the people of North Africa that are dying for this right, which you take for granted. Do it because this government has shown a propensity to dither under pressure. Do it for your local library. Do it for your local banker.
Or, just do it for Pete’s sake.
