Use your vote – don’t lose your voice!

leave a comment »

Millions of people in the UK today, and across the rest of Europe at the weekend, are going to the polls to elect a new Parliament for the European Union.

Do join them. A non-vote from you helps increase the share of the vote held by the smaller parties and, with the way this electoral system works, it could see a BNP member in the European Parliament. Don’t let them in by the back door – use your vote to vote for hope not hate, and make sure the extreme right wing doesn’t have the chance to claim it represents you.

And if you need any help in deciding who to vote for, try this.
