I cannot help but post something about the elections today. Forget trial by media this has been trial by social media from my perspective.
It is not my place to tell you how to vote but as an ex non-voter I do urge you to go to the polling station today.
In 1918 Parliament passed an act granting the vote to women over the age of 30 who were householders, the wives of householders, occupiers of property with an annual rent of £5, and graduates of British universities. About 8.4 million women gained the vote. (Source Wikipedia)
And yet some people these days, including a huge majority of women, don't vote. Please exercise the rights that were sorely won for you. Today I was looking back at what passed for spin in times gone by, and it's all rather tame with not a pig or a wheat field in sight.
Here's how they used to do it in the "good old days"
If only we could afford homes with open fire places eh?
Less tax? Not for the average person these days!
It's always been about housing...
Would this little lad be better off under the Tories?
The concept of a team "May" have gone out the window!
Ah sun ray treatment - for when you're running through those fields...
If only tea duty was our main concern...
A message as relevant then as it is now.. peace must prevail
I hope you enjoyed this little vintage political round up and wish you a happy voting day whatever your preference.
Until next time
