Well, to say the last couple of weeks have been busy would be possibly to make the biggest understatement of all time. There have been all sorts of things going on, changes occurring and hopefully a future being found.
Evans, bless him, has taken all of this in his stride as he works along the principles of what will be and as long as I’m fed, walked and given free reign to make mischief. Hmm, the last one of those is certainly a debatable matter, but it is all part of his charm.
The general election has caused a bit of a stir to say the least. We went off to ensure that our democratic right was exercised and were encouraged by the improvements in accessibility shown although, we are still a way off achieving a system where we can rightfully vote in private and although people’s kindness to help cannot be knocked, the campaign to ensure equal and respectful voting must continue in Ernest.
The results of the election brought out some interesting reactions from people on the radio. One, I heard with shocked amusement, felt that in future only tax payers should be entitled to vote as they were the ones who paid into the system and those who didn’t, should not be given the right to say what system they lived in. Yes, little did that person know that everyone in essence who passes money over in a shop is a tax payer so his argument really does disappear in the cavernous ignorance of his ill-informed mind. Additionally, I heard another person say that young people should not be entitled to vote because they have no experience of the world and cannot remember the governments that caused us problems in the past. Hmm, interesting, but let’s see, could a counter argument say that wasn’t it the votes of the older generation that decided the Brexit vote? Essentially, an older generation deciding on the future of the younger masses? The arguments could go on, but to define who should vote on age (within the current law), whether they can pay taxes and let’s see it could be taken on to who perceivably contributes to society more, is a dangerous path to be going down. I’ve had it said to me more than once that do you know what’s going on in the world? The reply that I’ve always wanted to use is no ‘I live on the planet mars for most of the time’.
Anyway, the theme of the last week has been change and taking control of my future. I’m doing that and am very proud in the decisions that I’m taking and being enabled to take. More information in a later blog article I’m afraid.
