Tomorrow the UK goes to the polls. Again. It doesn't seem 5 minutes since we were voting on Brexit and look where that has got us. Musical chairs in the main political parties and another General Election.
Some of the posts on social media have been brutal. I try to steer clear of nasty debates so don't worry I'm not going to
start something here. Except this. If you have a vote, then use it.
Even if you think it won't make a difference. Every vote counts.
hoping to get up early tomorrow and go with hubby to vote before
heading off to get my hair done. My son impressed me by organising a
postal vote as he is away this week on a sales conference which was set
up just before the election was called.
The country feels very divided. And then there have been the recent terrorist attacks to deal with too. The latest attacks have been very unsophisticated. This makes it hard for the police and security services to be able to predict these events. It's not difficult to hire a vehicle and use it to mow down innocent people and then go on a rampage with knives. What is difficult is how to comprehend that a person can think these actions can ever be justified.
I'm sure we will see measures implemented to try and protect us - there are already blockades being put in place on our bridges. It will be interesting to see if the works to local areas will be updated in light of this change of attack methods. For example our station area is being redeveloped and one of the things that was proposed was the removal of railings. Maybe that won't happen now. Part of me knows that we have to carry on as normal otherwise the terrorists win but I also know that it makes sense to take precautions when and where necessary.
On a happier note my grandson continues to do well.
These pics were taken last Thursday. Looking forward to seeing him on Friday.
