My view on the aftermath of General Election 2017. #UKpolitics #GeneralElection2017 #GE2017 #aftermath #politicalcommentary

The UK stands at an important junction today.

Will we choose to walk into the light or plunge deeper into darkness?

Will we embrace a better future for the young or a stagnant present for them?

Will we embrace a path towards peace without unnecessary violence or the road to aggression and violence?

Will we embrace a protectionist stance towards the Earth or continue to rape the planet towards Oblivion?

Will we embrace each other with acceptance or tear our communities apart?

Will we choose a better way of life or certain apocalypse?

Which future do you want?

The choice is yours!

Here's my assessment of the Election Hustings in Thurrock.  It was submitted to Your Thurrock but still hasn't been posted so I thought I'd post it on my personal blog so it doesn't go to waste. #GeneralElection2017 #GE2017 #UKpolitics #Thurrock

Thurrock Hustings – The Aftermath
Here’s the full text of a blog entry that I
submitted to Your Thurrock but that wasn’t posted.   Enjoy! So, the
candidates faced the public and, amazingly, Jackie Doyle-Price didn’t do a
Theresa May and hide behind the curtains like a child watching Doctor ...
