Is social media useful, harmful or irrelevant when it comes to politics?
I've pretty much abandoned it, except for specific sport sites (or when I'm drunk). Largely because ignorance and anger upset my delicate sensitivities.
It certainly highlights the alarming number of ill informed voters we have, and goodness knows it gives the disenfranchised and those who 'exist to hate' an opportunity to vent their spleens.
But I'd argue that that serves a purpose. If nothing else it surely serves to rally those of us who despair for our education system and our appalling media.
Listen, I'm just having a wee (sober) contemplative moment.
Vote Labour or you're an idiot! ☺
