The world of politics: I registered to vote for the forthcoming UK elections but the more I hear about the issues the more I want to switch off and disengage. I haven’t voted everytime elections come round. I suppose I shall this time, though I am increasingly coming to believe politics is a waste of time. If there was an ‘Abstention’ or ‘None of the Above’ box on the ballot paper I may cross it. Perhaps I am being overly cynical. But a change maybe a good thing, and if that means crossing for a particular party, that could get my vote. As you can see I am sitting on the fence, but this whole politics thing gets me down, I’m sorry. I expect I’ll decide when I am on my own in the voting booth, looking at the list of options and crossing for my preferences.
Think of a topic or issue about which you’ve switched your opinion. Why the change?
