Jane, are you eligible to vote in the next elections?
Yes, I’m on the electoral roll now Mary, but I’ve no idea who to vote for.
Funny that, isn’t it? When I hear my parents speaking of the past, they seemed to know left from right and who to vote for.
It doesn’t seem to matter so much these days. It’s Washington, Brussels, the money markets, and the multinationals that seem to take all the decisions.
