Vote, vote, vote!

Not a Procurement related post, and not deliberately political - but there is a General Election on June 8th 2017 and I really do think that we all have an obligation to vote.

Normally people say "I live in a safe seat, so there is no point" or some other idea.  However whichever side wins I bet this election will be portrayed as a referendum on the Brexit Referendum, and therefore the total number of votes cast will be a metric.  Whatever your party, and whether you are Leaver or Remainer, this time (more than usual) all votes will count.

So even if "there is no point" this time there is a point - and the more of the country that votes the more confident we can be that the government reflects the mood of the country.  Or doesn't.  Whichever.
