Ever since suggesting and then voting for a referendum on membership of the EU, politicians on all sides have caused a great amount of uncertainty in Britain and across the world. This is proven, no doubt, by the incredible results in June 2016’s Referendum and June 2017’s General Election, and it affects each and every one of us. This uncertainty has revealed deep divisions and problems in our society. So, what do we do now?
When choosing who to vote for in the UK’s 2017 general election, you may be thinking things like “I support [candidate/party], but they won’t win here“, and then you may begin to ask yourself questions like,”How do I make my vote count?”, “What do I care about most and which of the largest parties in my area supports those things?“, or, “How do I stop [party leader] from entering Number 10?“. If you are thinking these things, you’re a victim of our not-so-great democratic process.
Brexit, just over a week in, and it’s utter madness.
