Why You Should Vote

SuffrageI came across this wonderful photograph this morning via Twitter and couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Some people fought very hard to secure the right to vote, like this courageous Suffragette addressing a vast and hostile audience on Newcastle quayside way back in 1914. The rights we enjoy today were hard won. Don’t squander them.

    I agree. Let us hope that the leaders of our political parties do too.
