ELECTRONIC VOTING

Would you like to be able to vote from home, in a secure way, just as many people shop or do their banking?

I think it is only a matter of time before this happens. However, government are surprisingly slow to adopt new technology. Perhaps they don't want more people to vote?

Postal voting is now becoming much more popular. In 1997 only 2% of the voting population voted by post. Now, the figure is about 20% (ten times as many people).

I always tell people it's best to sign up as a postal voter. You really don't know what the situation will be on polling day Will you be shielding? Will you be on holiday? Will you be too busy working? Cannot leave home because of babysitting or illness?

If you do one positive thing today, why not sign up as a postal voter? It will stop you missing out for the next set of elections in May.

FORSTSIDE DOCTORS SURGERY : MARCHWOOD…

FORSTSIDE DOCTORS SURGERY : MARCHWOOD I am grateful to Councillor Richard Young for publishing this post. There have been rumours circulating about the future of the Practice and these have probably been prompted by changes to the way it has had to operate following the lockdown and restrictions. I got in touch with the Clinical…

STEADY ON GENTLEMAN…

STEADY ON GENTLEMAN Be very careful, Presidential Candidates, from what I saw of the debate, you are both in danger of giving politics a bad name.

Jumper V Heating...

JUMPER v HEATING…

JUMPER v HEATING I have to say that I favour wearing a jumper (or even two jumpers) over switching on the heating at home. I take a certain masochistic pride in not having the heating on (not particularly shared by my wife), but I really like the thought of saving money and helping save the…

UNDERMINING RESTRICTIONS…

UNDERMINING RESTRICTIONS A most unexpected development…. when you look across social media and TV / Radio interviews and press articles, the politicians rebelling against government restrictions intended to slow the spread of the virus are mostly Conservative back bench MP's. I cannot recall many instances of Labour or Lib Dem politicians refusing to go along…
