Euro Elections

I was very pleased to see that the Anglican Arch Bishops have raised the issue of why it is so important to vote in the Euro Elections and singling out the BNP as dangerous fanatics with a racist and fascist agenda. On Saturday, for the first time in eons, I engaged in a political activity (as opposed to just voting.) I gave out leaflets for the Hope not Hate Campaign in my local town in the hopes of alerting people of the necessity of voting to keep the BNP out.

I really can understand, given the current political climate, why people shake their heads and feel like staying away from the polls but non-participation could give space to fascists and that's too big a price to pay.
