Had a visit from a prospective parliamentary candidate yesterday. She tried to encourage me to remain a member of the party but I feel like leaving. I feel out of step with so many decisions in the uk at the moment. Maybe it is my age. I used to be a County Councillor and felt proud to do my best for my constituents but the national parties seem to be bullying us to try to please the noisiest groups rather than helping us all to live together peacefully, accepting our differences. Maybe governing a country is too difficult for those in power at the moment.Do we choose our MPs because they talk well or because we trust them to know what they are doing?
Is democracy really the best form of government? Sorry, must get back to proof reading.
