This blog is a follow on from Laurie's blog about the US midterm election but with a UK twist. It's about being informed about policies which have far reaching consequences rather than the negatives which we have become used to. In our coming election there will much talk about immigration the economy, the NHS and reining back public expenditure. However the biggest single question will be the UK's membership of EU.
We will be bombarded with rhetoric and misinformation about Europe from both sides of the debate, who to believe?
It may be wise to ask yourself a simple question:
' do i know what it would mean if the UK exited the EU'
If like me you find yourself thinking I don't know then how can we make an informed decision as to which side of the debate our vote should be cast, i.e. do you support a party or an individual candidate who wants to leave the EU or stay in.
I for one will research the pros and cons of remaining or leaving before casting my vote. I will not leave it to politicians or uninformed canvassers to sway me either way.
As I have said the question of Europe is the most important issue facing us, the electorate, it is devisive and we already see battle lines being drawn.
I would ask that this blog is not used to voice your views one way or the other. I have written it so that we as intelligent adults can put forward your thoughts on being informed before casting your vote.
