The 1st time Caroline Lucas got elected as an MEP her majority was just 240 votes, in an electorate of 8 million. Now imagine if she hadn’t won then. She might well not be an MP now. In these Euro-elections, w. proportional representation, yr vote COUNTS - and matters.

Emotionality is what makes us human. Look into it. As for site: hang your heads in shame.

This is amazing, inspiring news. Greenpeace are doing far more than a stunt. They are seeking to BLOCKADE the Hq of BP. For a week or more. To really make things hard for them, the bosses. Have a read! This IS a . This kind of action is therefore necessary:

I got [temporary] bad knees once, from leafletting many low-level letterboxes. It’s worth it! Remember:the 1st time Caroline Lucas got elected as MEP, in SE Region, her majority, out of a population of c.9 million, was just 240 votes... In these Euro-elections, your vote counts.

My very perceptive son just pointed out that on the Brexit Party leaflet that by some horrible mistake was delivered to our house, Nigel Farage is looking away from the light, turning his back on it, and looking instead into the darkness. A pretty perceptive and deep take I'd say

The issue was whether Gina Miller’s site is crap. This much more serious effort w. serious regional samples & a decent methodology makes clear that that assessment was correct. Gina Miller’s site is a disgrace. Vote LD if it makes you happy & if all that you care about is the EU.

A danger to human health and the environment? 4G 5G is not for the common good or reductions in energy use. In fact it speeds it up

A really important point: Earlier this month, LibDem, Labour and Conservative Councillors in Cumbria all approved A NEW COAL-MINE. They said the jobs from it outweighed any considerations of having a liveable climate. This is the brutal reality of what the old parties stand for.

Whoever you vote for on Thursday, vote for a party with a manifesto. Vote for a party who actually have a plan and aren't sat on the fence!
