I hope you will vote and so take responsibility
with me for choosing leaders for nation and village.
I suggest to you three questions
worth asking that address the moral basis of things.
Which party will best counter
discrimination against ‘second class citizens’ of the UK and the world especially
those who live in hunger?
The national debt sours relations between generations. Will
the party I vote for have a sound strategy for decreasing it?
Has the party I cast
my vote for evident determination to address the crisis impacting the world through
abuse of the environment? T.S. Eliot wrote of the futility of dreaming of systems
so perfect that no one will need to be good. Every party stands or falls on personnel
as much as policy. This is why I must close by saluting stalwart village Councillors
standing down this month, notably Rory Clarke after 45 years and Jim Brimfield after
25 years, whose contributions we have greatly valued.
