I SEE that Nigel Farage has come second in the English European Elections, second only to the apathy party that took two-thirds of the votes.

It’s a funny world where people are fighting and dying for the right to vote, and yet here in this country we can’t even be bothered to spend a few minutes going to vote.

When asked why they don’t vote, people often say that politicians are all the same, in it for what they can get and don’t listen to the people.

City of York Council and the Lendal Bridge saga, so unpopular with the population of York, tends to illustrate this.This is what drives people away from the ballot box.

Now that Nigel Farage has been released from the proverbial genie’s bottle, how are they going to get him back in again?

I always vote, not for any particular party but to honour the people who won the right for me.
