Showing disapproval at the ballot box

09:37 06 December 2012

THE bright flame of democracy, which for centuries has been recognised as “the British way”, has flickered low in recent weeks under the dark shadow of Government incompetence.

Many citizens have shown their courage by taking part in the recent ballot, but by marking their ballot paper to show disgust at the attempt to politicise our police force.

Do not despair my friends. We are not apathetic. We need to show disapproval at every turn in future.
