Registration to vote ends at 11.59pm TODAY. Please register using the link. Ask for help if needed. Many are there to support you.
This is a very personal blog. From my heart and from my experience as a disabled and social justice activist.
I suggest, I ask and I will even beg that you choose to register to vote today. And in doing that, you choose to vote for the many and vote for Labour on 12th December.
Vote for your family. Your friends. For young people who have been unsupported for too long. For older people used a scapegoats in savage cuts to their social care. While the ultra-rich bask in obscene profit and huge global companies pay no UK tax.
Vote, vote, vote for the NHS to remain for US ALL and not run for profit.
The NHS is a jewel of our country, our history, a gift to the world. It’s people power by the millions. Let’s cherish that and give it the respect and funding it needs — to care for us all, throughout our lives.
Vote for affordable housing. Council housing available to those pushed out of the greedy property market. I say this as someone who is proud to come from council housing background!
Vote for disabled people — who exist within families and communities everywhere. And will continue to do so. Whether in older age or from illness and accident.
Disability is normality within human experience. Vote to stop the demonising of us and support us to live independently and in dignity. Freeing us to be more than slogans of ‘scrounger’ or ‘tragedy’.
Vote to support unpaid family carers — and to give our Personal Assistants/Support Workers a decent wage.
Vote for equality and inclusion. Honouring those that fought for us and worked for us in the past. Choose collaboration over conflict. Inclusion over division. We must stay proud of this and not let the Tories and right-wing bigots take this from us and our history.
Vote to fight climate change and the devastation piled on our beautiful country and our precious planet. Vote in realisation that all the rest is nothing if we, and our children, have nowhere to live and breathe safely. It’s there, changing in front of us! Vote to stand against the deniers — mostly those with money and privilege who like to think they can buy their way out of the catastrophe they have created.
Labour doesn’t have billionaire backers. It’s up against the right-wing media which tells lie after lie, and wallows in the worst kind personal attack and hatred.
Join the people power and change history. For the many, not the few!
