The one that is about the elections, my best and worst bits of today

ImageWorst experience of politics today.

In the East of England our European election ballot paper includes a choice to vote, Ukip, BNP, English Democrats, An Independence from Europe or no 2 eu. These are five out of the 10 choices of parties you can vote for. It seems a strange strategy given the system of proportional representation for these parties to compete against each other when standing for similar issues.

Best experience of politics today.

The Church I work for is in use as a polling station today and on my way out the conservative, labour and lib dem reps were all talking and laughing together. It sounded like they were sharing ideas of how to resolve an issue one of them was facing. This is definitely the way that politics life should be.

 

About honestaboutmyfaith

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
