Bring it on?

Betsan Powys | 17:16 UK time, Thursday, 4 October 2007

As I drown in guidelines and 'what if' meetings a sane voice reaches me from the big world outside guidelines and 'what if' meetings.

The Richard Evans Show on Radio Wales today invited calls on the hot topic of the day: should Gordon Brown call an election? Do you, the people of Wales, want an election? How many 'crucial 24 hours' can you take in a year?

Two speakers were invited to take part in the debate, one passionately for, one just as passionately against.

How many callers were there?

One.

And he was from Bristol.

Bring it on?

Betsan I just love the dry, witty, humour- but the point and analysis that you have raised- is a serious one: Just what do we need to do to re-engage the political sphere and life to the general public?

I do not have any answers (sorry!), but I do wonder if, somewhere, in our media-driven world of soundbites, we have lost more than we have gained in this regard?

Compulsory voting- bring it on?

Nobody is ready for the election. Nobody deserves to rule the UK! Vote Nobody!!!
