Do we really need to vote and isn't it up to mps anyway whatever happens?
Yes, sufferage is meaningful.
MPs make decision based on how people are likely to vote. So women have votes, so women's issues are treated with respect. Doctors have votes, so their complaints are taken seriously, etc. The population of Kent has votes, so Kent is not accepting toxic waste from China for the profit of a tiny few....etc
The fact that we are in a situation where we think our votes are unimportant is a win for democracy, because our likely votes are taken into consideration BEFORE we use them, not after.
The problem is there is no one decent to vote for. My vote is usually for who is the least worse of a bad bunch but it shouldn't be that way.
In local elections I always vote for the candidate who lives closest to me on the basis that anything that negatively affects me will possibly affect him/her as well.
