Whether you are in business or not. You need to vote!
The General Election is upon us and I believe that everyone who can vote, should!
Being a black female and a business woman, I have a lot of reasons to ensure that I do not take for granted the ability to impact change in our nation. How? By putting my “X” in the box when polling day comes on 7th May.
I watched the movie “Selma” which was all about black people being opposed for wanting to vote. Well here we are, people of colour!
The story of Emily Pankhurst fighting for the rights of women to vote. Well here we are, ladies!
At one time in Britain, only people who owned land could vote this was changed and…here we all are, citizens of Britain!
Please do not use “I am busy with my business” as an excuse not to cast your vote as you may regret that apathy when the new prime minister is announced!
Don’t say “It doesn’t matter!” My response to that is to tap you on the shoulder and say “Excuse me, your ignorance is showing!”
Obviously, I am not going to tell you who you should be voting for, nor am I telling you who I am voting for (that’s my business!), what I will say is if you don’t vote then don’t complain about who is in power!
Looking back over history and the story of the vote, in my opinion, it would be a travesty not to maximise our opportunity of liberty and freedom to choose who we believe would be best to help us business owners, through the next few years.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE 7TH OF MAY. WHY? BECAUSE…
