It feels like ages since I last wrote a political type post on this blog, I tend to go through phases with it and sometimes I have nothing to say. Or nothing I feel I can convey in writing. I wrote a post similar to this one a long time ago but a lot has changed since then so I’ve decided that it was time to revisit.
I’ve be involved with politics (although not as much as I should be) for four years now and boy it’s been one heck of a journey. I’ve learnt a hell of a lot since I first joined the Labour Party and I’ve realised that there are a lot of misconceptions and myths out there, so it’s time to start smashing them!
We don’t have EMA // Correction you don’t have EMA and by you I mean England because we, us Welsh, do still have EMA, along with free prescriptions and lower tuition fees. Despite huge cuts to the Welsh Assembly budget, the Welsh Labour Government has made difficult choices and has chosen to protect young people and their futures.
All politicians are in it for themselves // I think it’s pretty safe to say that most politicians become politicians for the right reasons, good honest reasons and they do it because they are seeking to better the world. Admittedly some of them have abhorrent agenda’s, disagreeable opinions and attitudes I would rather not discuss but generally they enter because they want to change the world for the better, whatever their better is.
All the party’s are the same // Agin, not true. Some times it’s easy to think that the party’s all look the same, act the same and maybe even talk the same but when you look at the detail, the polices and the promises that they make, they couldn’t be further apart.
What political myths would you add to the list?
