I’m not sure how any politician can claim to have a mandate when they are elected by just 32% or less of the total electorate. Yet, for years, we have been quite happy in the UK to allow this state of affairs to continue. Surely the time is now right to introduce compulsory voting with fines for those with inadequate reason for not voting. After all the sick and those unable to attend a Polling Station in person can now easily obtain a postal vote. It used to be quite a complicated process to be able to vote by post but not any more.
In my opinion it is a Christian duty to use one’s vote.
