Reporter David O’Neill has been asking people via social media what they think of last week’s European elections.
JAYNE CURRINGTON DRISCOLL, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD: No point voting. Nothing changes.
ZOE SANDERS, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD:
What they say they’ll do and what they actually do never happens. It’s not about people not bothering. What’s the point in voting for a party when you don’t agree with what they stand for?
MAGDALENA SOSZYNSKA, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD:
If we had politicians who care about the people and the country more than their own careers, then maybe things wouldn’t be going wrong... What’s the point of voting for the lesser evil?
ROBIN MCMORRAN, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD:
I voted – because in 1994, I can guarantee that apartheid was not brought to an end by 16 million black South Africans sitting at home saying: “There’s no point in voting.”
DAVID BURDETT, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD:
Coming from a family with very strong and broad political points of view, we were always told you should vote. But our grandparents would be utterly disgusted with all the politicians today.
