I have to say that I’m not really a politics type of person, these days it is difficult to separate many of the issues. Personality and likeability will probably be a big issue for many people. Whatever you decide, you have to remember that if you have the right to vote then you should use that right, you could make the difference.
There are a number of votes you could influence: The General Election, the Best Local Theatre and you could even make a West End Star of Emilie Fleming in Over the Rainbow. The people of the North East and in particular South Tyneside gave fantastic support to Joe McElderry and no doubt will support Emilie in the same way.
Please stand up and make your vote count.
PS: Still looking for a bit of my own support for my Trek to Everest – ideally for random acts of generosity. All money collected goes to deserving charities.
