Make sure you vote today!

 Here in my Scottish constituency of Edinburgh Northern and Leith the numbers seems to be down slightly on the UK General Election vote of a year ago, but people were coming and going to the station when I got there at 9.30 this morning.

All of them were over 60, but that may reflect the time, with the youngsters turning out later, or not as the case may be. Certainly I did not see a single 16 - 30 year old anywhere near the booths this morning.

I cast my ballots for the SNP and Labour, so that's my job done. If you haven't voted yet, then make sure that you do, no matter where you live in the UK.

The politicians only listen to the voters, not the ones who cannot be bothered to vote, which means that my pension is pretty much secure, but that's not the point, is it?

So make sure you vote today!
