As we get closer to the UK general election it's time to think carefully about how you will vote.
Here's a poem which might assist you.
Could you be our next MP
Can you multiply half a dozen by three
Can you tell the difference between facts or fiction
Do you understand scientific prediction
Are statistics a terrifying beast
Do you know the difference between most and least
Have you experienced life as an average Joe
Seeing what teachers and nurses undergo
Have you ever fed a family of five
On £10 a week, and kept them alive
Do you admit your lack of knowledge
Do you ask for advice and your gaps acknowledge
Have you listened to those who struggle each day
Rather than watching from far away
Do you care
When others cry
Do you have a heart?
That would be a start!
Can you say
"I don't know why"
And ask for advice
Knowing that's a vice
If you can not answer yes
Then you've failed this simple test
Every person* 18 years or over is invited to vote for one candidate in their constituency to become their next Member of Parliament. You can expect to choose from representatives from Conservatives, Green Party, Labour, Liberal Democrats and possibly some others including independents.
