By the time the next newsletter comes out the General Election will be behind us and I imagine some very interesting negotiations will be underway. Maybe even completed.
CQ loves democracy, but is not politically aligned with any party, and I am rapt to say our members voted for every political party at the last election. This year will be no different, and demonstrates the diversity of the ecosystem that is CQ.
While democracy isn't perfect Churchill once quoted - "Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…"
Personally, I like the online polls you can fill in to see which Party you are aligned to, and then the conversations that are generated from that. Very healthy and thought provoking stuff. Often it is surprising who you are most in tune with. I have always been proud of being a swinging voter, and try and start each election with a fresh view of who I am going to support come election day.
However, to observe without judgment is a very hard thing to do when it comes to politics, but hugely beneficial if you want to actually understand what different parties policies mean.
So here's my question - do you vote for what is best for you, or what is best for the country?
