090/2011 general election approaching

In two weeks time, we will be exercising our democratic right to vote for our MPs again. Today I notice that the campaign posters had appeared by the road sides. It’s interesting to see that these old wooden frames with quite traditional campaign posters are still used, despite all the new forms of visibility for candidates on TV, Facebook and blogs, for example.

Our youngsters’ passive participation is alarming, though. Politics just doesn’t seem to interest many of them in the least.

    We are also in the midst of an election campaign. My son’s girlfriend runs a non-profit organization which encourages youth to get involved in issues and vote. http://apathyisboring.com
