Post Election 2017

Well, now it really is time for me to get back to blogging.
I genuinely feel sorry for the younger generation and even some of the older generation who were mislead by media of all kinds .............. press, TV and social media.

There was a complete imbalance of information due, in part , to the fact that the press and TV did not tell  "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth" as witnesses have to swear to in courts of law. This undermines the democratic process and can lead to the electorate incorrectly placing their cross on the ballot paper against  a particular party or person whose overall policies do not fit with the particular voter's beliefs.
Social media presented an even more biased picture due partly to the age groups who appear to populate it, and the fear of extremely vitriolic comments which dissuaded many of the older generation expressing their vies and experiences.  
I will try to address some of this imbalance over the coming months to give those who follow this blog a more complete view of the issues that affect them and how it will affect the younger generation in years to come.
