After a general election in the UK some years ago, I was intrigued as to why a friend, who was politically knowledgeable, did not vote. He said to me, “There is corruption in elections all round the world, what makes you think that this country is any different?”


“Those who cast the votes decide nothing.
Those who count the votes decide everything.”
Attributed to tyrant and mass murderer Josef Stalin.
