Letter From Michael Howard?Watch
you guys should count yourself lucky....the vote is two weeks before my 18th birthday so i can't vote....and i really want to .
Well I couldn't help but laugh at his inability to answer questions - surely he should have answers to all those questions in the forefront of his mind and therefore prepared to give an answer immediately? It's not exaclty hard to guess what questions journalists are going to ask.
By representative, do you mean that he reflects the ineptitude of Americans? (I don't believe that Americans are inept btw!)
I think leaders of countries should be fully competent in all areas that their jobs cover (and I think answering the public, making speeches and debating are all very important qualities). Out of however many millions of people in America, George Bush is evidently not the best leader - there must be someone out there better (remember Gray's Elegy in a COuntry Churchyard?) Which makes me question the great "land of opportunity".
You'd better get used to it. I'll almost guarantee that you'll find yourself beneath tons of government leaflets telling you how wonderful Europe is in the weeks preceding the EU constitutional referendum (if that ever becomes a reality)
government literature is banned during referendums.
It must be a new ban then since it was extensively used in 1975 when Britain went to the polls to vote on it's continued membership of the EEC.
Yes it is a new ban. The Neill Report (I think?) that also introduced the spending caps for elections / equal funding for both sides of referendums etc.
Fair dinkum. I wasn't aware of that.
p.s. every single woman that he sent a letter to in our all-girls college was addressed to "Mrs", despite saying that he got the info from the electoral roll. hmmmm.
But after visiting France recently my views have changed dramatically. France used to be dirt cheap, now it's just as expensive as the UK and it's stupid.
I don't earn enough money to be tricked into paying more than what I do already.
Personally the Europeans can shove their constitution and their monoply money right up their arses.
That is all I have to say
