Vote for me.

A month ago I was asked to stand for a political party at the next general election. How many times do you get asked something like this? Your natural response is to say "No way", which is what raced through my head.
Its amazing how your brain speeds up in moments of crises. We say "our life flashed before us" when we had an accident, and its true, it does happen.

Well, when asked to stand for the election, my life as an armchair political expert flashed before my eyes. Oh how I love to sit and watch the news and run down the Prime Minister and her Government. I loudly announce to all who are in ear shot how I hate this or that. Nothing escapes my all-critical eye, to the point where the rest of the family, hesitate to watch the news with me. I hate to say it, but I realised in a few short seconds, that I am a New Zealand bigot.

I am not prepared to get of my backside and make a difference. I would rather sit and complain, moan and groan and do nothing. Sadly, I believe many in our nation are of the same mould........

Well, to make a long story short, instead of saying "No" to the man, I said "Yes".

I was rung last night and told that "I have been selected to stand."

The battle begins.
