‘If You Vote Yes’ – by Ramona Depares


A very good article which points out some extremely valid arguments as to why we should all vote and all vote NO. Written by Ramona Depares for the Times of Malta..

It’s useless pretending most of the voting population gives a flying duck, or quail as it were, about the upcoming spring hunting referendum. The hunters do, of course. As for the rest, it’s a very small minority of people who care enough about ecological balance, environmental issues and the rest of it.

There is nothing to make the blood of the majority boil, unlike with divorce, same sex marriage or even EU membership.
