I thought we might be able to manage to get a postal vote, but these won’t be sent out until after we’ve left. The only other option is a proxy vote and relying on the kids to remember to go to the polling booth.
As we’ve seen elsewhere in the world, democracy can be a delicate thing and is easily broken, especially if we take it for granted, so not voting is something I regret.
But it has set me thinking. Lots of us bloggers have signed up for a new life in Blogland, off the coast of
Thailand Burma and yet I’ve no idea what form of government Mr Pudding has lined up for us.
Thais Burmese government have enjoyed a parliamentary democratic system since 1932 is controlled by the military, but who is to say that the same will apply in our new home? It might be a dictatorship or military junta waiting for us.
This is something to raise with Yorkshire Pudding.
