Politics And People
Politics consumes a huge amount of our energies. Government policies are key to how we live our lives. According to Wikipedia, Formal Politics refers to the operation of a constitutional system of government and publicly defined institutions and procedures. Political parties, public policy or discussions about war and foreign affairs would fall under the category of Formal Politics.
Politics plays a very strong part in our daily lives. It dictates what we can and can’t do and also what we can and can’t say. Governments of the day pride themselves highly on how well their policies are received nationally and internationally. People in Whitehall eagerly boast of UK policies to the World. Politics therefore sets the benchmark for everything we do and take for granted.
Whatever your political preferences one thing is certain you cannot escape from politics. It is all around us, in the workplace, in public life and in some cases even in our private lives. Whether we agree or disagree with many of the day’s policies, we can be sure of one thing that politics is always changing with the times.
Positive change can only be brought if every citizen takes a strong interest in politics. Pursue your local MP and Councilors, get your voice heard. We won’t ever know what tomorrow holds for us but we can prepare for today. Better towns and cities are not made by tea drinking, suit wearing pompous politicians- But by ordinary people like you, using your rights as a citizen to make change happen.
