G'day ATS,

Today I voted in the UK general election, I was struck by a feeling of despair, despair with the futility of the entire process.

An analogy came to mind which I posted on Facebook and it got quite a response.

So I thought I'd share it with you good folks.

Voting is like being inside a plane, you can choose to sit on the left, you can sit on the right, you may even decide to sit in the middle, but you will always get to where you were going, because at the end of the day, you're just a passenger and not the pilot.

Now someone replied to my post on FB that this was very true, I then carried on the analogy:

But what is really interesting is this: Who's in the control tower giving the pilots their instructions.

I hope it makes sense to you guys, all the best, Kiwifoot
