It is often said that emotion outweighs logic when it comes to decision-making. Although this has never been more obvious I can’t help but hope that the balance will tip, particularly when it comes to voting.
The sheer irrationality of politics makes me steer clear of even offering a viewpoint in most cases. It’s all too easy to be flippant but the jokes cause hollow-laughter that mockingly reverberates in the echo chambers of our polarised discourse. Preaching to the converted was never less appealing.
