Apathy rules

Happily most of my constituents are more engaged - here is a conversation I had this morning

"Hi, X, How are you? I expect I'll see you at the Hospital meeting later"

"Er, no, er well, probably not."

"Really, I thought you would have bound to have been there"

"Well, there'll be plenty of other people there without me"

"Don't leave it to everyone else. If everyone took that attitude there'd be nobody there!"

"Yeah, I suppose you're right"

To be fair - in the end he was right too as there were lots of people there but I really am thankful that a lot more people took the decision to make their feelings known.
