My name is Della Reynolds and I live and work in Molesey as a specialist teacher for children with specific learning difficulties. I stood in the general election as an Independent candidate. I was concerned that here in Surrey there is a general view that ‘we don’t do politics’. Local facebook groups and neighbourhood sites removed or complained about any ‘political’ posts, even during the election campaign period. For arguing my case I was removed from most of them without warning by the Admin. With no warning and no chance of returning the internet creates ‘bubble societies’ where only those with a similar point of view remain active inside the bubble. They all agree that there is no place for politics here. So where is the place for politics? And does politics matter?
This is a view from the sideline. From the marginalised edge where those who do not share the status quo opinions find themselves. Welcome and do feel free to contribute.
