Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024


Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

    Hi ami2301, I'm a 57yr old woman, married with 4 children and 9 grandchildren. I share my little ground floor flat with ermmmm, lots of cats (9)!!!! I have hedgehogs in my garden and I feed a beautiful fox.
    I don't work, as I suffer with rumertoid arthritis, Copd,heart and liver disease, chronic kidney disease and diverticulitis. I live my life in pain, but I try to be cheerful. 
    Life is not always good, but we only get 1 and I try to enjoy it.
    Is this too much info ? :)
