This is Annie Kenney, a mill worker born in Saddleworth, to get her vote she was imprisoned several times and went on hunger strikes.  

What did you have to do for your right to vote?  
During a Liberal rally at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, in October, 1905, Kenney and Christabel Pankhurst interrupted a political meeting to ask Churchill and Sir Edward Grey if they believed women should have the right to vote. Neither man replied. The two women got out a banner declaring "Votes for Women", and shouted at the two politicians to answer their questions. Kenney and Pankhurst were thrown out of the meeting and arrested for causing an obstruction and a technical assault on a police officer. Annie Kenney was imprisoned for three days for her part in the protest, and 13 times in total.

Whoever you vote for, vote.

What your finger length says about you.

Ever thought what your fingers say about you?  

A.  You are a thoughtful person with much time to waste.  Your favourite food is probably meat.  A Charmer.  If you were a dog you'd be a labrador puppy.

B. The boss.  You are the one who always gets things done, the one everyone puts on, but you will always get the job done.   

C. You are a walk over.  Everyone thinks you are a knobhead and no one listens to a word you say.  If you were a country you'd be France in 1939.  

Of course this is made up and only my opinion I have no scientific knowledge whatsoever.   In fact I don't even know why you are here reading it.
