They're not voting because...
- The burden of guilt
I can't deal with the responsibility involved in making the decision. I fear that if I vote conservative, I'll never be able to forgive myself about the plight of the travellers, immigrants and the environment. But if I vote Labour and their populist policies turn out to be lacking in substance and Blair's untrustworthy nature exposed again, will I be able to live with myself either. Can I risk letting the strong-policied party I see the Liberal Democrats to be lead the country with a weak and unhealthy leader in Kennedy at the helm? The potential guilt attached with any ofthese choices leaves me with no choice but to abstain from voting altogether, as I surely could not live with myself if the decision I made were shown to make people suffer as the wrong choice surely will.written 19th Apr 2005
Tim Smith replies: You could always vote for the Green Party! Not likely to form the next government, but a few more Green MPs in Parliament can only be to Britain's benefit.written 19th Apr 2005
ryano replies: With the amount of guilt bearing down on your shoulders you are almost certainly a Catholic and are therefore voting in the wrong election. Get yourself over to Rome and elect the next Pope. (Make sure you become a Cardinal first though).written 19th Apr 2005
