Not Apathetic

Tell the world why you're not voting - don't let your silence go unheard

They're not voting because...

It makes no difference who you vote ...

It makes no difference who you vote for, you always get a government of lying, self-centred hypocrites. The only people suitable to govern this country are those who refuse to stand. And finally, "If voting changed anything they'd make it illegal".

Tiger43 replies: I agree, however I have to say that if I were made PM I would start a new regime and bring back the beliefs, ethics, standards, power, fear, strengnth, honour, and gods of the the ancient Roman Empire and the shiny armour to go with our new legions. And not your namby pamby bobbys on the beat, but armoured legions with broad swords, ( that`l scare the yobbos off the streets. Hence forth a new, respected and more powerful Britain shall emerge.

Matt B replies: Can we take america back as well and re-civilise it??

written 20th Apr 2005

Tiger43 replies: Absolutely, I am quite sure that the present United States as it is currently known would not only prosper but feel more at home in the cradle of the new Britian, with the values of the ancient Roman empire stated above that I would unleash upon the world as PM.

Only this way can the US become truly civilised and of course all of America`s military will come under the control of the new Britain, insuring world peace, harmony and stability. However, if required military force will be taken against any state outside the new empire wishing to threaten or pervert our freedom and strength.

Die dulci fruimini.

Quintus replies: For those of you not members of the brave new Britain (based on the values of Ancient Rome).

"In the good old days, children like you were left to perish on windswept crags.

Have a nice day."

Tiger43 replies: Yes very clever Quintus. Why don`t you talk proper? As I say, up the Roman Empire, and up yours!

Mark Golding replies: Tiger, would you be willing to put your time and effort into getting involved in Direct Democracy?
Email me at office@markgolding.com, I'm recruiting. Ignore my Christian sentiments for now. I too am a political animal and I too want to see the current ancien regime undergo a considerable facelift if not deep surgery.
If you like belonging to the Village Green Debating Society, like many on this site, and don't like political action, don't bother to contact me.

Tiger43 replies: To Quintus....Insults about my sexuality I can assure you under the new empire would lead to your slow execution. Wheres this boyfriend bit come from anyway, are you trying to queer me up? If so, look eltswhere.

Tiger43 replies: To Asterix.....Yes, leather is appart of the overall armour for the purposes of protection. Unless of course your`e making some sexual connetation about leather, in which case like Quintus "the sexually questionable", such remarks will not be tolerated.

Spartacus replies: Is this a gay chatroom?

written 26th Apr 2005

Matt B replies: keep this up - this is far more entertaining than the boring bloody election. It might even give us the promised land and a better understanding of Latin!

written 26th Apr 2005

Tiger43 replies: To Spartacus... I`m hoping you are the redeeming character in this forum. Fistly to your question, "Is this a gay chatroom" As for myself I have a harem of women falling over themselves for my rather generous affections. As for the rest of the motley bunch on this forum. Well lets just put it this way, I would be very concerned for my manhood if I were ever in their company.

By the way Spartacus, that was a very brave attempt by you and the rest of the slaves to challenge the might of the Roman army when you revolted. Us Romans appreciate a fighter, even if it was against us. We salute you.

About Not Apathetic

NotApathetic was built so that people who are planning not to vote in the UK General Election on May 5th can tell the world why. We won't try to persuade you that voting is a good or a bad idea - we're just here to record and share your explanations. Whether ideological, practical or other, any reason will do.

A lot of users would like us to mention that if you spoil your ballot paper, it will be counted. So if you want to record a vote for "none of the above", you can.
